Happy Birthday, my little blog!

A year ago today, I published my first post. I wasn't sure if I would dig the whole blog thing, and started with the idea that I would give it a month or two, and see what I thought. Now it's been a year, and I'm so grateful for this little space in the world wide web. Even if no one (besides my mom and dad) ever stopped by for a little read, I would be ok with that, because I truly enjoy it.

I love the time I spend here, and I love the reflection that happens for me here. I find myself smiling at sweet pictures of my children after they are long in bed, and realizing how special this time that I have with them is.

I love the honesty and imperfection that comes with real life, whether it's puking at birthday parties, spending an entire day in our pajamas or admitting that I get frustrated with my children. It all happens, sometimes it stinks, and I love not having to pretend that I'm perfect.

Thank you friends, for coming along with me on this little journey we call life. Thank you for your sweet words and encouragement, and I hope I can return that encouragement in some little way.

This life we've been given is good, it's abundant and full. Let's smile and find some things to be thankful for.
