I've got some good news, friends....drum roll please.....
Ok, ok, soooo we are technically celebrating Swag On, Momma's One and a half year birthday.
I planned on celebrating on SOM's actual one year "blogiversary" (ha, so cheesy a word!) back in mid-January, but then, I suddenly landed myself in the hospital with a blood clot. Besides that painful/scary ordeal, I was pregnant and in my first trimester and felt like crap. Big time. So, with the addition of the blood clot, any personal plans and ambitions went to pot for a few weeks. Hence, I missed it the silly rite of passage for bloggers: The Blogiversary.
But! August marks a year and a half of SOM; why not still celebrate!?

Also, I've been so honored and humbled to share the words of so many amazing guest-posters. Many stories have brought me to tears, or made me laugh till I cried, or just choked me up with happiness. (Can you tell I'm a crier? Ha!) I am grateful and awed by these ladies who have shared their hearts with us, as well as your incredible responses through comments, "Likes" and "Shares." I am excited to re-share some of these guest-posts again, in case you missed them the first time around!
Plus, the support and love you've shown me when I share my thoughts with you has meant the world. The work and time I've put into this blog has been so worthwhile, even though I was freakin' intimidated to start this thingy. And, I plan to continue to bring you great content, share your stories, and tell some of my own! It brings me a lot of joy to connect with you. :)
SO, let's party it up this week, smash my laptop into a chocolate cake (that's the norm for first birthdays, right?) and I'll give away some swag! :) There will be a new post every day this week through Friday, (don't worry, they will be short, haha) so keep checkin back! (Unless my water breaks and I end up in the hospital birthing a baby...then, we'll shoot for the two year Blogiversary instead. Ha!)
