Celebrating 12 Years of Blogging!


 

My oh my I never thought this day would come but yet here we are.

I started blogging after a short stint at a Virtual Assistant and realizing that I could do the same things I was doing that made other people money. It was a decision I weighed very heavily as I was about to not only become a wife but also knowing that my husband worked night shift and a traditional 9-5 job would mean that we rarely saw each other.  I wanted to at least be here when he woke up in the afternoons and share a meal. A short time after this decision my mind was solidified when our lives changed in a huge way, but that’s another story.

We were married November 2012 and had our first child in 2013, all of which we blogged about.

The blog in whatever form became a way to not only share our favorite things but kind of a way to document our lives before the days of Tiktok and all of that lovely stuff we use today. It became known as our first baby because we shared the highs and the lows.

New life, death and so many other things have happened to us over the past 12 years. It almost feels like we have lived a lifetime in the time I have been blogging. We welcomed a second baby in 2017, lots of pets, a mini backyard farm, and through it all we have been able to share it with everyone.

While things have definitely changed and I noticed that Covid-19 took a toll on the blogging world in both positive and negative ways we have been blessed through it all.

I am looking forward to sharing my family for the next 12 or maybe even more through this platform and enjoying product reviews, editorials and whatever other curveballs life throws our way.

Thank you to everyone that has stood beside me, watched from the sidelines and even those who have taken their time to be contributing writers here over the years. It has been such a fun experience and I can’t wait to grow even more in this very unique niche.
