Happy Blogiversary to me….

Today is a special day here at ‘Circle of Love’ as it is my 1 year Blogiversary!! This blog started, like most blogs, as a way to document what was happening in our family life about 3 years ago. I was pregnant with Anthony at the time and wanted to let our friends and family know how my pregnancy was progressing and what new things Christopher was doing. Well, it didn’t last very long. I posted a few times and then I got so busy that I let the blog slide.

Well, last year I decided to start it up again. But this time it was not only to share what was happening with my family, but as an outlet for me. A way for my to be able to write (yes, keep my brain functioning) and to share my ideas and thoughts with others. And in turn, to search for tips and tricks from other mom’s on a variety of topics….from raising my family to cooking, decorating and crafting.

I can honestly say that this blog has been very rewarding personally. I never in a million years thought I would be so inspired to do and try so many new things. Sewing being the major one. I always wanted to dabble with it, but the last year has really been amazing as I have learned so much. And most of it was by being inspired from others.

I have thought about trying to make money with this blog. I have thought about doing reviews. I have wanted to have hundreds, even thousands of followers. But in the end, what I got from this blog was a great group of friends (ladies….you know who you are!!). Women that live all over the country that I have connected with. Women I truly enjoy talking to and hearing about their lives. Women who walk in my shoes and who understand me.  And that means more to me than anything!!

So, thank you ‘blogland’ for being a great part of my life. I do not know what the future holds for me or this blog, but I do know that there will be some fun things happening in the next few weeks. So, stay tuned and THANK YOU for taking this journey with me!

Have a great weekend….
