Thank you:

May 4, 2012

Sorry for the super cheesy photo, I was kind of in a rush :) As reader appreciation week comes to a close, I just wanted to say from the bottom of my heart - thank you for reading this blog. 5 years ago I started a blog because my friends at school had one and they told me to start one. (thank you Curtis & Mayra!) Then shortly after that, I started oh, hello friend. Whether you're a more recent reader or you've been reading since this blog first started - thank you. Thanks for all sticking with me through the years, the comments you've left, the support you've shown and sharing in our journey of engagement, marriage, and now a house! I know sometimes content can get old but you're still here! I know sometimes talking about religion/beliefs can get tiring but thanks for being open to that. I am really blessed and amazed at what a supportive and wonderful blog community we have here, and really, this blog wouldn't be what it is without you guys, the readers!

Some other notes, I got a couple requests for tutorials - I tried to do a tutorial for creating buttons/graphics using an online photo editor (for those who don't have illustrator, which is what I use) but it wasn't working out so well. I'll try again soon! I did have a couple other things planned (like free downloads) but I just ran out of time :/ I'll try to do a follow up post on this too! I've been receiving some emails about rafflecopter not working - so sorry about that! It's a great (free) service but I don't know how the inner-workings for this sort of thing works, I have tried emailing their customer service but I think it's only one guy who made it or something ;) One thing to try - logging out and logging back in (upper right hand corner box) Also have heard the paypal button is not working. Be sure you are clicking it directly from the blog and not from a reader or email. I'd also suggest trying it a different web browser. Just let me know if you have any questions.

So in case this week has been one big jumbled confusion to you, here is a list of all the deals/giveaways that happened this week:

#1 - $100 gift card giveaway to The Wanderlust
#2 - Pair of Clogs from Lotta from Stockholm
#3 - $100 gift card giveaway to Madewell
#4 - Instax Camera Package Giveaway
#5 - $100 gift card giveaway to Jetblue

#1 - Pocket watch deal - $15
#2 - oh, hello friend favorites pack #1 - $15
#3 - Message Rubber Stamp - $15
#4 - oh, hello friend favorites pack #2 - $25
#5 - Accessories Pack - $25

Deals are still open and will end today. Giveaways all end next week so you can still enter!  Don't forget to check out the reader buttons and fill out the "getting to know you" survey (I am making my way through the entries!)

Well friends, it is Friday once again! This weekend is jam-packed for us, I'm excited to be hanging with friends and spending 24/7 with my husband! Next week will be crazy busy packaging up all the orders received during this week, so posts may be here and there. What are your weekend plans? I truly hope you enjoyed Reader Appreciation Week, words really fail to express how thankful I am for you all. Have a beautiful weekend, dear friends.
