Happy Blogiversary!

One year ago today I wrote my very first blog post. I made it one whole year! Such an accomplishment, right? Not really. But I am really glad I have this little space to jot down the happenings of our everyday, boring life.

not really.

I sometimes have a hard time coming up with things to blog about. Which makes me wonder if I should really have a blog at all. It seems a little repetitive to constantly blog about my kid (soon to be kids!) and what they did that day but I suppose this is more for me than anyone else. If people don't care to peruse the internet about that sorta thing then I guess they won't be reading it, amiright?

I'm not a very "deep" person. That sounds bad - it sounds like I'm a simpleton or something. I'm not. Really! I guess what I mean is that this blog is not a place where you will find philosophical revelations about the meaning of life. You'll figure that out real quick if you're reading any one of my posts. I love reading other blogs about that kind of stuff, though. Some bloggers are such wonderful writers and can articulate exactly what they're feeling at that very moment and they live so purposefully it hurts. I strive to be more like that in my everyday life. I really do. I just don't can't write about it. I'll leave that to the pros.


No, I'm more of a "my-kid-just-shit-on-the-carpet-and-I-think-it's-kinda-sorta-funny-so-I'll-blog-about-it" kind of gal.

Do I blog about high fashion and hair and makeup tutorials? Nope. The second I get home in the evenings I put on sweatpants and I'm lucky if I even shower on the weekends.

Can I tell you about my international travel expeditions and the time I spent feeding starving children and promoting world peace? Nah. But my own kid is still alive and thriving so I pretty much feel like a rockstar anyway.


Yep, pretty high level over here. But that's ok. Maybe someday I'll travel the world and get a fashion makeover and live to blog about it. But for now,  I'll continue to pollute the blogosphere with fluffy mom-blog stuff. I prefer to see the humor in things, especially this whole parenting thing, which can get pretty heavy at times. Sure, I pause and soak it all in - like how amazing it truly is to grow a baby in your belly and watch them turn into a real person all while thinking you could not love anything in life more than you love this little, tiny human and you would do anything in your power to protect them - but then I'm all, "Crap! She just ate a rock and now she's trying to ride the dog like a horse!"

Real life, people. Real life.

So, if you're reading this - thank you. I've had fun this past year and plan to stick with it. If not, you are missing out. Seriously. You're life would be better if you read this blog on a regular basis. Ha.

Like I've said before, we don't live a super-exciting life. But it's our life. And I want to remember it, even the boring and {sometimes} messy parts.

  1. This: ".. like how amazing it truly is to grow a baby in your belly and watch them turn into a real person all while thinking you could not love anything in life more than you love this little, tiny human and you would do anything in your power to protect them.." could not be more true. You nailed my feelings completely about my three (and now grandkids) but add forever and ever, because no matter how old they get, you still have that amazing love for them. Love your blog (Love you!) and so glad you took the leap!
