Sweet Friends | Re-launch & Giveaway Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of celebrating the Simply for One renovation!

While I call this space home, it would be nothing without you. Your visits, faithful encouragement and kind words are what fill up these walls with love. Dear readers, thank you for sharing this journey with me.

One of the richest blessings of blogging is the people I’ve met along the way. It might seem hard to believe that lasting connection can be built through words shared on screens, that friendship can be cultivated across miles never traveled, but it’s happened for me. I’m beyond grateful for the community of writers whom I call friends.

I could fill up pages with those names and thank each one, but you’d get bored and I’d far exceed the 500-700 word count and short paragraphs that keep readers engaged [yup, that’s a thing]. So instead, let me simply say this … thank you, thank you, thank you. ♥

Today is about celebrating friendship, and there are some sweet friends who deserve a shout out. They have been faithful to cheer, pray, link arms, and stand beside me time and time again. I’ve never had the joy of hugging a single one or laughing over a cup of coffee, but truly, God has knit our hearts together.

In honor of fun and friendship, today’s GIVEAWAYS are all about my favorite things.

But first, meet my friends…

  1. I love that Abby was your first blogging friend, Tiffany, and it doesn’t surprise me that the other ladies you mentioned are important to you as well. :-) When I started blogging, I had no idea that I would make actual friends through this journey. It’s been a joy to “meet” and learn from such wonderful people (including you) along the way. :-)

    1. It’s amazing how we can grow such sweet friendship through this adventure, right?! And yes – Abby was the first faith blogger to ever comment on one of my posts. :) I too treasure you, friend and I’m so glad that our paths crossed. I am ALWAYS encouraged by your words and insights. You are a certain stop for me every week! Thank you for visiting today!

  2. How fun that you are relaunching your blog Tiffany! And that you are highlighting some of your friends along the way. So sweet. Not sure if you did a new design, but love your site! Blessings to you as you follow God’s plan for your journey in this big vast world we call the internet! Glad you stopped by to say hi, hope we keep in touch. :)

    1. Thanks so much for visiting, Nicki! Yes, I did freshen up the space a bit with some help from my sweet sister-in-law who designed my blog header. And friends, well – those are just so worthy of celebration! And I’m SO glad you shared in the fun today.

  3. Fun, fun, fun! You are so fun, my friend and quite thoughtful. I love our friendship. Love the gifts, too. Great taste! (((hugs)))

  4. Such lovely things you’re giving away, Tiffany. I’d love to have a chance to win, but it looks like the only choices have to do with Facebook and Instagram. I’m on Twitter but not on them. Sorry. Blessings and hugs to you!

    1. So sorry that you weren’t able to join in on this giveaway, Trudy. And your comment to me was spammed for some reason so I wasn’t able to respond in time to share the other opportunities. I’m going to shoot you an email!

  5. So many fun gifts! I’m excited to explore your site and get to know your friends too! Visiting from #CoffeForYourHeart

  6. I have to say, in the midst of hurricane prep over here on the East coast, I’m enjoying the party on the West coast! :) Thank you so much, Tiffany, for your wisdom, prayers, friendship and prayers. This was an unexpected blessing when I began to write…but then that’s God’s hallmark. Thank you for including me in your party! xoxo

    1. Well, I’m glad you’re safe and still have wi-fi! :) Be safe and friend, you are always welcome here. So, so grateful for God’s hand in bringing us together. And if you think this is a party, just wait til next summer in my backyard! LoL! ;) xoxo

I love hearing from you! Won't you join the conversation?
