This weekend my blog had a birthday and turned five years old!! It's really hard to believe that I have been blogging for that many years. I just started this blog on a whim, mostly because my cousins started their blog about their adoption journey and I wanted to jump on the blog bandwagon.
When I told my parents I was starting a "Blog" they thought I was making it up! "What's a Blog?"
Looking back at my blog, I do a lot of laughing and cringing at some of my posts. I had no idea how to blog and place pictures. What the heck was HTML? And what was a follower?
The best part about looking back, is all the changes that happened in my life. I started this blog as a single girl living it up in the better Twin of the Twin Cities... St. Paul. I just went through a pretty major break-up and was trying to figure out how to move on from that. Over the years, I've changed careers, bought a house, went on a lot of adventures, met my husband, got engaged, married, pregnant, moved into my husband's house, had a baby and sold my house. And now I am a happily employed stay at home mom. The pay is awesome! Lots of hugs and kisses and laughter!
Another fun thing about blogging is all the fun people I've "met" through the blog world! It's like a ton of pen pals from all the place! Not to mention through, blogging I've discovered some really cool blogs. Which inspire me in so many ways!
Blogging isn't always easy, sometimes it's time consuming and sometimes I have NOTHING to say. Some days I could care less about ever writing another thing, but most days I have big ideas I want to share, even if I don't always have the time to blog.
Thank you to all my readers... whether you have been reading since day one or just started yesterday, I really appreciate you all!!
Happy Birthday Blog!
