Today is the official one year anniversary since the birth of this little blog. Sandier Pastures, first inspired by my relocation to Dubai and my want to share our desert living experience with the world, is one year and 475 posts old!

It has been a great year. Writing about life in Dubai has brought me to discover more about this diverse (sometimes strange) place, it’s history and culture. At first, I thought I would tire of it and give up but I haven’t and I’m surprised it actually made me think of my surroundings and made me strive to experience something new every week.
So what’s in store for the bloggiversary party? In case you forgot, there was a little contest I posted three weeks ago which got an overwhelming response! Thanks to all those who helped spread the word.
Now, without much further ado, I present you the winner of a blog makeover
I wished was for me:
UPDATE: I was informed that Susan already won the SAME prize at a different blog so I get to chose another contestant. She is twice lucky!
Nathalie wins a Gold Package Blog Makeover (valued at $100) courtesy of RS Designs.
Thanks to everyone who participated, posted shout outs and greetings. All your comments and visits had become an inspiration for me to post every single day. Here’s to another year of blogging!
