Caffeinated’s 4-year Blogoversary

August 14th, 2015 Kimberly Event, Giveaway 117 Comments

14th Aug

As I sit here preparing Caffeinated’s 4-year Blogoversary post I find it hard to believe that four years have passed so quickly. I started blogging in August of 2011 and had absolutely no idea what I was doing. Friendships, personal growth and the community have made the journey joyous and I look forward to many more years. I hope you will join me in celebrating. Last year I did a scavenger hunt and it was a blast. This year I am going to go easy on you and just say “Thank You.”
