Unless you’ve been following my blog from the start, you may not realize that It’s An Ordinary Blog turns 1 TODAY!
On October 4, 2012, I published my first ever post on It’s An Ordinary Blog. In case you missed it (which I assume applies to 99.99% of you), you can re-visit the post here: A Weighty Issue, What Makes a Role Model? Looking back on my year, I feel incredibly humbled. With just a few readers (mostly family…okay, pretty much just my husband and mother) and a whole lot of ideas, I started on this journey. Even though I’m still working to develop who I am as both a blogger and an individual, I feel that I’ve come into my own as a writer. I love having a place to share my adventures in parenting and in life with all of you. Even more than that, I feel blessed beyond measure that there are people out there who are even remotely interested in reading what I have to say. This day is so meaningful to me in so many ways but mostly because I’m grateful for my readers. Let’s take a look at this past year:
We took an incredible trip back East and stayed in Jekyll Island, Georgia.
We spent some time in Downtown Disney.
I hosted my first giveaway from Bumblefly~N~Butterbees!
I shared about meaningful gift giving.
My daughter hated Santa.
I hosted a baby shower…
We played in the snow.
We celebrated Spring.
We ate some food…
And spent some time on a farm.
We re-did our guestroom for less than $15.
We traveled to Corydon, Indiana…
And enjoyed some comforts of home.
Most importantly, we had the wonderful opportunity to share all of our experiences with you. Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a part of my journey. Words cannot express how immeasurably thankful I am for this blog and can’t wait to continue sharing with you in the coming years. To you, to me, to It’s An Ordinary Blog…Happy Birthday!
