Today marks my one year Blogaversary!!!


It’s been an interesting year. I’ve learned what other’s enjoy reading. I’ve learned what I enjoy writing about. Unfortunately, the two aren’t always the same. Ultimately, I’ve learned more about myself in the process.

I’m looking forward to a new year of blogging. So far, personally, 2019 has not been a good year for me. Recently, I have been working on changing that. I want the one-year anniversary of my blog to celebrate growth! My goal for the next year is to continue to learn and grow… not only in one or two areas, while I let other areas of my life slip. I want to grow all around as a wife and mother. I believe as I grow in those two areas, the other aspects of my life that define me will follow suit.

My first-year blogging was a great deal of trial and error. During this second year, I want to figure out exactly where I belong in the blogging community. I’m going to need your help to do that! Keep reading to see how you can help… or just skip to the bottom.

Over the past year, I have had a lot of great blogging moments!

I turned 30… and had a lot of fun doing it! 30th Birthday Photoshoot

My kiddos and I both discovered our love for crafts! My absolute favorite was the DIY (no sew) drop cloth curtain we created. It was a fun and easy project. We created memories, and it adds a great custom piece of decoration to their room! It is still hanging in there, and it just might stay forever! DIY Drop Cloth Curtains

Wesley started Kindergarten! I still can’t believe it. I’m so thankful that he loves school sooo much. Kindergarten Here We Come! William starts Kindergarten this year. I can only hope that goes as smoothly as it did for Wesley… wishful thinking, ha.

The hubby and I took our first vacation to New Orleans!! What a great time. I wrote about all our favorite sights and stops from the trip. Must Dos in New Orleans We could use another mommy/daddy vacation about now!

My most recent blog posts is one of my favorites. I have learned to be confident in myself as a mother. I encourage all mommies to find that confidence. Everyone’s situation is different, but we are all great! If you are like me, there are times you struggle to believe in yourself. Sometimes as a mother and sometimes as a person in general.

There were so many more, too. Check them out if you have time!

Over the past year, I’ve had a lot of great readers! I appreciate each and every one of them for the comments, follows, encouragement, and laughs they have provided for me! Here is a small blurb of the great comments I received:

I was smiling while reading the post! You have explained your experiences in such a fun way!

Great advice! It sounds like you have a full plate and handle it well. I will try to follow your advice. I’m overwhelmed on a good day.

Simply *wow*! I don’t have a family but I still want a command centre! This is just awesome!

Amazing article! When you write, you speak from the heart, which makes your blog posts very personal! Really enjoyed this piece!

Over the past year, I’ve managed to find 88 people that are willing to follow my blog! As far as me and my blog are concerned… those 88 people are stinking awesome!! I appreciate YOU. This would only be a diary without you.

Over the NEXT year, I hope to continue to grow as a writer. I dream of reaching more people, inspiring even just one person, and providing an outlet for all moms to vent, give advice, learn, and share laughs.

I am so looking forward to this next year, and I want YOUR input.

What is something you would like me to write about?

What advice and/or changes do you believe I need to make? 

Anything comments, ideas, advice, etc. that you have for me… no matter how long or short, how big or small… it is WELCOMED.

Thank you for all of the support you have given me over the past year. I look forward to growing with you over the next year.

You are strong! You are beautiful! You are warriors!

Park this morning with my superheroes! What a beautiful day it was!
