Along Abbey Road | A Lifestyle And Family Blog : Best of Twenty Eleven & A Giveaway!

12.31.2011

Best of Twenty Eleven & A Giveaway!


Twenty eleven has been a good year to us.
  • This blog was created and I have loved learning and growing with it
  • I started my shop, Sprightly So, which has experienced much success and enriched the lives of others by raising funds for 2 NPO's
  • The Mister Matt graduated with a master's degree and landed an amazing job
  • We moved to sunny Southern California
  • Best of all we made a little baby, however he won't be arriving until 2012 

In review of Along Abbey Road's year in the blogosphere, there were lots of friends made, great outfits, not-so-great outfits, and awesome giveaways. You might be interested to know that the most popular post/giveaway was for the Anthropologie gift card. I mean, who doesn't love Anthro? You're straight up crazay-zay if you don't.

As a thanks to all of you and in celebration of my blog's first successful year, I am wishing you a very Happy New Year with another $25 Anthropologie gift card giveaway.

Yes, I will repeat that again.
