My 1st Blogoversary

Julia's Journal is officially 1 year old! :) Happy birthday to my little blog! :D
It's been a wild ride this past year - me growing up, sharing my world with all of you... it's been precious. I'm so glad I started this blog. I've met such lovely young women through blogging, and I've even had the privilege of meeting some of them in person.
Blogging has broadened my world, given me an outlet to share about all sorts of things, enlightened, encouraged, uplifted, and inspired me.
If you have enjoyed my blog in the least in this past year, (that includes today!) would you consider leaving me a comment on this special, one of a kind post? I'd love to hear from you.
Love & Hugs,


  1. Yay! I'm first :) (at least I think I am...I wouldn't know -- you moderate your comments...forgot that :)

    Anyway, Happy, happy, happy Blogoversary, Julia!

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. It was a blessing. :) Hope you have another great, inspiring, wonder-filled, and God-filled year of blogging! :)
