If you can believe it, I know I can’t, this blog has been around for three years now! And in true veteran blogger fashion, I forgot haha.
I didn’t know the amazing world that I was embarking into and I didn’t expect to fall in love with blogging the way that I have but I can’t imagine not doing it. Sure, I take a break for a week or so every now and again when life gets busy or I feel like I don’t have anything to say. There was a period of time where I was sure no one was even reading anymore but I always come back. Blogging calls to me and tells me to tap the keys and get my thoughts out. Tells me that I don’t just want to connect with other people, I need too.
Blogging has given me access to opinions, people and ideas that I would have never been exposed to before. It has kept me sane during my worst mommy moments because I know for a fact other people have gone through what I am or are going through worse. Thanks to blogging I have made several amazing friends that I will usually reach out to before people I know ‘IRL’. Friends who don’t understand blogging will tell me that I can’t possible have real friendships through the computer but I do and I treasure them and would be so sad if we stopped speaking. I’m invested not only in them but their lives, their spouses, families, kids and it doesn’t matter if we’ve never met face to face.
This blog started because I was home all day with a five month old and slowly losing my mind. Now that five month old is nearly 3.5 and we have another baby on the way. I didn’t have many parent friends around me (although they are all now populating the earth at a crazy fast pace!) and the ones that I did, we didn’t agree on parenting. I was able to talk to other stay at home moms, moms, women and commiserate and celebrate our trials and tribulations. It’s been amazing and I can’t wait to see what this next year brings!
