Hello everyone. If you are new to my blog, this post is based on an idea I had in order to celebrate the successes of all the new people in my life. On the last day of each month (or close to it), I will create a post congratulating all my bloggy friends and acquaintances on their successes, anniversaries, milestones, achievements, etc. Of course, these will be strictly the items that I have come across during the month in my travels to the challenge blogs I have personally entered or are a team member of, or on my visits to personal blogs. There will be many things I'll miss so please don't take offense if you have achieved a success and you don't find your name listed here. I wish I had the time to check everyone and everywhere but I'd need a cloning machine to pull it off and I believe human cloning is still illegal. So for now, if you or someone you know has an achievement and you would like to have it included here, contact me by email before the end of the month or just include the information in the comment section of each 'Congratulatory Considerations' post.
I am aware of the following reasons for sending out congratulations to members within our community. So ladies, bask in the glow of the congratulatory candle. You all deserve the successes you have achieved! These are listed strictly in the order of when I came across them, not necessarily in any chronological order.
Now of course I was trying to finish this up at 3:00 in the morning and after had added about five different wins realized they were all for the beginning of June. Woopsies!
I also know that I haven't been as diligent this month. With the creation of the new Path of Positivity Challenge blog among other things, I just haven't been able to do as much checking as I normally would. Sorry about that!

So the candle burns brightly for all these wonderful ladies along with those of you who have had accomplishments I'm unfamiliar with.

Until next time,
P.S. It is possible that I have made mistakes as I gather these throughout the month and unfortunately, I just don't have the time to go back and verify. If you noticed a specific mistake, let me know and I'll fix it up as soon as I can.
