An Anniversary- Come Celebrate!



This is a REALLY special week for me! It's my anniversary! Six little months ago, I started this blog and I never could have envisioned the paths it would take me on and the many ways it would change my EVERY day! As a homeschooling family, sometimes our world can seem a little small. We focus so on family and learning and as the mom doing the teaching, it's so common to become all wrapped up in that and lose your own individual identity. You become the "homeschooling mom", and that's your whole life. Then one day, your littles are bigger and you look around and realize, "who am I". When I found myself in that place six months ago, I began writing and this little blog was born.






I never could have envisioned the joys that were in store for me. I didn't realize all the connections to many wonderful women I would make from all around the world. I never realized that I would feel so passionate about writing again. I never realized that by writing, my world that always seems to whiz by at lightening speed, would slow down because writing about it and photographing it just seems to have that effect. I had no way of knowing that when I put my first thoughts down, on my first not so good post {with terrible pictures!}, that my life would change as it has. It has been an amazing journey that has left me crying for MORE!






So for today, I'm looking back at some of the posts that have meant the most to me and have gotten the most response from the beautiful and kind people that have taken the time to drop by this tiny little spec of a blog compared to ALL the blogs out there. I appreciate y'all so very much because writing is terrific but sharing and knowing that you have affected other's lives in some way is truly awe inspiring! Whether a post changed how you think about educating your children, or maybe helped you tackle your fear of painting furniture, or gave you an idea of a recipe to serve for dessert tonight, please consider giving me some feedback in the comment section, because it's your comments that take this from being just my ramblings to an actual, virtual conversation between you and me. Comments mean SO much to every blogger. It lets us know that we're not just whistling in the wind, but that you are really there and you are listening. If there's something that you're not seeing here that you'd like to, tell me that too!








In case you missed any of my older posts, just click on the links under the photos and it'll take you right back to the original post! Thank you all again for taking the time to visit.  My hope is that this blog will continue to grow and flourish and it will only do that if you'll take the time to share any of these posts, yes, I'm shamelessly begging y'all to click on that little share button at the bottom of each post and SHARE. I'd be ever so grateful!!! This little blog sits in a teeny, tiny, little crevice of the whole world wide web and only y' all, the readers, can give it legs and help it grow. I'd be sooooo grateful and you'd be making my little dream come true!  

Thanks for helping me celebrate my six month anniversary! See you on Friday with a tutorial on how to make a beautiful fall wreath to grace your entryway! I promise it'll be EASY, FRUGAL, and FUN!
