Blogiversary Gratitude

This past December Sober Julie Doing Life celebrated it’s 1st Blogiversary.

I do love a good celebration and so I began what would be a month of giveaways from fantastic companies! I had never been a giveaway blog but if I could give back to my readers I wanted to. The following companies were kind enough to participate in the Blogiversary Celebration by providing giveaway products:

Corel Software

Kodak Canada

IronKids Gummies & Adult Essentials Gummies Vitamins

Young Drivers of Canada

ConAgara Foods

I was fortunate enough to get some amazing writers to guest post, thank you so much to my friends:

Ellie – One Crafty Mother

Jill – Scary Mommy

Nicole – By Word of Mouth Musings

Heather – The Extraordinary Ordinary

Alexandra – Good Day Regular People

As a final hurrah on December 3rd I held a #Blogiversary TweetUp for any and all of my blogging friends who could attend.

I began planning this on short notice and I was so grateful when Alice Fazooli’s in Vaughan kindly offered to host the event!!!

This was truly a big deal, have you ever been to Alice Fazooli’s??

The atmosphere is beautiful and the food is to-die-for!!!!

Arriving on the day of the event I was met by Christian, who is an amazing gentleman to work with! He truly made throwing an event a breeze. You can find Christian on Twitter as @FazooliBarMan.

Some wonderful companies jumped on board for the Blogiversary Tweet Up and provided some awesome prizes.

Thank you to

As I said, the atmosphere was beautiful, the staff welcoming and the food was delicious and Alice Fazooli’s was so much more generous than I had expected!

I was touched by my friends who joined me in celebrating, having children with us all just seemed to round it out properly. I didn’t manage to get a good shot of all of the people at the Blogiversary but here are a few to give an idea….

In the end I felt we did a fantastic job of partying for a month, there was such a huge showing of support my heart was full.

Thank you to everyone who reads my blog……I cannot wait to see what 2012 will bring!
