1,000 is a Big Number {giveaway}

Hello my lovely readers!

Today is a SUPER exciting day for me, but first, let me tell you a little bit about this blog. I actually started this blog when I first moved to beautiful Hawaii in 2010 as a simple way so friends and family elsewhere could read about the island life I am now living. I didn't intend for it to grow like it has and basically just used it as a daily journal to write down events and my thoughts. I wasn't sure if anyone even read it.

Fast forward to the end of 2012 when I got together one day with my good friend Jessica and her hubs (who I actually met through this blogging community a few years ago!) She told me how she was doing in the blogging world and how far she's come. I complimented some of her belongings and clothes and she told me she had won them through giveaways and product reviews. I was fascinated. I begged for more info! She helped me out TREMENDOUSLY in figuring out a nitch that would work for me and I decided to jump feet first into this new life.

My first design was installed on Halloween, 2012 by the amazing Sarah of Span Tag Designs and it was off! I dedicated so much time and effort to launch my little home off the ground and show people my life through the internet. I have to say, I am still in the learning phase of so many aspects when it comes to blogging, but since November 2012, I have made a handful of really good friends, learned to design my own look, and have gone from 15 readers to 1,000!!! I am in complete awe. I am so thankful for all of you who constantly read about what goes on in this crazy thing I call life, and I am also so thankful for the wonderful friendships it has given me!

So without further ado, I am bringing all of you lovely readers of mine a giveaway that keeps on giving! It will include TWO prize packages that will go to TWO winners!
