This year has been a year of firsts for me..many firsts. As I'm coming up on a year here in AZ I look back and see many firsts..
~Last night was my first official "gathering" at my house. This was the first time I've had multiple families from here in AZ over at my house. In Washington this was something I did maybe 3 plus times a week! I can't believe its been over a year since I invited a few people over to hang out. Crazy, it felt good to entertain again, to let my new girlfriends and their families come relax by the pool with food and laughs. These are also the same gf's that we will be traveling to Mexico with in June..more "entertaining" photos to follow on that one for sure:)
~Today was the first over 100 degree day of the year, I have now officially spent all 4 seasons here in AZ..that is a huge first for the small town Amber.
~Last night I let the cat out of the bag and the new gf's know about my blog..this was a little hard for me. My blog is personal, the people that visit it are close and know me best, they are also fellow bloggers/crafters/general Amberish type people. If you are not accustomed to this side of me..well you might think me wierdish, but hey love me or hate me I am what I am:) And I think the new gf's will think I'm even cooler than before:)
~First give away..So I have noticed on many crafty type blogs the ladies do "give-aways". This has many purposes, to increase traffic on your blog, to put your art (or something like art) out there and to have people leave lots of great comments on your blog. I like the "lots of great comments on my blog" reason. So leave a comment and on Friday I will randomly draw a name and the winner gets my new fabulous Tres Birds house collage. I guess if only like 4 of you comment then your chances are really good:) Comment away!
