It's a Birthday Celebration... And Delicious Giveaway!

We're celebrating a birthday! No, not the President's... though I wish him many happy returns.

The Blue Room is a year old today!

It's been a fun year. I thank you, dear readers, for listening to my ramblings and for talking back as I test ideas and sound off on whatever's on my mind. You've been a great source of wisdom and friendship. Thank you.

The Blue Room is named after our dining room, which we've converted into a study/arts and crafts space. (Read about that here.) I'd love to know---do you have a favorite space in which to play and create? A room in your house? Coffee place? Museum? Park? Or maybe it's a good friend, in whose presence you feel fizzy and creative. Please share in the comments.

I love sending people stuff, so I've planned a giveaway to celebrate. Leave a comment below by 5 p.m. EDT Friday August 5 and you'll be entered in a random drawing to receive some confections from our favorite truffle place.
