A Milestone

This past April marked my five year blog anniversary.
I do wish I didn't delete my first blog, Black Rooster Cottage, so I could
go back and see what I wrote about then. That would be fun.

It was a whole new ballgame when we moved to Sweet Home Alabama 
so I changed my name and never looked back.

 I've been through the whole emotional roller coaster of loving it, wanting to quit because really, who cares what I do, then saying, who cares what anyone thinks because I blog for the love of writing
and sharing my thoughts and sharing things that make me happy.

I have made some very wonderful friends through blogging that share 
the same love of Vintage, Country and the South and I hope that
someday, I can meet every single one in person.

I'm always trying to improve my photography and content but
make sure to remain me in thought and style.

So, I have to say this.....

To celebrate this little milestone,
I am working on a couple of give-away's.
One for the locals and one to my friends that don't live within 
driving distance.

My next post will have all the details on how to enter
and what's on the table.

Now, back to the drawing board!


  1. Happy Blog Anniversary!! I love your blog!!!


  2. Writing for YOU is the most important thing. I began blogging just a few short months ago. Sometimes, I wish I had more followers. Then, I remember I am writing and photographing and decorating so that I have an outlet for my creativity. Followers/friends are an added benefit!
    Happy Bloggyversary!
