A look back

One year ago today......I blogged for the first time. WOW! And what amazing people I have met. I started my blog for family and friends out of town to read and keep up with me. And some around town that I don't talk to everyday. I have met so many great friends through my blog. I enjoy each and every one of you. I first started reading Rocks in my Dryer......and fell over with laughter and decided I could do this too. Then Katherine at Raising Five helped get me started.....please go check her out she is awesome. As time went by..Chrissa at Ramblings of a Stay at home Mom and I had so much in common it was scary. Sandra at diary of a Stay at home Mom was one of my first constant readers and commenter's and still is thanks gal check her food blog out...wow.....as the months passed I fell in love with Barb at A Chelsea Morning.....she of course is AWESOME! She talks to me on a personal note and always has great advice for me. She emails and keeps me honest...... Overwhelmed with Joy has great ideas all the time and her Favorite Ingredients Fridays...... The Recipes are wonderful. Patti at Stolen Moments is great and I always leave laughing or smiling. I know I haven't said everyone one on my blog roll.......I love them all ..Gail @ More than a Song...and her sister Stacey at Exceedingly Mundane...sorry ladies it wont let me link to you...stupid blogger.....please check them out on my blog role they are truly special...Gail checks with me daily she is always there to read and listen...and Stacy has a great question of the day every week I really enjoy that. They are so sweet to me. And I cant forget my dear friend who keep things together for me....Laura at Org Junkie......thanks for your encouragement this passed year.....your a great friend. I love all of you.......Flip Flop Mamma....hang in there gal......God is Awesome.....you know this! I'm praying for you.

This blog helps me to unwind...de stress.......and be myself. One year ago.....WOW!
Alot has happened in one year. Miller has turned one. We moved out of our old house. We bought another great home. My grandmother passed away. Life sometimes spins you around and drops you where you least expect it. My life is pretty good right now and I owe it all to God.
Scott and I have struggled and we have shared so much happiness. But we have grown stronger.
I hope you all continue to read about my crazy and some what hectic life. Leave a comment you lurkers......I have truly enjoyed the last year.....Thanks!

Wow, Jen. You've got some great links in this post. I'm going to have to check out that Chelsea Morning. LOL

Honestly, I can't believe you've only been doing this for a year. It seems like you've been out here a lot longer than that.

Happy bloggiversary. Here's to another year of sharing life with you. :-)
