Wow. Just Wow. I have been blogging again for a whole year. I have to tell ya, I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to survive it some times. I’ve had a few moments where I had to step away and think about how and if I would move forward with this project. But, I also can tell you, I am incredibly grateful for those of you who do come by, read and share these posts. I want to thank my personal friends and family who have shared these posts on their social media accounts and spread the word about this blog for me, and for not blocking me on Facebook when I might have posted a little too often!
Most of all, I want to thank my husband. He’s tolerated podcasts in the car. He believes in me enough to agree with me when I need to spend money to grow. He encourages my more frugal side to spend some money on what I love instead of always trying to put everything into the household. Last, I’m lucky for his patience. There have been many times I very grumpily said STOP INTERRUPTING ME WHEN I AM WORKING &^%$#%%$%^$!!!! And by that I mean that I might have been a little too focused on my blog, and he received a less friendly version of the statement above, and he took the “suggestion” to leave me alone pretty dang gracefully. But seriously, STOP INTERRUPTING ME WHEN I’M WORKING. Ahem. 🙂 I’m also grateful he is patient when I give him a hard time on my blog knowing he’ll read it, and babe? Thanks for reading it.
So, here is a little recap of the year:
