My favorite thing about blogging… is getting to announce giveaway winners! Woohoo!  No, really, it’s pretty fun, you should try it. OK, in all seriousness, I asked you all last week “What your favorite thing about blogging is,” and it was so great to read all your answers, and then I realized I forgot to answer my own question! Guess it didn’t matter since I couldn’t win my own giveaway anyways! 😉 So my answer, in short, which is pretty similar to most of you is that I love all of the amazing people I have met through blogging who have inspired, encouraged, supported me throughout this past year. Not only have you pushed me to be more creative with my photography, bow making, and recipes, but you’ve turned all these hobbies of mine into passions and you’ve helped me work through the rough times and smiled with me through the good times!  So again, I THANK YOU, my readers, for continuing to read this bloggity blog of mine! And wow, 725 comments, that just blows my mind!
