A Year in Review

I are probably thinking, this girl missed the boat on the old year wrap up, new year kick off thing. I mean we are a week into 2012! However, bare with me. I am not recapping and kicking off a new calendar year, but celebrating one year of blogging.

A year ago today, I wrote my first post on here! (Click here to read it) Only a few things have changed since that first post. I am still married and my hubby is still wonderful. And we still live in our first home. And we still love it. I still love to create and craft. I am now 23 and my job title has changed to Quality Assurance Manager. I also now have the amazing blessing of working from my home (as of last week...I am LOVIN it, friends!). I also have nixed the whole...line of slings thing. But I DO have my own stationery and design business that I do on the side. I would love to set up an Etsy for it, just have never gotten around to it. Melissa at Lissalaneous Thoughts was my very first commenter. She will always have a special place in my little bloggy heart! :)

We were dealing with so many issues regarding our basement back then. There was some real drama there... Its so fun to read back to what a little wanna be blogger I was. I had not found my style yet, so I just posted about anything and everything. A little patience and perseverance and I have come into my own :) My very first DIY Project I shared was Repurposing Storage Space (okay and not sure why that whole first paragraph is in Caps....LOL)
I have gone from no followers to 280 (I love you all!) which I know is not huge, but to me that is awesome. My all-time pageview history is 104, 052 as of my writing this post. That number is humbling considering that my blog is such a baby. I cannot wait to see what this next year holds!

Thank you for reading this. And thank you for following my blog. My readers are what motivates me! Well...that and the fact that I really am addicted to decorating!
