Happy Birthday Blog!


Huzzah! KaelahBee.com turns One Year Old today! How exciting! I started this blog back in May of 2009 simply to share with family and friends so they could read about my adventures in NYC when I moved there last summer for my first internship at BUST. I took sick while there and the blog fell by the wayside, but I quickly picked it back up once I returned home. I never thought it would come this far. KaelahBee.com has grown exponentially and I couldn't be more excited and grateful! I'm so so excited for all of the things to come! I love being able to share my life in a form that will always be here. My children's children can come read it if they want! I'm also so thankful for each and every one of you who follow along. All 600+ public followers, and everyone on Blog Lovin', Google Reader, or just trusty ol' bookmarks in your browser! You make it all worth it :D I know blogging often seems narcisisstic and self-involved, but I love that I'm able to document my life and actually entertain people at the same time. Such a wonderful feeling! I've met SO many incredible people from this blog and I plan on having them around for a very very long time to come.

To everyone who has followed since day one, thank you! You are INCREDIBLE! And to everyone who we have picked up along the way, or even if you just stumbled across us yesterday, thank YOU and welcome! I'm so excited to have you on board!

I promised an awesome giveaway if I reached 600 followers by the blog's first birthday, and we did just that! How awesome! I will definitely be posting my giveaway soon! But for now, I'm bringing you an awesome little giveaway from one of my sponsors, Mary Sew! Mary Sew is run by Trisha, an absolutely lovely girl that I adore! She's offering up one reader a super cute Eiffel Tower necklace from her ETSY! It is SO darling!

  5. Hmm the best birthday gift I have ever received? One year my mom took me shopping at a very big mall and an art store far from my house, and I got many fabulous things. I would have to say that was the best gift.

  9. Oh how fun, the necklace is pretty and I have actually been looking at buying an eifel tower necklace this last week.

    I'm already a follower.
    (1) The best birthday present I've ever had was for my 17th birthday and my Grandad that lives on the other side of Australia to me, flew over as a suprise on my birthday.
    (2) The most romantic holiday for me that I could imagine would be a holiday to Canada with my boyfriend. I can just imagine cuddling by a warm open fire inside while it's snowing out.

  17. Already a follower, happy 1st birthday to your blog!

    My best birthday gift was the huge stereo I got one year.

    I think the most romantic getaway would be to somewhere tropical, like Belize!

  22. I already follow and happy birthday as well!!

    I just celebrated my 20th birthday this past Friday and I got the best present I could EVER get. My sister was recently in a very bad accident and we didn't know if she would even survive but on Friday she was awake and was talking and is doing so amazingly for only two weeks after her injury. Her speaking was actually THE best present I think anyone could ever get.

  25. The best present I have ever been given for my birthday (which was 3 weeks ago) has to be from my, newly, husband who bought me a beautiful 'grown up' dress to wear to a swanky dinner and he also bought be a childish present of Zorbing - Which I can't wait to do!

    As we recently got married, we have been thinking about romantic getaways (as we couldn't afford to have a proper honeymoon) - My personal favourite would be a beautiful log cabin, in the mountains somewhere with lots of snow. Beautiful big log fire and lots of snuggly blankets - then some nice ambient background music, a glass of wine and my husband :)

    That necklace is beautiful btw xx

  33. I'm already a follower of your blog, among other things. The best birthday gift that I ever received was (as lame as it sounds) permission from my parents to get my first tattoos eight days before my actual 18th birthday. They were adamant that I not get them, but they had agreed and filled my heart with joy & ink. It was a good birthday.

  36. The best birthday gift I ever received was last year. I had just married my husband in July and for my birthday in October he gave me a card that said "to my wife" and I melted. It was such an amazing feeling and it suddenly became real! Best gift ever :)

  37. Happy Birthday!
    I will keep my fingers and toes crossed for this one!
    The best birthday gift I ever received was one that my boyfriend got me last september. my ipod, which I got five years ago, died suddenly, and i decided that i wasn't going to buy a new one. they just don't make them like they used to! unbeknownst to me, my boyfriend confiscated my dearly departed pod, and had the hard drive replaced. he searched for a new part, and even paid to have it repaired! It was the cutest. we also moved into our apartment that day, and he took me out to dinner after bringing me flowers, and putting furniture together with me all afternoon.
    so perfect.

  38. Happy Blog Birthday!!!
    The most romantic get-away is what I am trying to plan right now. Cade and I are getting married soon and I am looking for somewhere cheap, closeby and romantic to visit. I have found this place called Ashton's B&B in New Orleans and it looks simply amazing. I hear they have the best breakfast ever.. I really hope that we can go spend a weekend there!!

    Thank you for the chance to win your giveaway!! :)

  40. The best birthday gift I ever received was when my friend bought me a signed copy of my favorite book written by my favorite author -- Francesca Lia Block's "Missing Angel Juan". I still have the original note tucked inside the book and it makes me smile every time. :)
