It’s my Blogiversary!

On Tuesday I celebrated my first year with this little space. Oh how this year has flown by. I have shared with you holidays, special days, regular-old-normal days, meal planning, recipes, tips and tricks, my home, and so much more. I have shared memories and my heart, I have shared my love for my family and friends, and I have shared my love of making every day a little something special.

When I started blogging, I really wasnt sure who would read here. I didn’t have any expectations, I didn’t have any goals, and I didn’t have a game plan. I just started. I love writing, and my mind is hard to turn off so this little space became something I work on when I get anxious or struggle to turn my mind off. When I have something on my heart I write, when I want to share I write. At night when the kids are tucked in bed, I write. Something so much greater has come of this place, friendships. Friendships that I wouldn’t have made had I not taken the plunge.

Here are my top posts from the year….

My favorite posts to look back on…

Holiday posts, Christmas posts, weekend recaps, and What’s Up Wednesday

Things I am going to work on this year…

  • Social media
  • Hosting a monthly link-up for Pin-It/Spin-It…probably on a Thursday…
  • Taking better pictures
  • Sharing more real life

Over this past year, I have learned so much. I have loved connecting with people, making friends, and I have loved creating a scrapbook for my kids. I also love that my family from afar (Hi Connie! Hi Elinor!) can read here and see what we have been up to.

I would LOVE to hear what you would like to see more of? Anything in particular? What are your favorite kinds of posts to read? What do you NOT like about posts (too many pictures? not enough pictures?)?

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for following along, for all the advice, for all of the support and encouragement. Thank you so much. I am so excited to see what happens in year two. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
