It’s Been One Year…

I realized last night that this blog is one year old today! I will spare you a long-winded account of how it all began, although if you read this blog regularly and you know me in real life you know I am long winded. The short version is I wanted to revamp our long neglected family website last year. I didn’t realize that a blog format was what I was looking for until my husband introduced me to blogging. I was skeptical at first but then he hooked me up with a domain name and a Flickr account and I was hooked. I needed a creative outlet, especially since I was working from home last fall with a 7-month-old Amelia. I’ve made friends through blogging and I’ve discovered an entire blogosphere of funny, talented, and incredible women.

Here are my top 11 (I had to add one more) favorite posts from the past year…

Workin’ From Home Mom Blues
Delusions of a Working Mom
More Boobs Than Bourbon Street
Super Caitlin
Being 3 Means
Hell on Wheels
Mama Don’t Get No Flex Time
The Young and the Mostly Restless
Baby’s First Car Ride
and Up, Up and Away in My Beautiful Brassiere

p.s. I think I will milk this “birthday” for a piece of cake or maybe ice cream after soccer practice tonight.

    Happy Blogiversery!

    I was purusing your favs list and clicked on the last one which was so funny to me because not five minutes ago I was dressing to go out to walk and the bra I wear for excercising doesn’t “fit” me the way it used to! I was looking at it and in the mirror and trying to adjust and readjust and I remembered that I bought the bra after Sweetpea but before Boo-boo. What a difference another child made!
