It's my birthday...my blog's birthday I guess I should say.
Two short years ago, I closed my eyes and hit "publish", having no clue what
this little hobby would lead to. Approximately 350 posts later, I'm still typing
away, amazed at what a blessing this little piece of the world wide web has been.
Originally started to share a little more of our lives with friends and family,
never guessing what I would learn about myself.
Just to share with you some of the blessings brought fourth by this blogging hobby of mine, I've compiled a list of posts, past and present, that show why I'm in love...
(just click the link below the pic to read the post)
My blog has been and still is the virtual scrapbook of all our
school projects, art projects, or just plain ol' projects.
We are a busy crafty family...we've always got something going on.
I love that I can look back on old posts and see fun things we've done...
especially on bad days when I'm wondering, "why I'm homeschooling again?" :)
Blogging has brought out passions in me I didn't know I had...
like taking photos...dropping my point and shoot in the
creek was the best thing that ever happened to me...well sorta.
Buying my first DSLR has shown me a whole new art form,
and blogging has encouraged me to learn more.
Blogging has enriched our homeschooling so much.
Reading other homeschoolers' blogs, meeting others that are crazy enough to do this too, and being encouraged by readers to keep going is such a blessing.
Through blogging, I scrounged together the guts to do something with my creative side and
start my very own online shop.
I have absolutely loved this!
Never would I had guessed that just months later, it would lead to this...
Also through blogging, I realized just how much I loved expressing myself through words.
I always thought I hated writing until I started actually doing it.
I've loved sharing my thoughts and then hearing yours in return.
And last but not least...the friendships! This is the very last thing I thought would ever happen through blogging. But it's lead to friendships both virtual and real-life...and
I so hope to meet a whole list of you someday!
And to show my appreciation for y'all stickin' with me these last few years,
I want to give one of you something sweet from my shop.
