It's been a whirlwind first year of our blog. From ideation in April of 2020 to our first post on June 1st, 2020, we developed an initial calendar, theme and logo. Certainly, one of the silver linings to come out of the COVID-19 pandemic has been the many late night content brainstorms and writing sessions. We are thrilled that you are along with us for this journey.
If you've been here for a while, you know that we have been friends for over 20 years. We were college roommates, and were in each others weddings...many years ago! We haven't lived in the same city since graduation, and life has often kept us from getting together more than every year or two, but we've stayed connected. And our common love of reading and writing has been a unique link. (Click here for the full backstory on And She Writes.)
Over the last year, we've started to find our voice as bloggers, and we've shared (and reshared) a few of our favorite books, projects, trips, products and more! In no particular order, here are a few of our faves from the past year:
- 1Canoe2 Stationary
- charcuterie boards, of every shape and size!
- Slow-Cooker Enchiladas Recipe
To celebrate this year of favorites, new friends and personal growth, we are hosting a giveaway! We're gifting a few old favorites (like a Christina Lauren novel and a giant Swig), and a few new favorites! We've also included a great SunBum sunscreen lip balm and a Turkish towel in a beachy color! (Total value of almost $70!)

The giveaway begins today, Tuesday, June 1, and concludes at 5:00 p.m. CDT on Thursday, June 3rd. We will announce a winner on Friday, June 4th in the morning. The winner will be chosen at random and must reside in the United States for shipping purposes.
Good luck! And thank you for celebrating this first year of And She Writes. Keep reading and responding, and we'll keep writing!
