Today is my OFFICIAL ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY and I just want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has supported me over this year! Thank you to Ana Flores and Roxana Soto of Spanglish Baby and Tracy of Latinaish who came by to support my blog in the early days with comments.  Before I had even been writing a month, I was on the invite list to guest post at Spanglish Baby and that helped me to realized the worth of my writing and my voice.  From there I went on to New Latina and News Taco…experiences that really gave me the emotional boost I needed to believe in myself. Thanks to all the bloggers who saw value in my words and asked me to guest post!

Thank you to one of my best amigas, Dulce of Dulce de Leche, who stuck by my side when I had my first online drama and supported my opinions when others attacked them!  Thank you for taking an interest in my story and I think you had the VERY FIRST COMMENT on my blog!!  Your positive energy shines a light onto everything I write and keeps me grounded!

Thank you to my constant bloguera supporters Letty, Ezzy, Ruby, Dania, Adriana, Angelica and all the fab bloggers that I work with over at Multicultural Familia for always supporting my voice and making my blog a second home!

Thank you to everyone who has followed me on Facebook and Twitter to show your support and share your wisdom!  I truly appreciate everything I’ve learned from you! I also want to thank my hubby for all of his support, even when he couldn’t quite understand the allure of blogging.  ;)

A Special Giveaway – Win a $50 Amazon Gift Card!

So, I wanted to giveaway something special today, to celebrate my one year anniversary.  I thought about it a lot and decided that the best gift is one that you can pick for yourself.  This way, you can treat yourself and get something special!  So, on to the giveaway! ;)

    Hey Chantilly,

    So glad you've got an awesome support network! I'm not sure if you still want me to answer the Chef McCargo question (but I will if you want…) because I've got a copy of that awesome book from Blogalicious! Congrats on one year!!

    Well done Chantilly! You may not recall, but when I was researching information for my blog, yours was one of the first I came across last March. I was looking to see who else was writing about being a bicultural MaMMa and found you! It was your writing and honesty that helped me get started and realize that I could really do it. While you are far more prolific than I and we write about different interests, there are many similarities in what we experience and for that I am thankful. Appreciate the light whispers in my ears to keep going…even though you may not realize you are doing it! Happy 1 year blog-anniversary!

      Thanks Leah!! I do remember! I saw your comment and remember visiting your blog to read your very first post!! So excited for how far you have come! Everyone has a unique story to tell and yours is no less valuable than anyone else's! ♥ I remember when I first read your blog, I was so excited to find a place where Samoan culture was talked about and also…a fellow member of the "I have an obnoxious MIL" club! LOL! Thanks so much for sharing your story with all of us and I really appreciate all your kind words! ABRAZOS! ;)

    Chantilly, crossing paths with you was a highlight of 2011. You're a fearless writer who gives without expecting anything in return. You've inspired me in so many ways to want to be a better writer and blogger. THANK YOU. If not for your gentle nudge, I might not have started writing in Spanish. Un abrazote and wishing you success in 2012.
