Cherry on Top Spring Cleaning

355 days ago, I wrote my first blog post under "Carolina Charm." For the next few months I kept my blog a secret for two reasons. One, I feared no one would be interested in following the ramblings of a "wanna-be southern belle," writing about my adventures in cooking, crafting, and wedding planning. The second reason was because I was painfully embarrassed by my horrendous "template design," which looked like a 4 year old played with my HTML code. 

A few months into blogging, I started begging Matt to let me splurge on a custom blog template. He laughed and agreed that if I ever reached 100 "followers" he would let me get my custom design. Well, within months I had surpassed 100 followers and was well on my way to 200! I am not sure who was more shocked, he or me! Not expecting to ever exceed 20 followers {all of which would be friends and family}, we re-negotiated at 1,000 followers and I used a free shabby template to tide me over. 

Well, a few days ago Erin at Living in Yellow revealed her new blog design and I knew I immediately needed to pay a visit {pun intended} to Cherry on Top Blog Shoppe. As luck would have it, Melissa was offering a Sidebar Spring Cleaning Special! So for my upcoming BLOGOVERSARY {in 9 days}, Matt purchased this great deal for Carolina Charm! 


Special Ends April 20th!


If you are looking for an affordable way to beautify your blog, I highly suggest working with the talented Melissa on a sidebar clean up! Stay tuned for Carolina Charm's spring cleaning to debut soon!
Happy Weekend, friends!
