Blog Anniversary + Season’s Giving Blog Hop & Giveaways!

Happy New Year! Every January 1st I greet you with a full heart, thankful for a new day that marks in so many ways a new beginning, not only for a new year but also for new projects and personal goals. Today also marks a special significance in my calendar because this month I celebrate my Blog Anniversary! It’s been 3 years since I first had the courage to write my first post. I’ve grown so much creatively that all I can do is share my joy and gratitude with you, my followers, with a massive celebration!
