Happy Post-Leap-Day Day, aka March 1st!
I just realized today that I missed my blogiversary! For some reason, I kept thinking it was later but guess what, my first post was February 24, 2010! Yup, missed it by almost a week! For months, I kept thinking about how I would celebrate this milestone but guess what, it’s come and gone and I didn’t even realize it! I really had wanted to do a posting on the day of my blog’s 1 year anniversary that said, “Happy 1st Blogiversary!” But I guess now it will be Happy Belated Blogiversary! I love saying blogiversary, can you tell? I guess I will have to plan the next big thing to look forward to. I love being able to look back at older postings to reflect over what I’ve done. As you may remember, I started this blog as a way to keep myself from going crazy and getting depressed about having to go back to work after maternity leave. It provided me an outlet to talk about the things that I’m passionate about and those main things being my daughter (nicknamed, Kiggster) and my husband (nicknamed, Honey) and everything relating to them!
I envision this blog being a resource to others who want an honest review of products/services that I’ve tried, loved, would improve on, etc. I don’t recommend products unless I’ve personally tried and loved it (I have pretty high standards) but also understand that what might work for me, might not work for you. My motto is “One size does not fit all!” I try to talk openly about my challenges because I want others to know that they are not in this journey alone, there are others that can relate in some capacity or another. At least I know for our family, we’ve had and still have our set of challenges and though they may not be exactly the same as what you are going through, it’s comforting knowing that you’re not alone and what you feel is completely normal. Have you ever felt crazy for feeling a certain way (mommy guilt, overwhelmed with marriage/motherhood, etc) or felt like no one could possibly understand what you are going through (child not “sleeping through the night,” nursing isn’t as glamorous as you envisioned, pregnancy hasn’t been a smooth ride, or marriage is a lot more work than you though)? Leave me a comment, let me know what you feel you’re going through right now and if you’d like a friend to “journey” with you through those challenges!
I also like trying my hand at crafting, cooking, photo editing and much more. I am a woman of many passions and hobbies because I would die from boredom without variety! I’m the type that doesn’t read directions super well or excel at things such as cooking, sewing, or in fact, anything domestic! So if I can manage to cook or make something and it turns out decent or *gasp* awesome, then you know you can make it 110% better! I wouldn’t describe myself as a granola-munchy kinda gal but apparently, amongst my circle of friends, that’s what I’m known as because I cloth diaper, make my own baby food, use natural cleaning products, shop at local farmers markets, eat organically, had a natural birth and use holistic methods of treating illnesses/prevention before going the pharmaceutical route (even though I work in the pharmaceutical industry).
I hope that after reading and touring my blog, you have found it to be something you can relate to or laugh at. In a couple weeks (late March/early April), I will be hosting lots of giveaways. Of course, they will only be the products and services that I’ve personally tried, loved, and now want to pass on the love to you! Subscribe via email or follow me through another social media option (Google+, Facebook, Linky, etc) and be the first to find out when these giveaways are happening and what they are! They’re gonna be awesome!!!!
With that said, here are some of my favorite projects and posts from my blog. I hope you also enjoy them as much as I did!
