Happy two years!

Holy cow!  Two years?  I've been at this for two years?  That's craziness.  I did a little trip down memory lane for those first few months of when I started blogging.  One of the things that stood out to me the most was how much things have changed.  When I first started in May 2010, I was planning a wedding, living in an awful rental house with unwanted critters, and not sure what I wanted to write about or where I wanted to go with this blog.  Now, two years later (just two years, mind you!) and I'm married, we built our own home, and we have a baby girl.  How in the heck did all of that happen in two years?  Man, we move quickly.

One of the things I did notice was my posts were a lot longer and full of more content.  Granted, I had a little more time on my  hands to write back then, but still...I really put a lot of thought into what I wanted to write each day.  Not that I don't put thought into my posts now, mind you, but a lot of times I find myself just spitting out a random post here and there.  And when I first started blogging I tended to write on specific topics or thoughts I had.  I remember writing down ideas that came to my mind at random times so I could go back to them.  I'd like to get back to that. 

Granted, I know things change, and as time goes by, your focus changes, as well.  My focus isn't the same as it was back in 2010, and it sure won't be the same as it is now two years from now.  I do hope that two years from now I'll still be writing this blog, but who knows what will inspire my posts at that time?  Who knows where I'll be?

So this is a goal of mine with this blog is to get back to writing.  Creative writing, that is.  I want to get back to posts with substance, posts of which I can be proud.  I don't think it'll be a goal I can accomplish on a daily basis, but I sure would like to try.  

However, my first post is hilarious. I got some crazy idea to make this healthy recipe for brownies from a cookbook my MIL gave me. The recipe called for using black beans. She saw it on Good Morning America, and the hosts who ate the brownies swore they couldn't taste the beans. Well, they were big fat liars. Because the brownies tasted like black beans. And were gross looking. Check it out.

Here's to another year of blogging!  Thanks for being there for the ride!  I always love my readers and those who leave comments!


  1. I remember when you first started blogging! I think I found you shortly after you started and you are right... I can't believe it's been two years and look at all you've accomplished in those two years! AMAZING! And you didn't even mention the fact that you got to go to IRELAND on your honeymoon! That in itself is a lot to say. You go Nain!

  2. We started blogging around the same time. I look back and cringe at some of my earlier posts. While your life has gotten busier, mine has gotten easier with kids starting to school!

    (Now I have to check out the brownie post, yuck!)

  3. How could I forget? Ireland was amazing!

  4. Two years already? Wow! Happy blogoversary!

  5. Happy two years! Glad I finally found you! And, by the way, I love black beans . . . but in brownies?? Eww gross!

  6. Happy blogoversary! And on my birthday, too! Believe me, the years WON'T slow down.
