a pretty cool life.: Wow.

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

Wow.

Sorry, contest is now closed.

My little ol' blog hit 1,000 followers yesterday. 

1,000.

That's crazy to me. 

Blows my mind.

I'm still shocked that people read what I have to say.  People that I don't even know.  People other than my own mom.

So thank you.

And to show my gratitude, I'll make a gingham bunting for a lucky someone.  20 flags, any color combo your little heart desires. 


Just leave a comment with the colors you'd like, and I'll pick a winner Friday. 

xoxo.
