Happy Blog Birthday Motherhood and Merlot!

It has officially been one year since I started this blogging journey and wrote my first post here at Motherhood and Merlot. What a fun year it has been!

one year blog anniversary

I started my blog at first because my hubby thought it would be a good creative outlet for me. For those that have been with me for a while, you know I am at the end of my Master’s degree, have two toddlers, and I am expecting twins any time now. Beginning this site was a way for me to connect with others and share my creative thinking with wonderful readers like you:)

I didn’t think when I began this that it would turn into one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Aside from having my own personal space to write and talk about whatever I want, I have made some amazing friendships with other bloggers, learned so much from them and others who have been doing this much longer than I have, and have also begun to turn this website into a small business that I can run from home while I take care of my kiddos.

Not only that, but I have grown to love to appreciate this little family of wine lovers, mothers, parents, women, men, beauty addicts, those looking to empower others, and everyone in between that read and support Motherhood and Merlot.

I am thankful for all of the opportunities, both good and bad, that I have been given in on this journey, and I can’t wait to see what the years to come bring for the Motherhood and Merlot community:)

As a little “thank-you” for those that have followed this blog and have shown so much support over the last year, here is a little giveaway for you:) I can’t celebrate with wine, seeing as I am due to have these babies anytime now, but I can celebrate by giving back to those that have shown so much support for this blog. It is nowhere near the amount I wish I could giveaway to show how grateful I am, but I am so thankful for this community and this opportunity!

Cheers to each and every person that has helped this blog and community to grow!
