Medical Mondays Celebrates One Year Anniversary!

 Today my illustrious co-host, Emma at Your Doctor's Wife, and I are celebrating ONE YEAR of Medical Mondays! Somedays it seems like we just started and at the same time feels like we have been doing this for longer than I can remember. 

I am so thankful for people like Emma who have great ideas and let me tag along with them. She could have asked anyone and I am honored that she let me partner with her in launching this blog hop.  I don't know how she does it, but she makes everything seem effortless and exciting. Remember her post where she changed her own flat tire and didn't even chip a nail? There are pictures to prove it. She is a rock star in my book!

And yet, where would Medical Mondays be without YOU?? Our friends, our participants, our bloggers-- you all bring us the warm fuzzies each and every time you link up with us.  We love seeing you on the grid. We love reading what you've decided to share with us. Sometimes it's a DIY, sometimes it's a rant about a bad day/patient/attending, sometimes it's a reminder to be healthy, sometimes it's a lesson learned, sometimes it's family photos, and sometimes it is all about the pager. It's always something different and fun to read about. And I especially delight in the number of friendships which blossom from this link up. It is working! 

So, this month, to celebrate Medical Monday's one year anniversary, we celebrate our Medical Monday participants by having a bit of fun in the form of a $100 Amazon Gift Card GIVEAWAY!

Entries are open only to MM participants, both past and present.
