Two Year Blogiversary

I can hardly believe it's been two years since I first started this blog.  My cousin and I were sharing an incredible trip to Iceland, and I decided it was finally time to create a blog to record my travels.  My life was different then.  I was 23, in a job I couldn't stand, and not coping well.  Roger was five hours away, I was bored out of my mind, and I felt like I was wasting all my potential (not to mention the tuition money spent on Sarah Lawrence).  Starting this as a place to record all the amazing places I'd been gave me a tiny bit of hope that I'd be in amazing places again.  And I was.  Iceland was amazing, and 2010 slowly started a sea change for me.  Two years later, I'm in a job I genuinely enjoy, finally realizing my dreams of going to grad school, and living in a place I love with a person who feels like home.

And I'm so glad I've been able to share it with everyone who stops by my little corner - some of the most supportive people I know.  To show some of my gratitude, I'm going to repeat last year's giveaway:
