Allison: Belated Two Year Anniversary Celebration

Alice in Wonderland Gif

Somehow in the craziness of my life, I managed to forget my two year anniversary as co-blogger here at Good Books and Good Wine! I’m not sure how exactly I managed to do that except for the fact that I’m currently more than knee deep in graduate school work (thus also explaining why you haven’t seen any reviews from me lately) and trying to balance school and work. But now that I’ve realized my slip up, I’m making it right by doing a quick post … and a giveaway in celebration!

On February 26th, 2012 my first review went live on Good Books and Good Wine.  I remember being nervous about it. This was so new to me. I mean, I had watched from the sidelines as April had started out into this world, and been amazed at the connections she was able to make, and the things she was able to experience. I couldn’t believe I was going to possibly be able to do that too.

And I have! In the past two years, I’ve been able to meet bloggers who understand me, authors who I’ve admired, and people associated with the publishing and book selling world who love to talk about books just as much as I do. I’ve created so many good memories that will last a life time. I really can’t thank all of you enough for that!

Thank You Justin Timberlake

This has been such a wonderful experience that will hopefully continue on. I look forward to much more bookish fun with all of you. Here’s to another year of good books, blogging, friends, and glasses of wine!

  1. Congrats Allison!

  2. I love the GIFs. It’s a toss up between either Belle or Justin Timberlake – Bring it on down to Liquorville!

    Happy cobloggerversary, Allison! 😀 And here’s to those many more good books, blogging, friends, and (especially) glasses of wine!

  3. Happy 2 years, Allison! I can definitely relate with the many hats I am juggling in my own life. Going to school full time + student teaching + working full time is a FULL TIME EVERYTHING, ha. It’s definitely made me admire those who are doing it as well.

    HAPPY 2 YEARS!!! Life is crazy sometimes and you just have to hang in there. I am a full time student with 2 jobs, a house, a family and a blog… Yup, I totally know how it feels to let time wash past and then suddenly realize <3

  10. Happy 2 years of blogging, Allison! I’m really glad that you joined April here at Good Books and Good Wine. It’s been great reading your reviews and posts, and having Twitter conversations. Hopefully, if you come to BEA again this year, we really get a chance to hang out and chat properly!
