Blogaversary Contest

I can't believe it's been a year since I started Carter's Corner. Blogging is something that I never thought I would do. Ever. I mean... I'm boring. Who would actually be interested in reading anything I have to say? But, I was a victim of peer pressure, like so many are. All my friends were doing it, so why wasn't I? Once I started, I immediately liked it. I didn't care who else was reading it. I was. It was for me. It was all mine and I could say and write whatever I wanted. Now, here we are one year later, and I just love looking back on the different events that happened in our life. In Carter's life.

I hope to be around a lot longer. I hope to eventually change the name of the blog with baby #2 {though not anytime soon!! I said eventually, people!} I hope that you will continue to join me in this crazy thing we call life. I hope that I will continue to have followers {up to 45... yay!!} and over 500 hits a day. It may seem small to some, but I greatly appreciate my "measly" 500 hits on my blog, my 45 followers, and the numerous comments and emails that I receive. I LOVE IT.

So, in honor of my blogaversary, let's have a little contest! What does the winner get, you may ask? Well... you'll receive a free {single-sided} custom card design, courtesy of 9 Designs :) All you have to do is respond to this post in the comment section with your name and email address before 8:00 pm EST on Sunday, April 26th. I will then put everyone in the True Random Generator and allow it to select a winner! You can use the card design for announcements, birthday invitations, or whatever else you would like! {Don't forget... Mother's Day is coming up ;) } It can be used now or saved for later. I hope people decide to enter!

Happy Blogaversary.... to meeeeeee! Thanks so much for everything over the last year. xoxo

Happy Blogaversary! I would love one of your wonderful designs for Jack's birth announcements or Christening invites. Might as well continue the trend since you did my wedding stuff :)

Happy Blogaversary! I first saw your work on The Knot and then had you do all of my wedding invites and stationary, they were all so beautiful and everyone loved them. While you were doing my wedding you also had Carter and I just loved seeing all the pics of the little guy so I've followed your blog ever since, watching him grow up (so quickly).
Enjoy the beautiful weekend weather.

Happy Blogaversary! I feel like I know you after reading your blogs. I didn't start reading "religiously", lol, until a couple of months ago but I used to enjoy your comments on the Nest or I guess its the Bump now..you inspired me to start my own blog a couple of weeks ago. For no other reason then to track how quickly time flies with a child now!

I love your blog. I love seeing Carter grow and him turning into a little "man" since him and my son are so close in age. I also love your etsy store(I am thinking about ordering for Oliver's first b-day). Keep up the great blogging!
