Today is quite auspicious, it's been 5 years since I began this blog and this is my 1000 post!
Here's a look back...
Here's a look back...
This year I've been quietly blogging away my daily adventures with the kids and have stuck to my New Year's resolution of a scrapbook page-a-day throughout the entire year. I am already enjoying those 11 albums all lined up, showcasing what we did with each and every day of 2010.
Since this year was all about documenting the everyday, my five senses Friday posts pretty much encapsulate my year. They begin in the frigid months, here, here, here, here, and with glowing hearts.
Then having some wanderlust, taking a trip, indulging and being aware of all the changes of an early spring.
Soon enough, school was out and summer took hold with it's rainbow of colors. Then suddenly, the kids were back to school and it was fall! I documented September alphabetically. Then before long, Halloween arrived, then Thanksgiving. Yikes!
Where has the year gone?!
A hightlight of the year was Chloe's 5th birthday party with a Strawberry Shortcake theme. Also our girls trip out to California to celebrate my niece's golden birthday with an Enchanted Woodland party. Along with Hope's visit in the fall. Of course I documented each season in detail, as I always do. So wonderful to look back at all the color as the cold, grey winter has taken hold already.
I arrive at this occasion with a lot of nostalgia for where this blog has been and a big question mark about where it's going. It seems that I am closing a chapter and hope to open a new one with a fresh focus. I plan to work on compiling all that my blog has been into another self-published book. I also plan to index this blog so that all of the 1000 entries I have done, can be categorized and accessed. I am not sure where this will take me. Hopefully it will offer a new perspective.
One thing I'm very excited about is the Winter Stories class that Hope and I are hosting together that begins TODAY! Find out all the details here. In celebration of all that this blog has been and where it is headed, we are giving away a spot in the class! If you don't want to miss out on any of the fun and sign up before I announce the winner, you will be refunded the price of the class, if you win. Please leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway!
