Happy blogiversary to this little blog o'mine! Six years. I've been blogging for six years. Can it really be that long? Same thing I say about my kids ... can they really be that old already?
I started blogging when Kayla was 2 years and 8 months old. Aww look at her back then!
And look at her now:
She'll be 9 this summer. One more year of the single digit birthday. That doesn't seem possible!
I've met some wonderful people through blogging - and even some "IRL". Although a lot of the people I 'met' the first couple of years don't seem to be blogging anymore; I often wonder what happened to them. Also seems most of us have migrated over to FB!
What's a blogiversary without a giveaway, right? I've been thinking about my post yesterday and the NDSS's challenge to "Do Something Extra" for World Down Syndrome Day.
I finally figured out what I'm going to do to celebrate individuals with Down syndrome (besides going to Kayla's school and talking with her class!).
My giveaway will be from the businesses of two individuals who have Down syndrome. One winner (picked on 3/21) will win a set of cards from Kardz by Kenz and another winner will receive a pendant from KK Glass Art. I bought a pendant from her booth this past summer at the NDSC convention and get so many comments on it!
But that's not all.
For doing something extra I will be making a donation to the Plus 15 campaign, because on Mar 21 my donation will be matched 3:1.
And you all are going to help me make that donation ... or the amount anyway! I will donate a dollar for every comment left on this post. So if I get 25, then my $25 donation will turn into $100.
Since this is about World Down Syndrome Day I'd love it if your comment would include something about Down syndrome ... like if your perception of Ds has changed (hopefully for the positive!) since reading my blog and "knowing" Kayla. Or what you might have learned from us. If you've been a long-time reader I'd love to know if you're still lurking/reading! And if you're a newer reader I'd love to know how you found my blog! Or if you have any questions for me, please feel free to ask!
So, happy blogiversary and happy World Down Syndrome Day.
Now, get to commenting! :-)
