One Year Anniversary on the Blog with a Give-Away!

I’m celebrating ONE YEAR here at

More Than Hungry!

  The year’s been packed tight like sardines.   Between learning How to Blog, I’ve worked full time and married off two {of 3} daughters.

Sharon & Gary

Britt and Zach

Learning the technical aspects has been laborious.  I just want to write for goodness sake.  Looking back to my first posts here, here & here I see progress.  But I want the space to look like what’s in my head.  NOW. 

I’d hire design out to a profession-ahhlll in a minute if I could.  

But I’m on a roll with no plans to stop.

In lieu of having you over to celebrate, I’ll settle for a little Give-Away.

I’m giving away a copy of a book that’s influenced me in a Big Way in the last year.

And I mean that downright for a fact.

The Nesting Place Book

The Nesting Place by Myquillyn Smith

The subtitle says it all.

“It Doesn’t Have to Be Perfect to Be Beautiful”

Yup – it’s become my so-called mantra for…the blog, my house, this skin I’m in.  The phrase has been stuck in my head and that’s a darn good thing.

If there’s just one thing to pass on I’ve learned this year, it’s that.

It doesn't have to be perfect

Beautiful Calligraphy by Lindsay Letters

 I’m so done with perfection.

In my last post about the summer fireplace {here} I mentioned the author when I used one of her ideas.  Both her blog & book encourage us to be more comfortable with – and even revel in – the imperfection all around us.

Donna and Eve

So Stick With Me. 

{And Mr. Hungry too.}

 We have so much to share…unfussy entertaining & hospitality, encouragement in the kitchen, around the table & home, with a splash of buffoonery for good measure.

And believe me it ain’t gonna be perfect.

If you want in on the Give-Away,  you have up to 5 chances.

1) Become an email subscriber.  So many of you make your way here from Facebook.  Sign up to subscribe by email, so that each time I post something new you’ll find it in your in-box. You won’t miss a thing.  For doing this, I’ll put your name in the hat twice!!

2) Share this post on Facebook.  Spread the Love!  

3) Follow me on Pinterest ~ {Here}.   It’s one of my favorite ways to relax and be inspired.  You’ll find thousands of things I’m obsessed with.

4) Leave a comment for me here on the blogI LOVE to hear from you.

Believe me, you’re gonna wanna read this book.

  1. Love to read each entry….it’s like we’re chatting over a cup of coffee (but not in a styrofoam cup). Congrats on your first year ! Hope there are many more anniversaries to come.

  2. Congrats! I’m beginning to learn a bit about web design, so if I see anything that might help you, I’ll be sure to send it your way. I can totally relate to your frustration about knowing how I want it to look in my head, but don’t quite know how to do it yet — we’ll get there! xo
