Over the past year......

Where does the time go?

Has it really been a year since I sat down one Saturday morning and started this blog?
I remember thinking, "I'm going to do one will ever read it, but I am going to blog."

Little did I know...that not only would people read this little blog of mine, but that I would make real connections with so many. Friendships that get me through my day, conversations and that make me laugh, make me think, and sometimes bring me to tears. feels real now.

To say that I have grown so much this past year would be an understatement. And let's remember that I did actually grow...
a lot.
I started this blog when I was about 10 weeks pregnant....and as my little blog grew...
So did I

One week before we met Liam!

This past year of blogging has given me the confidence to do things I never would have tried...remember my very first craft fair?

It went so well that I decided to open an online shop a few months later! I love being able to share my handmade items. I love what I do so much, I can't believe that I actually get paid for it. So I have to say a big thank you to all of you who support me and my's what I like to call my, "happy place"

This blog has been a place for me to share a little of my's surely not perfect, but it has been the best therapy just being able to have this creative outlet. 
I just feel so amazingly BLESSED to be have been accepted into this wonderful community of creative minds with open arms. If I could gather you all up in a room, I would hug each and every one of you!
Thank you, thank you for making this such an amazing year for me!!

I can't wait to see what the next year will bring!
So, CHEERS! and here's hoping I don't run out of creative ideas any time soon!

And stay tuned, tomorrow starts 7 days of giveaways to celebrate!!
I hope to see you there!
