happy one year blogiversary! + giveaway (closed)

Happy first birthday Finding Joy!  I am so excited for this blogging milestone and so happy to be sharing it with you all.  Even Diego was excited enough to get dressed up for the occasion; Pedro, not so much.  It's been a great year, filled with ups and downs like any other, and it's cool to have lots of posts documenting the things that made it unique.  I started this blog because I had been in a slump, and I felt like I was missing a lot of the little things that made my life wonderful.  A year later, I think I've made progress in appreciating my daily life and not letting the good things pass me by.  As I learned from The Happiness Project "the days are long, but the years are short."  You forget to pay attention and suddenly years have gone by without you really knowing all the great things you had.  

As a big thank you to all of you who have helped make this first year of blogging so fun, I'm giving away a copy of my new favorite cook book Home Made Summer.  The book is beautiful - filled with lots of illustrations, gorgeous photos, clever writing, and of course delicious recipes.  To enter simply leave a comment on this post with some of your favorite things about summer.  Comments open until Wednesday, July 17th.  Winner announced Thursday, July 18th!  

I've got some great posts planned for you this week including some Home Made Summer sneak peeks (plus two more pretty books), a year in review version of Today I'm Thankful For, a guest post from Pedro with his favorite posts, and more!  It's going to be a partay!  
P.S. Don't forget you can follow Finding Joy on my new Facebook page here.   You can also follow me on twitterbloglovinpinterest, or goodreads!  

P.P.S Thank you so much for reading!  I wouldn't have made it this far without all of your support!
