Belated Blog Birthday Party

So guess what I missed celebrating?
My first blog birthday!

I can't believe I missed it! I didn't even write a post!
Bad Mom!

June 12th, 2013  was the date that marks one year for my favorite blog! My blog has been more than I could ever imagine. I know that this blog, my lovely followers/friends and the inspiration I have received from all of you has been the most amazing! People from the outside do not understand what this world has to offer, as I didn't before I joined, but now I don't ever want to give it up ;)

It is hard to believe that 191 blog posts ago that I wrote my very first post. Don't bother looking at that post. I barely had a grasp on sizing images (still only barely have a grasp) and barely a grasp on writing for that matter. Haha! Since then I have made many friends and am feeling the need to celebrate these past 373 days with some cake and wine!

When I started this blog, I truly didn't know what to expect. I knew that I had a lot to share (whether I should or not is beside the point haha), but didn't know if I would end up with anyone on the receiving end. When people began following, commenting and simply visiting- I was surprised. Honestly, not that I have low self esteem, but when you are putting yourself out there you never know what's going to come of it. I am very proud to say that through having the courage to put myself out there, I have made a small place for myself in at least a few hearts. I have met some wonderful bloggers that have been completely awesome! I also hope that one day, I have the ability to inspire a few new lovely bloggers.

I want to thank each and everyone one of you for visiting and inspiring me more than you will ever know. I will be happy if I have brought you a tenth of the joy that you have brought me! Here are the posts that brought you coming back to this blog for more, according to the stats:

(Really surprised that my top two posts for pageviews are food...haha!)

One more thing I would like to say. (Its my party and I'll talk if I want to...)
I started out as a silent blog reader. Never left comments, etc... If anyone is out there silently reading my blog (I know at least Andrea is there) and you are thinking of starting up a blog, DO IT. It opens up a whole new world and has impacted me beyond just reading. If you enjoy reading blogs and can write then know there will be some people enjoying reading your blog...

Now I could go into specifics...like how choosing a name for your blog is probably the hardest decision ever...at least it was for me and wow this has got to be the longest run on sentence ever...are all my sentences this out of wack?

I digress. I still don't know what I think of my blog name but that too is also beside the point.

What was I saying? Oh yeah. Start a blog! Because blogging has truly given me a sense of who I am and what I strive to be. I learned a lot about myself with this blog, and I think I have improved on some things along the way. Oh and the blog friends...there is something indescribable that I can't explain about the friends I've made along the way. They are just amazing, and I seriously could name so many of them who have touched my life and been there for me in hard situations. If that's not rewarding then I don't know what is. Especially some of the comments I have received over the year and conversations therein. They have brought a big smile to my face.

I can't wait to see what this next year brings!
