Happy Birthday

to the Colby Blog. I started this blog for a few reasons and the 1st month or 2 of posts were silly. I really didn't understand exactly what a blog was, boy, how that has changed.
Because of this blog I have found a way to keep in touch with some old friends. I have been able to see my cousins families grow. I have found new friends. I have grown as a person and as a mother. Everyday was full of mundane tasks, me walking around in a fog of laundry, dusting, vacuuming, and breakfast and lunch dishes.

Now, I believe, because of this blog, I am constantly thinking about things to put on here, things to remember, to journal, to capture. I am taking time to write down the things that we do as a family, things that inspire me, things that make me happy, and feelings that I don't want to forget. All thanks to this blog.

SO...Happy Birthday Blog.
You make me a happier person and hopefully make someone else happy when they read you!!

Now I really want to give something away. I asked opinions and I have decided on a Valentines Heart wreath.
(the image was "borrowed" from another site) I didn't make this one, but I am going to make it just for the winner.

**And girls that are in my craft club. This is one of our projects for Febuary. So if you win, I will make you an apron or a bag, your choice.**

I am going to write down a # right now. 1-50.
Leave a comment with your guess of my #. I am going to give you until Saturday morning to guess. Then I will post the winner this weekend. I am going to St. George to stay with my sis, so she will be there validate the #.

I am so excited, are you guys excited???
