First Blogiversary + A GIVEAWAY

*Giveaway is closed*To celebrate their the first blogiversary, Lily & Bliss is giving away a Simplified Planner from Emily Ley! Share it to WIN it!With the teething drama over the last week and now an ear infection (found out yesterday whoopee!), I completely forgot about our first blogiversary! Yep it has been one year since I stepped away from a private family blog to launch Lily & Bliss!

Over the last year I have exposed my crazy life, shared recipes, created DIY projects and proclaimed my thoughts on parenthood.  The last 12 months have been filled with some highs, lows and plenty plenty of entertaining mom-moments. I’m humbled every day when I see the growing amount of readers that visit, comment and share. Thank you THANK YOU for your sweet words and support!

Today I’m so giddy to bring you another GIVEAWAY from my dear friend Emily Ley! HOORAY!!!

Enter giveaway for a Simplified Planner by Emily Ley on Lily & BlissToday is the first day for pre-orders on The Simplified Planer for 2013-2014!!! I’m so very proud of my friend her success with this amazing product! Last year she sold out in only three months and there has been so much anticipation for the launch of the second edition. Not only am I blessed to have Emily as a friend, I’m a lucky owner of a first edition Simplified Planner. That binder has been such a blessing in keeping my crazy life organized! The pages are filled with appointments, reminders, birthdays, sweet notes, meal plans and potential blog ideas. I’m not a pusher of this marvelous product because my friend is the creator…nope I’m just a believer and lover of any item that helps keep my life organized in a neat and pretty way!

Enter giveaway for a Simplified Planner by Emily Ley on Lily & BlissOne of you lucky readers has a chance to win a pink Simplified Planner PLUS a package of monthly tabs PLUS a sticky flag book!!! The sticky flag book is a new edition this year and one that gets my organized heart fluttering!! The flags come in some gorgeous colors that match the monthly tabs. You can attach the sticky flags to special dates to remind you of your child’s swim lessons or first ballet recital. I’ve already started a section in my planner for our family’s 2013 summer bucket list!

You have 3 ways to win this amazing giveaway by sharing it on Facebook or Instagram, tweeting the giveaway or pining it on Pinterest! Leave a comment with an item from your summer bucket list and how you shared the giveaway! Remember to leave the comment, as that will be your entry!

    Oh dear, got too excited and forgot the bucket list……. I hope to plant lots of beautiful flowers to keep our home’s curb appeal, then replant them at the new house. I also hope to keep said flowers alive throughout this process.

    Ahhh so excited about this giveaway! I posted it via Instagram!
    My summer bucket list is to thoroughly prepare myself for my trip to Ghana for the Fall 2013 Semester! This is my first time out of the country and I am so blessed with this opportunity. Preparing myself has been a challenge so far with traveling to visit family members & friends, getting shots to enter the country, and even mentally preparing myself for “culture shock”! Super excited and nervous all at the same time :)

    I am truly DYING to own one of Emily’s amazing Simplified Planners, but simply to not have the money to dish out to get one anytime soon. (Heartbreaking, I know.) So, this giveaway would be PERFECT and such a God-send! Anyway, one of my summer bucket list items is to go to at least 3 Anaheim Angels baseball games with my hubby! I love baseball games, even though baseball isn’t my favorite sport in the world. The atmosphere is just SO lovely and screams summer to me! I shared this giveaway on Facebook! (My name is Cara Howard) Thank you!!!

    My summer bucket list is to simply live, in the moment, more often. Too often we check out of real life by checking into a virtual life (hello facebook) and my goal is to step away. Take some time for my family and enjoy the time I get to spend with them.

    Happy First Blogiversary! I didn’t realize your blog was so new! I started following you in the fall and have loved all your posts. My summer bucket list is way too long, but at the top is taking my toddler to various splash pads around town and letting him splash away. He just loves the water!

    I posted this link to facebook and to pinterest. (I would post it to twitter but I don’t have a twitter account.) I am in LOVE with the Simplified Planner and ohmygoodness it would be a dream come true to have one.

    Thanks for all your encouragement and inspiration!

    Hello!!!

    I have to say that it is hard not to add the Simplified Planner on my Summer Bucket List! I have wanted one of these since January and have been waiting for this new launch! I am so excited!
    I pinned this page…Instagramed it…Put it on Facebook…and Tweeted about it! :)

    My main thing on my Summer Bucket List would have to be my Missions Trip to Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic! I have never been out of the country, besides Canada :) And this is something close to my heart. I have it on my bucket list because I love to travel and this will help me cross more of my traveling adventures yet to come off of my Life Bucket List.
    Thank you!!!
