A birthday and a blogiversary
Today is my blogiversary and my birthday. I have been blogging for exactly a year, which I started on my 30th birthday.
1 year of blogging
31 years of life
So many new friends
I have blogged about my kids and the crazy things they say (or the embarrassing things that I do).
I've talked a lot about growing up, my sisters, and written several posts for "Life By Mom's Rules: A Survival Guide".
We moved and we painted. And painted and painted and painted...
There were a few scary moments with family, some turning out well and others not and one of those moments I'll even call a miracle even though I'm not really religious.
I confessed 30 secrets, a project inspired by spudballoo.
I dreamed about going to Blog Camp in Denmark but was unable to go so Julie suggested a camp here timed to match up with Blog Camp 2.0 there (a Blog Camp Reno). Some great people (Ali/McGillicutty, rxBambi, AnOpenHeart and Zena the "non-blogger") came to Reno to meet up in September and I'm still quite thrilled for the experience.
I got all crafty this year and there are a few example here, here , here and here.
I bought my first big girl camera and started a flickr 365 project (today is day 50). I'm working on my mini project of the ABCs right now. And this year when I go on the next Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk I'll be prepared to play with the big kids (I hope).
So far my number one most popular post (based on hits) is the PVC pipe fort here and it still gets several hits a day from Google. And the most commented on posts are always the wordzzles.
So it's been quite a year. I have a lot of thoughts rattling around in my head recently about where I'm at in my life right now but I think that will need a whole post of it's own so I'll save that for now. Right this minute I'm going looking for a recipe for Pistachio cupcakes that I used a while back. Yummy Birthday to me!
