anniversary giveaway from oh, hello friend

Hey friends, I have been keeping a little secret from you all week. Did you know that one year ago this week I started Cloudy Day Gray? I feel beyond blessed to have spent a year creating, sharing, and bringing awareness to pediatric organ donation with all of you. Thank you for being so kind. Thank you for helping me through the hardest moments of my life. Thank you for encouraging my creativity.

I honestly felt lost and lonely after returning from NYC. I had never been a stay-at-home mom, I was without friends and family, and had just experienced four months of living in a traumatic (yet beautiful... but you know what I mean) environment.

Without this blog, I most certainly would have stepped off the deep end. I needed a routine, I needed to have goals pushing me forward, and I needed most of all to talk about what happened with Matilda. So when I say thank you for this year, I really, REALLY mean it.

And I want to give extra props to my BFF Melanie for answering my countless questions, telling me the honest truth, and supporting me one hundred percent. Without Mel, I would not have had my projects featured on Martha Stewart, Oh Happy Day, or Apartment Therapy.

Other highlights of my year include: interviews with, Small Fry, Freshly Picked, With Heart, and several others; the time I threw a party for Alt Summit; and, of course, making friends with bloggers I have admired for years.

In fact, my dear friend Danni of Oh, Hello Friend, is offering a $100 giveaway to her online shop for one lucky Cloudy Day Gray reader!!! She really has the best style and curates the most beautiful things. I picked some of my favorites featured below, but really, I made a wish list that consisted of everything she sells. All you have to do is leave a comment telling me what you want to see more of from Cloudy Day Gray in the coming year. But really any comment will be fine. Follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and/or Twitter, and earn bonus entries for each one (make sure to let me know your username). This giveaway will close on March 14th and the winner (chosen randomly) will be notified by email.

Seriously, thank you and good luck!
