Yesterday marked 3 years of blogging for this girl and I celebrated with my traditional blogiversary cupcake. I am supposed to be “being good” nutrition wise and honestly I think I have been (comparatively speaking 😉 ). But who am I to argue with tradition?!
In three years of blogging I feel like I have expressed myself better than I did in the previous 30 years of my life. I’ve grown in leaps and bounds and know more than ever who I am… I’m also more okay than ever with people not loving that person. You can’t win them all, right?
I have become a bit of a techy, worked on my grammar skills (still a work in progress), developed photography skills, and made some of the best friends a gal could ever wish to have.
So I don’t normally post on a Saturday but…
Today we are officially two!
And I think that is worth celebrating.
(Last years celebratory cupcake)
So today I will light another candle and celebrate two year of living the blogger life.
Thank you so much for celebrating with me!

Have a great rest of your weekend!
Two years ago on March 5th, 2014, this little corner of the blogging world became mine. I think back on the beginning
and I am left dumbfounded. I never imagined this space would introduce me to some of the most amazing, supportive friends a girl could ask for and become an outlet, a ministry and a source of income for our family.
It has been an amazing two years.
Part of the fun of growing is looking back.
I wrote 283 posts over the past year.
Gained nearly 1,000 followers on Instagram.
Tripled my follower on Bloglovin & Twitter.
And have almost doubled my followers on Pinterest & Facebook.
My page views have nearly tripled as well.
So I really feel like I need to say a big huge thank you!
You are what makes this so much fun and worth celebrating
And it turns out I’m not the only one celebrating…
When I found out two of my favorite bloggers were also celebrating blog birthdays this week, I knew we needed to celebrate together and what says celebration like a giveaway?! We each donated one item we love for each year that we have been blogging and one lucky winner will take it all.
A Pioneer Woman Cookbook, Chocolates, $10 to Target, Essie polish, Bat & Body Lotion, $5 to Starbucks and an infinity scarf.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for another great year! I can’t wait to see how things continue to grow over the next year.
Today marks one year of blogging.
One year ago today I sat down at my computer and wrote a post. The post declared to all that I was a terrible blogger and I was.
Over the previous year I had tried to start blogging and failed. For some reason on that day I decided to go for “it”, not even knowing what “it” was. Ever since that post I have been blogging faithfully. In fact over the past year I have published 259 posts.
Ultimately it isn’t about a number of posts. It is about the 259 chances those posts gave me. The opportunities I have had to connect with readers, share my life, inspire, encourage, be myself (my real self), craft, cook, share my kids and occasionally poor out my heart when verbally I just couldn’t do it.
I have learned so much about myself living the life of a blogger.
And who knows, maybe I’m not such a terrible blogger after all.
Today I wanted to share with you 5 of my favorite posts from the past year.
Our Home Tour
We all know a celebration wouldn’t be complete without a giveaway.
So, here you have it!
I am giving away a Pretty Girls Handmade
scarf. I will email the winner with some pattern choices to pick from when they are selected. You will also receive a $5 Starbucks gift card.
Thank you so much for reading along.
You are what makes this so much fun and worth celebrating.
