One Year of Blogging


One year ago today, I published my first post on this blog.

When I first started this blog I had no idea what it was going to be like.

I just felt like I should do it.

It hasn't always been easy but it. is. so. much. fun!

To all of you out there who have ever read my blog,
thank you.
Thank you for your kind comments.
Thank you for your friendship.
Thank you for your time.

I've only ever done one or two giveaways on this blog before,
 but I thought this day deserved to be celebrated with another one.

Here's what I'm giving away to one lovely reader as a thank you:
{Wish I could give something to you all!}


I've included a few of my favorite things:
hard red wheat for growing your own wheat grass
{instructions will be included}
a package of blank thank you notes
a handmade flower pin {made by me}
a $10.00 gift card to Tarjay
{love, love, love shopping at Target!}

All you have to do to enter this giveaway is leave me a comment letting me know if you are a follower of this blog, subscribe to this blog, or you are a frequent reader.
You don't have to have your own blog to enter.
{Just click on "comments" at the bottom of this post.
Under "comment as", just click anonymous and leave me your name so I know who you are and can contact you somehow if you're the winner.}

Giveaway closes one week from today, Thursday, June 2nd.
Winner will be chosen by random.org.

Thank you all for a wonderful year!

Robin, I so appreciate your blog and how you keep plugging away at home projects with a tight budget. My husband and I lived with little ones while working on our first flip house not too long ago and it was hard! Thanks for all your inspiration here. I just started a blog this year and I love it! Thanks for the chance to win this giveaway...been wanting to do that grass project with my girls for a while now.

Hi Robin,
I don't remember how I found you but I do remember I loved your Title. I am for Less is More so your title of Keep Home Simple on a Budget fits in great! I think I found you a few months ago when you were redoing your playroom. Thanks for all your great posts. You and your family are beautiful!

My allergies are killing me the past few days so I am just getting "blog caught-up"... whew! So fun though!

Several things...put my name in the drawing pretty please because you know I blog stalk you like crazy! ;) Second, I wanna hear all about how "Connect" went. R wound up NOT having to work OT (is it so naughty of me that I was disappointed in this?? I LOVED the evening at home with him but the paycheck cush would have been divine) Third, we SAW your t-ball party! ha ha We were just rounding up a 3-mile walk with lil man and saw your gorgeous flag on the railing..so we peeked over on our tip-toes! ha ha Yard looks fab and you had a LOVELY turn-out! So thankful the weatherman was WRONG and you had a nice day!!
