1 Year Blessed: Blogiversary

I couldn’t believe it when I recieved the notice of my 1 year blogging anniversary!  I went back to the beginning, scrolling through the months and became overwhelmed.  My husbands cousin Deb, was my first follower.  My very first WP follower was Em at Earthly Brain.  Almost 800 followers later, I’ve gained and discovered friendships and community.

I looked back at all that we have shared this last year, adventures, travels, life, laughter, tears…..the journey of our lives.  And, in recounting of the moments of this past year, I feel abundantly blessed.

Thank you so much for sharing this journey with me. 💕


The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me on this wild Adventure!

This blog is my attempt to write down the bones of a crazy, random, uncharted life and all the shoes I’ve worn along the way…

Most people I’ve known have been like trees or flowers in a garden clustered together in the comfort of friends, family, neighbors and branching out from the strong roots that anchor them to a place called home.
They seem to be born with a road map of thier lives and effortlessly stay the course.
This was not so for me. I’m like an air plant, without roots, anchor or course. …an adventure, a unwritten story where each day begins with pen hovering above a blank page and my home is found only within the hearts of those I love.
There’s a saying that come to mind, ” walk a mile in someone else’s shoes”. As I glance back over the shoulder of my life I see an ever changing girl who’s worn a lot of different shoes.

As you take this journey with me you are certain to meet the many different characters who live inside my head but within these stories I hope you’ll find the sorrows , joys, inspiration in ordinary places, sheer hilarity of life and all the common threads that connect us all.

  1. Only one year? I feel like we have known you/ been blog buddies/ following you for sooo much longer! I am so glad we followed each other, and even more thankful that you decided to take that plunge a year ago. Here is to many many more! 🍷🥂🍻🥳


    • It’s true! It feels like we’ve been old, lifelong friends! Though it does in ways make so much sense…. I do share with you all so much more of myself than I do or would just random people I meet in life. It’s much more intimate of a relationship within our community, one that allows us to know each other more authentically.
      I’m so grateful that we’ve found each other in the world. Feeling blessed 💕

      • That is way to sweet. But I couldn’t agree more. I really think that not really “knowing” the person helps to open up a bit. Say things that I wouldn’t even think of saying in person. It’s like your guard is Down, but because of the anonymity (sort of) you feel safe.
