Let's celebrate six years of blogging at Us Two Plus You! {Giveaway}

A flat lay style photo with a laptop seen to the top left, positioned on top of the edge of a notebook angled to the side in the bottom right side.The notepads right page has the days of the working week written out in grey rectangles with blurred writing alongside. A copper coloured metal pen is laid on the table just below the notepad and is half blurred. A cup of coffee sits in the bottom left corner, a succulant plant can be seen in the top right are of the photo.

It's hard to believe it has been six whole years since I first sat down and made the decision to start a blog. I started writing Us Two Plus You back when Dylan was small to help those people in our family who live too far to visit often stay up to date on our lives. Over the last six years that has totally transformed into a little slice of the web where I share our lives, advice, fun activities and so much more. I didn't really imagine we'd be here six years later but here we are and I absolutely love writing, a new development since I was awful at English lessons at school!

I have no idea where Us Two Plus You will take me. I have some ideas on things that I want to start sharing more about and that will be a goal for me to start doing over the end of the year and the beginning of next. For now I have lots of fun Halloween and Christmas, yes I said the dreaded C word but I'm really excited about it!

For now though we'd best get onto the celebration part of hitting 6 years of blogging! This week will hold a whole host of giveaways that I have planned, some have been a collaboration with brands while others are just from me. The first giveaway is included in the post but over the next few days there will be more. Some will be here on the blog while others are going to be hosted on our social media channels so be sure to head over and check them out.

 I'm starting off with a small but a fun giveaway, I have a box of Zimpli Kids Slime Play in green to giveaway to one of our readers.
