Welcome to My Party

October 9, 2017, was my 10th blogiversary! 🎉🎈

{cue balloons}

That’s right, ten years ago, I published my first-ever blog post. It was pretty awful.

I’ll admit that I had no idea what I was doing, but I definitely knew why I was doing it: I was a stay-at-home mom with a 1-year-old descendant, a husband who worked all day, and no friends or family nearby.

I really needed to talk “grown-up” to anybody who would listen. So I started blogging.

(If you’re interested, I wrote a more detailed story about how I got started last year.)

Whether you’ve been along for the ride for the entire 10 years, or you are a brand-new reader, I want to THANK YOU for stopping by to read my posts.

So, let’s get this party started! 😊
