1 Year Blog Anniversary and 200 Posts!

I started this blog one year ago today, and in the past 365 days, I've written 200 posts. In honor of both milestones, I've put together this fun giveaway:
A copy of Julie & Julia, Gimlet mix (once you read Julie & Julia, you'll understand why I've included this), a very preppy frying pan, and a "Book Notes" book. Its very cute, almost like a journal to keep track of books you've read. I really enjoyed Julie & Julia and thought that with the movie coming out this summer, a cooking themed giveaway was in order!

To enter, please leave a comment on this post. I will draw a name next Monday, so entries must be in by midnight on Sunday, July 5th.

This last year has brought me so much joy! I really love writing this blog, and I am so flattered that I have so many readers! Thank you for a great year and good luck!
