Happy One Year Blogaversary!

Happy one year blogaversary to me! I can not believe that one year later I am still maintaining my blog! I loved reading back over my very first post ever! Its been tons of fun seeing how far I've come over the year.

Way back when, I started this blog with the lofty goal of blogging every single day. HA! I haven't done too bad though as I've been able to blog 238 (and 239!) times in the past 365 days. Not too shabby I'd say, especially for me :). I've had some tremendous highs with the birth of Griffin and some crazy someone commit me to the loony bin lows when I've talked about our sweet Caroline. Overall though I'd say that I've come a long way.

This blog has been my crutch, my tissue, and sometimes even my friend! I have liked to read back over some of my post when I wondered where my life would lead me. Would I have more children? Would I find happiness again? Just where was my life going to lead me?

I love that I'm able to see all these questions and more answered. And whats more I'm glad that I captured most of these moments and emotions with words and pictures!

I have to say that I'm super glad that I started this blog when I did. For me it has a very New Years resolution type feel to it that I can look back over the past year and see just how things have changed at such a pivotal time of year that is normally saved for times of reflection.

What kind of wife and mother have I been over that past year? Did I try my hardest to raise a loving family? Is there room for improvement this year? What things could I have done differently in my life to make positive changes for myself and my family? As difficult as these questions are to answer they sometimes are even harder to think about.

One thing that I have discovered (and am not terribly pleased at) is I find myself blogging for others reading pleasure and not for myself and my family. Some days I think of something to blog about and then tell myself "no one wants to read about that" or "how boring". Its my new goal to blog anyway!

Anyway, I can't wait to see what changes the year before me has in store for us! It will probably be one heck of a ride but I'm soo blessed and excited to share it all right here!
