It’s fun to look back and see how far my blog has come. What started as just a hobby blogging about my husband writing his book, has manifested in to a full blog about my life. From projects, to restaurants, to book reviews, and life in general (living through and moving on from a miscarriage), this blog has become pretty important to me.
While I know not that many people actually read my blog, when I receive comments about how one blog post was able to help one person, then I know I’ve done my job. Our miscarriage is really what got me back in to my blogging last year - or at least taking it more seriously. I needed a way to get my feelings out, and writing has always been that for me (it’s hard for me to actually sit and talk to someone about my feelings…but it’s easy for me to write them down somewhere). And I realized that talking with a friend who’d been through the same thing really helped me. So I melded the two and decided to post blogs about how I was feeling, and if I could help one person, then it was all worth it. I’ve had a few comments from people, and it makes me feel good that in that moment, I was able to help someone else work through their pain too.
Of course, it’s just fun to keep friends and family in the loop of things too – from blogging about the little girl we are expecting to home projects we’re working on, I wanted to share the news. I’ll have plenty of new projects to add to my blog once we get in this new house (assuming the appraisal goes well – please send prayers and good vibes our way for that!).
With our travels, we’ve tried so many new places. When I find a gem, I post it on my Recommended Restaurants page. So if you’re planning on traveling somewhere, check it out and see if there’s anywhere I’ve been that you should try! If you have any suggestions as well, I’d love to see them in the comments section so that I can go there if I ever travel to that place.
My book and movie reviews are probably my favorite thing. I love reading and going to movies – and then sharing my thoughts. I think I’m almost to the point where I need to start alphabetizing my reviews instead of just adding it to the list. =) I’m hoping once Brooklyn arrives, that I’ll still have enough time to keep up on my reading. I’m sure I won’t be able to read 50 books in one year (unless they’re all graphic novels or something), but I would like to still get through a decent amount of them – if not just to keep my sanity. =)
Anyways – I just wanted to acknowledge my blogoversary and thank everyone for supporting me. Hopefully my blog continues to entertain people and will keep growing over the years. Thank you for all your support - and hopefully soon I'll have some more posts about Brandon's novel! The goal is to get it sent to publishers by the end of the year!
