Blogiversary

Untitled presentation 2_zps3vlwvkaf

Ten years ago today I joined the blogging world.  Back then blogs were just becoming popular and it was a whole different world of blogging.  I started blogging because we had just found out we were pregnant with our first child and we wanted to share our journey with our friends and family.  Fast forward ten years later and 1,175 post later I am still blogging.  I have shared my life with the whole world for ten years and have made so many friends in this awesome blogging community.   Even though my blogging style has changed a little over the years I still enjoy sharing our life with everyone and I look forward to what the next chapter of my blogging life will be.

My first blog post 10 years ago was this image I shared with everyone…

Looking back at all of my post it was so hard to find which ones were my favorites but I found a few or 12 that I wanted to share in honor of my anniversary.

Time to go down Memory Lane

~ONE~

Kate’s Arrival

I can still remember this day like it was yesterday.  I was in labor for two hours at home and finally decided to go to the hospital.  By the the time I got there I was already dilated to a 9! However, we had to wait four more hours for her arrival because she was taking her sweet time.  Once she arrived our lives changed forever.

Abigail’s Arrival

We decided that we did not want to know Abigail’s gender until her big arrival.  June 10th was an exciting day for us.  However, she had her own plans for that day.  My induction started at 5:30 am and she finally arrived at 11:30 pm that night!!!  When our doctor announced we had a beautiful little girl we were so excited!

Sharing how Danny and I Keep Our Marriage Strong

Danny and I will celebrate our 14 year anniversary this year and I love him more every day.

Every year on the first day of school (and the last day of school) we do a fun questionnaire with the girls.  This is one of my favorite traditions.

China

Two years ago Danny was headed to the Philippines for work, so we decided to make a stop along the way in China

~EIGHT~

Fifteen years ago we stood on the Gapstow Bridge as a young couple and Danny got on one knee and proposed. A life together has grown so much since then and brought us back to this very special place.

I have always dreamed of going to Paris, and when Danny was asked to give a presentation in Paris, we decided that I would join him on this wonderful trip!

We took a magical vacation to Disney in 2013.  The girls are dying to go back and I would love to take them back this year, half for them and half for Danny and I.  Now that they are nine and seven, we could do more activities and ride more rides.

  1. 10 years!! Wow!! I love meeting other bloggers and sharing some of my style and thoughts on marriage, parenting, life….but at the end of the day leaving some memories for my kids is the real reason I love blogging. I love scrapbooking but lost track after number 4 arrived and am so far behind!

    • Thanks!! It has been fun blogging for the past 10 years. I have printed 2007 and 2008 blog posts using an online printing program but it is so expensive to print those books!! However, they are great scrapbooks!

  2. Hello! Stopping by from the Tuesday Talk link up. As a new blogger, I had to read your post. 10 years! Wow! Congrats. It’s hard to imagine reaching that anniversary. Thanks for sharing.
