A year ago today I began to keep a blog about my family. Sharing stories, photos and thoughts with my family and friends has been a great experience.
Let's take a look back at the year.
In my very first post, James had his one year photos taken. How stinking adorable was he at 1?
Little did I know how fast the year would fly by . . .
And how quickly my baby boy would grow.
There were lots of fun outings, like this trip to Lake Tahoe,
And to Tulsa, OK to see the great-grandparents . . .
And back home to New England . . .
And tons and tons of kisses . . .
And smiles showing off new teeth . . .
And visits with cousins . . .
And more kisses . . .
And about a million trips to Jimmy John's for sandwiches . . .
Oh yeah . . . and the announcement of the impending arrival of a little sister!
The emotional ups and downs of pregnancy . . .
And some really short haircuts!
Plus, looking back, there was an awful lot of homemade food-related blogging. Remember:
- Pasta sauce
- Easter bunny cake
- Brown sugar cookies
- Tomato, basil and mozzarella salad
- Carrot cake
- shopping at Fresh and Easy
- Reducing, reusing and recycling
- button rings & bracelets
- growing tomatoes
- hair cuts (mine and James)
- blog layout and design
- Tao of Gini
- The Magpie Files
- Say La Vee
- Redhead in Vegas
- Streaming Egans
- Built to Last
- Endless Possibilities
- Stacker Stories
What a great year of blogging! And for all of you who have been reading, thanks for being a part of my blogging world, and for leaving great comments, and for sharing in the laughter, the tears, the hopes, the frustrations, the humor and the dreams that I have been writing about.
Many thanks to Jerolyn and Katie for inspiring me to jump into the blogosphere. You ladies are the BEST!
Here's to another great year of blogging ahead!
