Blogiversary! {and a Giveaway!}

Happy 1st Blogiversary 
Purple Monkey!!

i really really can not believe that it's already been one year since I started this blog.
what started out as a focus for art and music on the jersey shore has turned into an inspirational art, music, cooking, personal blog!  
so so much has happened in the last year, it's unbelievable.
before this, i had a few personal blogs that no one read
but they never lasted.
so i am truly surprised that we've made it to a year!
but honestly, this blog wouldn't be here without...

reading all of your sweet comments completely makes my day.  
i have made some amazing friends here on this blog.
not even kidding, i fully expect a lot of you guys to continue being my friends for a very long time.
i can only hope that one day we can all have a huge blog meet up! 
{i'll bake the cake}

in honor of making it to a year,
i have TWO very special giveaways lined up for this week.

the first one is so awesome!  you're all gonna love it!

  2. I love giveaways! I always read your posts, but now I'm actually a follower. My fave quote is
