It's hard to believe that in 2 years I have gone through the heartache of my infertility struggles, got engaged and then a week later found out I was pregnant. There were times I loved being pregnant and times I felt like I was failing and then there was the unexpected birth. And now I have a beautiful baby girl and the best job in the world. It really is true that life can change completely in a few short years...
Given that my blog is having a birthday I figured it was fitting that we have an online party to celebrate. Unfortunately there wont be any cake, but there will be presents and I'm giving them to YOU!
To say thankyou to you all for reading I have teamed up with some wonderful businesses and put together a MASSIVE anniversary giveaway. There are 27 prizes for 27 lucky winners.
