A Happy Pink Saturday and A Blogiversary

Hello my sweet Friends~
"Happy Pink Saturday" I have a very big day coming up tomorrow; my one year Blogiversary! I can hardly believe it! Considering I have never taken a computer course and just got up the nerve to even go near the computer in 2002, I still sometimes cannot believe I'm actually doing this!
What a wonderful past time and opportunity it has been to 'meet' you all. You have all brought me so much joy with your friendship and sweet comments.

When I decided to take the plunge and start my own blog I was so nervous and I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I just took a leap of faith and asked God to help me through it. And here I am today, one year later!
I was hoping for a vehicle in which I could express myself and I have found that blogging helps me to do that. And I'm pleased that so many of you have shared that you actually enjoy my blog! Who would have thought? And not only have I started this blog, but I have two others as well! Surprised? Well, so am I!

"Spirit Song" is a blog that I started a few months ago to share my testimony and hopefully encourage others who are going through a difficult situation with their health or family.

Another blog which I started just recently is one that I've been wanting to have ever since I began blogging a year ago. It is a Christmas blog called, "Christmas Pudding."
You can visit it by clicking on this link~
Anyone who knows me would not be at all surprised about the Christmas blog because everyone has always teased me about having the music playing in November and the Christmas tree up! But more and more, I see people putting their trees up just as early as me now. Sometimes my next door neighbor even beats me to it!
Anyway, to get back to my Blogiversary......
I am celebrating for two very good reasons; one year of blogging and 100 plus Followers! Again, who would have thought?
In appreciation for all your wonderful support and friendship over the past year, I am having another Giveaway to celebrate! In keeping with my love of Christmas, since the season is not far off, and because it is Pink Saturday, I am giving away this darling little pink ornament.
This little snowman angel has a sparkly scarf wrapped around his neck and he holds a scarf which reads "Love" across his belly. The pink ball is covered with little snowflakes; really adorable! Perfect for your Christmas tree or a wreath!
If you would like to enter my Giveaway then please leave me a comment on this post stating you would like to. If you are a Follower on this blog or my Christmas Pudding blog, you will get another chance to win. I have posted about the Giveaway on Christmas Pudding as well as this one.
If you post about the Giveaway with a link back to me, you will get yet another chance to win. I will be doing the draw on the 23rd of October and will announce the name of the winner on my Pink Saturday post on the 24th.
Thank you for making my blogging experience so much fun. I love you all and God bless you!
Before I go, I would like to introduce to you a new friend I 'met' last week on Pink Saturday. Gwen of "A Charming Home" is as charming as her blog implies and I hope you will take a few moments to go visit her. She creates the most wonderful jewelery and I know she would love to 'meet' you!
Then please go visit Beverly and all the other pinkies today by clicking on the link or the Pink Saturday button on my sidebar. I hope you all have a fantastic pink weekend!

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi
