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!

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.

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.
