Belated Birthday Bash!


Better late than never , but over a week ago when I found myself having to take a break, BVT and myself both aged 1 year πŸ˜‰ So today I am celebrating each of you who have made this year one that I will not forget!

What This Year Has Meant

When I first started this blog, it was a frightening time. Opening up to others and posting my thoughts can be challenging. I struggled to even share a review on Amazon or Goodreads. And I certainly had no idea what this journey would entail.

But as fate would have it, I have an amazing nonhusband who saw my passion and pushed me to take the leap. Since that time, I have discovered that BVT would soon become something more than just a blog. It quickly grew into an outlet and second home. I could never have been prepared for the amount of support and friendship that awaited me. Each of you have provided positive feedback and encouragement. You have listened when I needed an ear and you have taken time to know me and reach out when I was unwell. Each day has been filled with a newfound happiness that I have drawn strength from, even on the hardest of days. Truth be told, it is each of you who make this blog successful and all that I want it to be.

Thank You ❀


In order to thank you for all you have given me this last year, I am hosting a small giveaway. I have 2 drawings. One is for a $15 e-gift card to Teavana, which can also be used at Starbucks (unfortunately, this is open in the US only). The second is for up to $15 US dollars to spend on the book of your choice with Book Depository or Amazon which is open internationally to anyone that Book Depository ships to. Both giveaways are open for 1 week.
