*This giveaway has ended. Congratulations to the Winner, Martha E.*
Well friends, today is kind of a big day for Inspired by Charm, me, and you as well. This post is IBC’s 1000th post! Can you even believe that? I certainly can’t. A few weeks ago a friend and fellow blogger announced she had reached her 1,000 mark, so I thought I would check to see how close I was to mine. Good thing I checked when I did because I was at 989 posts.
I started this blog on January 4, 2009. That’s a little over five years ago. And through those years so many things have happened and changed both here on IBC and in my own life. Five years ago I bought a B&B and opened a gift shoppe. Now that adventure is closed, I’m able to live a dream I never really knew I had of being a full-time Lifestyle Blogger. Even though I’m still trying to figure out how to live my best possible life day-to-day, when it comes to major decisions in my life, I’ve always left my heart open. And somehow I’ve always found clarity and the right path to follow. It’s pretty amazing.
Anyway, I won’t bore you with all of that. I did. however, want to say thank you for all of your support over these past five years and 1,000 posts. Your comments, emails, likes, shares, pins, etc. are so immensely appreciated. They allow me to continue to do what I do and share it all with you. So thank you. A million times over, thank you!
To show my appreciation, I thought I would do an epic giveaway. Probably the biggest I’ve ever done on IBC. But before we get to that, I thought it would be fun to share my Top Five favorite posts from IBC. I’ve selected five for each of the following categories: Cooking / Baking, Home Decor, and DIY! It will be a little walk down memory lane.
Even if some of my older posts are cringe-worthy, it’s fun to look back. It’s a reflection on how much we’ve all grown and changed in lots of wonderful ways.
Also, if you haven’t yet, be sure to sign up for the IBC email list. You can do so via the sidebar or at the end of every post. In the next week or two I’m going to be publishing a weekly newsletter with exclusive content, giveaways, etc. You don’t want to miss it.
Anyway, on to the giveaway! As you gathered from the post title, I’m giving away and iPad Air! Pretty sweet, right?And, as an added bonus, I’m throwing in two fun IBC treats. First, You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero (because it’s an incredibly motivating read). Second, the movie Teen Witch (because I’ve been totally obsessed with it since I was a tween and think everyone in the world should see it.)
I’ll purchase the iPad Air 16GB from the Apple store once the winner is selected (Yep, this is coming straight out of my own pocket.). The winner can decide if she or he would like the Space Gray or Silver. The movie and book will come straight from my house and I may even throw in a few other goodies!
