Very Blessed!

I noticed this morning that so far I have made 199 posts on this blog which would make this post #200.

I started looking through the blog history and had some fun reminiscing as I went through the last few years of our lives. I started this blog back in March 2008, several months after Tyson and I were married. At that point we were shopping for our first home and most of my posts at that time were about the stresses of buying a home and then the joys of fixing up our little bungalow and making it our own along with gardening and yard work. Since that time the posts have changed. First, we adopted Oscar and he was the first addition to our family. Then in the Fall of 2008 we found out that we were expecting Lily and so while I was still posting about the house, I also posted about the "joys" of pregnancy. And of course when she was born in May 2009 most of my posts were about my growing little girl and our little adventures. And of course now that Charlotte is here she appears in posts as well. I still blog about the garden, projects at home, crafts, and everything else, but it is interesting to see how my focus has shifted over time.

I really should review this blog history much more often, especially when I'm having a rough day. The good times out number the bad and at the end of the day, I am living my dream. I have everything that I have ever really wanted! We may not be rich, I may not have a new car, or the best house, or fancy clothes, but those things don't bring happiness. My happiness comes from my family, my faith, and my friends and I am so grateful for everything that God has given me!


  1. Awe!!!You almost made me tear! There is nothing like family and the love of God. You are truly blessed :-)

  2. I am grateful as well. A few years ago, I never thought I'd be where I am today. And while the "joys" of life can sometimes drive me crazy, I have a husband and a son, and they both love me as much as I love them. I am so fortunate. Thanks for the reminder!

  3. So true! Thanks for the great reminder. That is why I love blogging as well--it is so great to go back and read about all the things that make my life so wonderful!

  4. You should get a book of your blog. My friends did that for their blog and loved the results. If you want the info of the site they used, let me know.
