Blogoversary Winner

My one Year Blogoversary arrived on March 31st. Our daughter Jan came over for a Celebration Lunch. She introduced me to blogging, and has encouraged me in my endeavors.
Her DH asked "Does everyone have a party on their Blogoversary???" and of course we do. It's certainly a cause for a celebration!
It was so much fun to read all your comments on my Blogoversary post. :)

All the names were put in a basket and my DH drew without peeking! And the Winner is
Nana Trish from Living the Dream! Congratulations!
The rest of you can take a flower from this bouquet. Thanks so much for sharing in this journey with me! Looking forward to more blogging this year!

I like the idea of a REAL party for a blogiversary. I'll celebrate mine this June. You look so pretty in that picture.

I don't want to embarrass you, but I think you announced the WRONG WINNER. It was me, right?

Hi Ruthie,

Sound like you had fun :) at your party.

I'm slowing on the blogging now because of time with my kids, but I try to post something every now and then and check the blogs of my online friends.

Congratulations to Nana Trish for winning the wonderful prize and thank you, Ruthie, for the wonderful posts. I love reading about your childhood in China and, of course, about what you are doing today. I love the picture of you and your daughter.
