The Picky Apple Turns 2 and a Giveaway!!

Today, this little blog of mine turns 2!!  Two years ago today, I started this blog as a food blog with a little post about cupcakes.  I reinvented the blog back in September 2009 to more accurately reflect my life: a little cooking and baking, lots of thoughts on being a mother, activities with The Littlest Apple, making my house a home, and books galore.  I couldn’t be happier with how my blog has grown!  I can’t believe it has been two years already!!  Writing this blog has been such an amazing experience thus far.  I am constantly amazed by the generosity and kind souls out there in the blog world.  I am also humbled by the number of people that read my blog in all its random glory on a regular basis.

Sometimes I wonder who is reading The Picky Apple.  I know I’ve got family reading, and there are some of you that comment on a regular basis.  But who are the rest of you?  In honor of my little blog’s birthday, I’d love to hear from you!  I know there are lots of you reading that don’t usually comment.  It would absolutely make my day if you could leave a comment to say hello and introduce yourself.  If you’ve got any questions about me or anything else, I’d love to hear them!  I’ll try my best to answer them in an upcoming post.

In honor of my blog’s birthday, I’m hosting my first giveaway!!  If if you leave a comment, you’ll be entered to win 1 of 2 $25 Amazon gift cards.  One entry per person.  I’ll select two winners randomly and announce the winners on Thursday, January 21.  I look forward to hearing from you, and thanks again for reading The Picky Apple!!

    I love the variety of topics- not all of which I can relate to just yet in my life but I am well on my way. Great to know there is a network of parents, mothers, wives and friends who can share this kind of information. Congrats on turning two!
