Two Year Anniversary Giveaway:Mini Cookbook Album

I can't believe it has been two years already.....Where did time fly? I remember when I first started this blog that I really only planned to share my dinner with people. Before that I had been doing it on my personal time line. A few of my friends/family suggested that I start a blog  I had always followed food blogs but never really had one. As I began looking I began realizing that I could do that. I remember one of the blogs I came across was Cooking With Libby. I asked her questions and she had no problem at all helping me out. I am still a huge follower of hers and always will be. She's an amazing person. Check her out if you can. As I began working on it, I realized that I could do more then just share my dinner plans with people.  I wanted to help people, and as a Stay at home mom, it also gave me some way of sharing myself with others. When I started this I never expected to have many followers. I remember trying to reach 50 people, then 100. Now I'm at 5,427.  My goal was to always be myself, to include kids in the kitchen, and to encourage family to sit around the table. Enjoy food, enjoy family.

One of the most amazing things about blogging is all the friends you gain. I have so many good blogging friends, that are awesome people. I wouldn't trade them for the world. We laugh, we share our struggles, and chat about life.  I think its crazy sometimes how people you come across have been actually following you. Many many people are like " Oh I know you, I've been following you".  Makes me feel good :-)

I want to give a big thank you to everyone who have helped me get to where I am today.  They have been amazing.  Many have shared my page, shared my recipes....helped me out when I get frustrated. Let me rant and rave :-) Here is to the next year of blogging.

Now on to the giveaway! I gained a new friend this year who is also a blogger. She owns CBC Scrapbooking. She makes amazing scrapbooking pieces, mini albums etc. I actually met her through Js cousin. So glad I did and it turns out she had been following me already :-)  Make sure you please go visit her facebook page and blog. Lets show her some love. She has donated this lovely Mini Cookbook Album. You can fill it with our own memories, tips, recipes etc.  This is such a beautiful piece.   She is almost to 1000 people so lets help her reach that.  Here is where you can find her stuff:
