One Year!

I just happened to notice that today marks the one year anniversary that I started this blog!  Sorry to be sappy, but I'm kind of proud of myself for sticking it out an entire year!  I lost it for a little while there...I didn't blog from the beginning of April until the middle of June.  But that's the crazy-busy part of my year...always is, will be again this year.  But even with my huge lapse in the Spring, I still managed to post 215 times.  Eh, not bad.

I initially started this blog as a creative outlet.  I guess I was kind of bored (I know, I HATE that word...sorry I used it) and I needed something to do that made me feel useful.  I didn't think people would ever read it.  But more than 20 of you crazy people have decided to read the things I ramble on and on about on a daily basis.  (Ha ha...love you all!)  :)  I'm very thankful for my followers...I think I have become a better writer because of them.

In the past year I have vented, made fun of myself, shared recipes, reviewed products, shared funny kid stories, and experimented with photography.  And that's exactly the kind of blog I wanted...something versatile that covers an array of topics. 

If I had to pick a favorite post, I would choose all the different recipes I've posted.  I love exchanging and sharing recipes with others so I really enjoy getting to post them and photos of them here.

So thank you, dear followers, for sticking with me and reading my pointless nonsense.  And thank you for your comments!  I enjoy reading each and every one of them.  Here's to another year!

Happy Anniversary!

Congrats on the Spanish ministry you started too (from comment on my blog). If you want to see progress just come for a visit, it helps when you have to speak it!

I can't remember how I stumbled on your blog--possibly from Lena??? Anyhoo, I thoroughly enjoy reading your entries because you are down to earth and don't try to be cool. I like your polls. I just get the feeling that you will never run out of things to share. Honestly, the respect you show your hubby and the joy you radiate at being home with your kids (most days;) is very inspiring to me--it's not that way on some blogs, as you know. Happy first anniversary!
