Parade Magazine and A Blog Anniversary

March 4, 2014



I am so excited! It's a big week here at Exquisitely Unremarkable and I can't wait to tell you why!


First of all, it was during this week, last March, that I hit the publish button on my first post, so this week marks my one year blog anniversary! Woo Hoo! I actually cannot believe it, can you? My goodness, that was a fast year!

I would like to thank everyone who has come by to read my posts. I am humbled and honored by each and every visit, comment and feature. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

My second bit of exciting news is that I am now a contributor at Parade Magazine and, very coincidentally, my first article is there today! For a writer, it's a thrilling way to spend an anniversary, that's for sure!

    1. Diane, I almost had to pinch myself today when I saw my words on Parade! I also cannot believe that I have been blogging for a year. I have to say, it was time well spent and meeting other bloggers, like yourself, is a perk I never imagined! Thanks for all of your kind words...and those gorgeous and inspiring bedtime posts on Facebook! :)
