6 years

Today marks my sixth blogging anniversary. That’s kind of crazy.

I never would have imagined that six years ago when I started a blog on a complete whim, with no direction, no goals, no plans, no niche, and no content to speak of, that I’d still be doing it… and loving it six years later.

Two years ago I wrote a post recapping what a new reader might have missed from the first four years. We were engaged, we got married, I planned events and taught some college classes, I had a baby, and had another baby, we sold a house and moved in with Todd’s grandmother. And now we’re here. Six years later and getting ready to move into our family home.

One of my favorite things about blogging is that I can look back and remember big things and little things. So I wanted to share with you some of my favorite posts from the last six years.

Some are super recent and some are super old. Some are deep and some just make me crack up laughing because of the memory. I’m so glad that I’ve stuck with blogging, and want to continue to write from the heart, and write the memories that are fun to read again and again.
