I am so excited! As of today, Expanding Wisdom has been in existence for 1 whole year! Last year at this time, we were telling the world that we had been born, and here we are one year later. SO much has happened, so many ideas have been discussed, and more importantly, so many relationships have been cultivated. I had no idea I would make so many new friends through the life of this blog. I would not have kept writing this year if it was not for you. There were ups and downs, fast times and slow times, joys and sorrows, months I was super inspired and months where I doubted whether I ever should have started this thing. I am truly so grateful for each you being part of this blog community! To celebrate with you and thank you properly, I wanted to share what was the best of our first year together, give you a glimpse of what is to come, and give away a few goodies!
