One year ago from today, I launched The Love Nerds with a short post called Working Towards a Healthy Head. It was the first day of my medical leave from teaching. I was feeling uncertain about my future. I loved working with students, but I couldn’t sustain a career that lead to daily migraines. My husband and I made a choice a year ago to put my health first and pursue other dreams. Money has been tighter, but I have never regretted it. Since last year, the blog has grown more than I could imagine, I have met fabulous other bloggers and joined supportive communities, I worked my first wedding as a coordinator, and I opened my Etsy shop. So much to celebrate!
And I am so thankful for working with such fabulous companies like Pick Your Plum!! Long before my blog ever started, I shopped at PYP. I always have a stash of great items from them for last minute gifts and my entire Washi tape collection comes from them, too. I just love their products and the fabulous prices.
As the official launch of birthday celebrations, we have a Pick Your Plum Giveaway! You can enter to win a $25 gift card from Pick Your Plum! A GIFT CARD! They used to offer a box of goods – which is also amazing – but now you will get to pick out the fabulous items you want from PYP! I feel so thankful that they are helping me celebrate my First Bloggy Birthday!
The giveaway obviously starts right now and will end at 11:59pm on February 17th, which is the day of my first tutorial and what I consider the OFFICIAL launching of The Love Nerds. That is one week to enter! You can even come back everyday to tweet about it for extra entries.
