Birthday Blogoversary Giveaway

My 26th Birthday
My 1st Blogoversary 

I decided to start blogging in February, I wanted to share my love for books with other book lovers. I had no idea what I was even doing when I started. I really didn't look into blog names, I kinda just picked something that was available and went with it. I didn't expect I would get into blogging like I have. I have enjoyed the last year of having this thing, it has been both an interesting and a fun experience.

Not only it is my blog's birthday month but it is mine as well. I will be turning 26 and I have to say I am going to miss being 25. Why? Because age 25 was my golden year and it has been a great year for me, yes I have had some downs but overall its been awesome. 

This last year I have:
Gotten to meet a few other bloggers in person; Jaimie @Two Chicks on Books, Mindy @Magical Urban Fantasy Reads, and Grace @Peace, Love, Teen Fiction
Talked to a lot of other awesome bloggers over twitter/Facebook/blog
Conversed with authors, so freaking awesome!
Found a lot of wonderful books to overflow my bookshelves
Been to some amazing events

Celebrated our 2nd anniversary of marriage and I still completely love him
I went para-gliding on a random hiking event with my sister, read about that day HERE
Took photography classes (FINALLY)
Got an awesome new camera (thanks husband)

My Blog Goals
-I would like to continue to improve my blog layout and look
-Write at least 1 review a week
-Not miss a week of my Bookography photos
-Have fun blogging
-Read for myself at times
-Don't get bogged down with "have to" books
-Stay at a comfortable pace
-Go to as many author events as I can
-Remind myself it is ok if I don't get lots of ARC

My Personal Goals
-Spend time with my husband and family
-Get better at photography: get friends to model for me
-Get house painted
-Fence in our front yard
-Start replacing some windows and doors
-Take all the personal time I need for myself
