One Year Blogiversary + Iceland Giveaway!

One year ago today I hit publish on my first blog post. Ahhh, ONE YEAR!

I’m so excited and proud of this space on the interwebs. I had no idea what I was getting myself into one year ago, but it has been WAY more fun than I could have imagined! It’s fun (and scary!) to look back on some of those early posts and to see how much I’ve learned in 12 short months. I’ve met some amazing people because of this blog, and I’ve also been able to help a lot of people plan their trips to Iceland, which has been AMAZING!

I started Life With a View as a way to share about Iceland and to help people planning their trip to Iceland to make it EASY. When we planned our honeymoon in Iceland I would have given anything to be able to ask questions to someone who lived in Iceland! I had to search hard to find what to pack! So I’ve committed this space to making trip planning SIMPLE!

Friday decisions…? #icelandwithaview

So what’s next for Life With a View?  I am SO excited about this coming year!  I’ve been working on a big project that will take this blog to the next level and help YOU more than ever!

But the good news is you can still count on the same awesome stuff that brought you here in the first place!

    Just found your blog, Jeannie, and I’m so glad I did. I’m heading to Iceland in October and your blog is going to be so FREAKING helpful. I thought I’d toss my name into the giveaway too – maybe I can just pick it up in person and use that road trip CD on my actual road trip. 🙂

    I just came across your pins on pinterest and have been in awe at the pictures. We are heading to Iceland October 12 for our first anniversary and are so so excited. I made myself read some of our travel guide book before I devour all of your blog posts, so I had a general idea of where things were in the country. I might have to write down all of those candies in the picture to get while we are there. I love chocolate and candy in general, but I love it even more from different countries. Gorgeous blog photos!

    Happy blogiversary! Excited for you and to see where the future takes you, both with the blog and in Iceland!
    And I’m super stoked for this giveaway as well – what a fun way to celebrate. Personally, my Iceland snack stash is starting to deplete and there is a startling lack of lakkris for sale over in these parts 😉 Iceland really has THE best snacks of any country I’ve visited.
