(via)I never ever thought that this blog would make it to this day. When I started this blog a year ago I had no idea it would become what it is today. No one, myself included, ever thought that this blog would get more than maybe 300 views. I remember the first week this blog was up, I had 35 views and my boyfriend and I were high fiving and jumping up and down; we always reflect back on those days. It really makes me appreciate where the blog is at now. Some of my posts when I first started were so short and not to the standard that I hold them to now. But of course writing this blog has been a learning experience for me as I learn to shift things around and add new content that you guys want to see.
I started this blog as "The Chapstick Wrangler" because that is what my boyfriend used to always call me. But once the blog started getting bigger and gained more exposure, I knew it was time to change the name to "The Lip Balm Wrangler". Not as catchy, but I still love it. This blog is a part of my every day life, although I'm still a bit shy about telling people about my blog, all the encouraging words I receive just make me want to do even more with this little piece of the Internet I call my own. With over 300 views a day and reaching about 140 countries around the world, I am truly amazed at how this blog has spread. I couldn't have reached this point without all of you, I love interacting with all of you. Whether it's through comments on the blog, Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail, I cherish each and every interaction.
To show a little bit of my gratitude and celebrate reaching the one year mark, I want to hold a huge giveaway for you all. The giveaway will be announced on Saturday after my current giveaway is over. I want to make sure I have all the prizes and prize packages organized, you won't want to miss this giveaway, I promise!

I love each and every one of you!
Here's to another wonderful year on the blog!
