One Year of Blogging!

It is official, I have been blogging consistently for one year! That went crazy fast but in that time a ton has happened in my life. I am so grateful for all the blogging friends I have made, and my followers/readers and how much I have learned about blogging in general. I knew nothing about blogging when I started, I just knew I wanted an outlet to write about my kids, fitness and health goals, and product reviews. Transitioning from a corporate job and city life to stay at home mom and suburbia was a pretty difficult thing to do and through blogging I feel like I maintained some sort of connection with my friends all over.

This year I was pregnant, had a baby boy, was in the hospital for 10 days after having a staph infection from my epidural, and then on IV antibiotics for 6 weeks (nightmare city). We also finally did our backyard, watched Claire grow some hair, and I have been on an ongoing war with my pregnancy weight :). Blogging has always been my outlet to forget about stressful situations and to have fun. While it has been hard to blog consistently now that I have 2 little ones, I still enjoy networking, reading other blogs, and connecting to my readers. Thank you all who follow me and enjoy my posts! Here's to year two!

Proof we did our garden, Roses are a bloomin!
Now for a couple fun pics. My brother in law is amazing at capturing the kids expressions when they visit from San Diego. Claire learned the art of the smile, which I have still unsuccessfully replicated. Here she is with her aunt, and cousin Olivia

This is a milestone!
