It's My Blogiversary!

I can't believe it's been a year. It kinda sunk up on me. But, it's here! It's my Blogiversary!!! I think it's nice that it coincides with the first day of Fall, since Fall is my favorite season. So much has happened this year, and some of you have been with me from the very beginning. In honor of my blogiversary, here is a link back to the post that started it all.(FIRST POST.) I would like to steal, um I mean borrow an idea from another bloggy friend of mine, Marsha. To celebrate my blogiversary, I'd like to give You a present. So, for anyone who reads my blog, please leave me a comment telling me what brought you by my blog and what keeps you coming back. Do you have a favorite topic or post? Please let me know, I really am interested. I hope everyone has a wonderful first day of Fall. Love Y'all ~Blessings!

Just a few decorations I put out this weekend. I love the mums! Sissy thinks the scarecrows are her new dolls. The wreath is special, because my mom and I made it together almost ten years ago. I put it to the side because I wanted to keep the hanging basket on my front door that my sister helped me pick out. I did the arrangement myself. Oh, and this is my first year to have a ghost pumpkin and a regular pumpkin. All I need now are corn stalks for my lamp post. I bought a Harvest Yankee Candle for the house, this weekend. And I highly recommend them. So, Yummy! I can't wait to see what y'all have to share!

Happy Blogiversary!
How I found your blog? I have no idea, but I found it immediately after I started blogging. I keep coming back because I like you. You are authentic, caring, compassionate and love the Lord. Who wouldn't want to keep visiting :)

I found your blog through Demetria's :) As you know, we went to church together and I started blogging about the same time as several other women in my class...

I was excited to get to know her sister in law!

Tiffany said...

Ashley- you are so sweet! Thank you. You just made my day!

Christy- I found you through D too! And I loved your writing- right away! You're so funny and a great story teller.

Hi Tiffany!
Happy Blogiversary!! It's so nice to meet you and see your blog! I am so impressed with your heartfelt honesty and the fact that you are willing to help others with your life story. Anything we can do to help others is what it's all about! My husband was abused as a child by a distant relative which changed his life. The Lord had also made his life a new one. I have a blog list of Blogs of Insight and Understanding, may I put your blog on that list? If you prefer not, I understand completely! Let me know.
Thank you so much for stopping by and entering my giveaway! It's such an honor to meet you!
Hugs, Sherry

I love your blog- It is very refreshing to read your thoughts and the goings on in your life. I have always known that you are something special, more than a friend, more than a are my mentor and guide to a better tomorrow. You are so real and I love that about you and I love that you are teaching to have your realness. I love you so much and I am so blessed and proud you are in my life. Next to your realness, my favorite thing about you is that you never fail to give God the Glory for his many blessings. God truly remains at the center of who you are and it shows in all that you do.
Oh and you are just additive and that make me come back are like birthday cake honey, I can't ever get enough!
Your Sister

Happy Blogiversary!

I found you because you were kind enough to check out my blog after your hubby told you I had one.

I am so thrilled at this chance to "meet" you and get to know you! I couldn't be happier to see that my dear friend chose such a devoted, lovely, and caring Christian woman to share his life with.

My only wish is that someday we'll get the chance to meet in the real world. Here's hoping! :o)

Tiffany said...

M.C.--Hon I love you too! And I'm so glad we're sisters. So glad. I love that we can be real with each other and encourage each other to step out and take chances, because life is to short. I love being around you because you fill my life with laughter. And I need not to be so serious sometimes. I'm ser-rus bout when we move home- I gonna be all up in your koolaid, you'll be like go home girl. You'll be wanting to get rid of me. hee-hee! No- really, I love You!

Rach- I hope we get that chance, too. For now, it's great getting to know you through your writing.

Hey Tiffany,

Congratulations on your blogiversary! It's not only your true southern hospitality that keeps me coming back, but your sincere desire to become more like Christ each day. I recently read your personal testimony (bless you for your courageousness), and I discovered we shared much in common. Your love for your husband and children are such an encouragement and inspiration.

Ashley said...

I found you through Demetria's blog, but I had been hearing about "Hugh and Tiffany" for a LONG time from my husband. I keep coming back because I just enjoy observing your life as a mom. You treasure your calling and that is admirable to me :o)

Mary Clair Ford said...

I will always share my kool aid with you! Never, ever will I get sick of you. We keep all flavors around here and would love to increase our favorite flavor inventory with you!

I love you man!

Happy Blogiversary!

I can't even remember what first brought me here, but I keep coming back because of your love for our Lord and the Spirit that is in you. Plus I just like you!!

You are encouraging also when you leave comments on my blog. You are genuine and willing to be real about your life...

Marsha said...

Happy Blogoversary, my friend! I don't even remember how we met out there in the blogosphere, but I sure am glad we have!

I think there are several things that have stuck with me...the first being the struggle you went through the first of the year regarding your Mom's death and all the mayhem that ensued later when it was time to go sort through things. That was such a difficult time for you and I can remember my heart just breaking for you.

I've also really appreciated your vulnerablity and willingness to share your testimony with all of us. That's a very personal thing, but you were willing to share your life with us for the glory of God and Him alone.

And then there were the pictures from your daughter's birthday party. Those were just adorable! Loved those.

Have a blessed week, my friend.

Marsha said...

Okay, I'm a posting imposter. I talked with Denise - a.k.a. Shortybear today and I was trying to fill her in on whats going on with our friends. I told her you were having a blogoversary give away and she wanted me to sign her up! So, this one is for our friend Denise!

Kimberly said...

Happy, Happy Blogiversary! did we meet? I honestly can't remember. :) But what keeps me coming back? Your SINCERE love for your Father in heaven, for your husband, for your children, and for your friends. Your posts are honest and such a blessing to read. So no matter how it is I found you, I am glad I did!
