Happy Anniversary to Me!!

Happy Anniversary to me! I can't believe it, but just one year ago today I jumped head first into this crazy world of blogging. and I'm so...happy I did.
Honestly, it has been nothing but good.
I have so much more I'd like to write about it but
since my time is limited tonight, I'll save that for tomorrow.
I am hosting a drawing in celebration of this first year for a subscription for the above magazine.
Please leave a comment and let me know what you enjoy most about my blog-I'm just curious about what made you become a follower in the first place.  If you are not a follower, please join and leave a comment, and I will enter your name also!
I'll be back to chat more tomorrow.



  1. Congratulations! It's fun to celebrate a milestone.
    I like your blog, and decided to follow because there is always something a little different in your posts. You write a little about your life, some about your family and some about your projects. I guess that the variety (and the just-plain-niceness)in your posts keep me coming back!

  2. Hi Kimberly, Congrats on your blog-aversary.... Since I don't participate in giveaways, you don't have to add me to your list. BUT--I did want to tell you that I always love reading your blog. I especially love it when you post pictures of your travels and new home in that gorgeous area of our world.

  3. We are so glad you started blogging, too!
    What a great give away. A subscription to this wonderful magazine, wow!
    Congrautlation Kimberly!
    Here's to a great blog and many more years to come. **clink clink**

  4. Wow,I think my brain almost hurt,what made me be a follower? I'm thinking back to the first time I found you and I can remember how cute you were decorating your cabin. Then you were doing some sewing and then you took me on a sight seeing trip. I truly think it is the sharing of your life that kept me coming back. Now when I see you have posted it is like visiting a dear friend. I get excited to see what you have to share today.

    So congrats on your first year!! I look forward to many more!

  5. Congratulations on your first year anniversary...Your blog is such a joy to all of us.....

  6. Kimberly - I can't remember NOT following your blog! I love that you share your life with us!

    Congratulations, my friend!

  7. What not to like!... I enjoy seeing all the different places you've been and for sharing your journey with us!

  8. I always enjoy seeing your vintage sorts of decor.

    Happy blogiversary!!

  9. I love reading your blog Kimberly, first because you are another Canadian blogger, next because you live in a beautiful part of our province and I love to see the photos from there, then because you are adventurous and are spending time in the Yukon and share fascinating pictures from there. I'd love a subscription to that magazine to get great ideas for in and around the home. Congrats on a whole year of fantastic blogging.

  10. Happy Anniversary to you. Yes, blogging is a whole new world! I love it too.

  11. Happy Anniversary...Wow that year flew by!

    I enjoy 'You'! You are always so real and are happy to share the beauty in your world with your lovely photos and words.

    Thank you for being a part of our blog family! xo

  12. You are living an interesting life...yes! I like the difference from my own corner with just enough recognizable for me to hook onto. And you're real. I think. You may actually be a 95-year-old man, but I don't think so. =D

    Happy blogging and congrats on a great first year!!

  13. Congratulations!!!! It's hard to pick one thing about your blog that I love but here goes...I love your nature pictures, I love the fact that you live North and share it with me as I miss it, I love your decorating, your lifestyle and your personality is the sweetest!
    Also, your side trips and thrift finds...I know there's more too!
    Thanks for the drawing. I've been think ing of subscribing to that magazine ever since you introduced me to it when you posted about that issue above. I'll wait now in case I win one!
    Have a great blogaversary!

  14. Congratulations! I like everything about your blog, but I especially love all the pictures you post of the beautiful scenery and wildlife there where you live.

  15. Congrats on your anniversary! I've been following a long time. I'm not sure now, but I think I started following in part because I enjoyed the photos from your part of the world and that your name is the same as my daughter! :D I enjoy your blog because you have such interesting posts and I love seeing the photos you also share with us.
    Have a nice day and weekend!!

  16. Congratulations on one year! I like that your blog is varied -- you give us peeks at different aspects of your life. Thank you for sharing it all with us!

  17. Big congrats!!! Isn't it fun! Blogging has changed my whole personality (for the good)
    I must say that the black bear was what first drawed me to your blog.... Since then, I have enjoyed the variety of topic that you bring to the blogging world. I always enjoy my visits here..
    Have a super great day

  18. Kimberly -- I came to your blog for the first time when we were matched up for apron swap. Enjoyed that first visit AND every visit since. You are a dear and that comes thru in your posts. Glad you are willing to share a slice of your life with us :)


  19. Happy First Anniversary Kimberly! I can't remember where I saw your blog, maybe from a comment at Pondside or Oakview Cottage, but I started following you right away. I always enjoy your posts and I even one a little giveaway last year. I love this magazine and have the spring and summer issues. It is a beautiful mag with no ads. I'd love the chance to win a subscription. Thanks so much and blessings to you for another year of blogging. Hugs, Pam
