So my 3 year blogiversary came and went. How could I forget. Now before I get all mushy, let me explain a bit. This year has been different than my two previous years. Obviously, no year is the same, but hear me out. As I was going through each month and highlighting a few of my favorite posts, it hit me. The past 6 months have been rough. Very rough for us and it shows on my blog, because for a few months I only posted maybe 3 posts per month, and none were too happy. It’s like I had forgotten, than BAM, in my face. I hate when that happens.
So please forgive me if I skip a month in my recap below.
I am excited for my 3 year milestone. I have learned and grown and hopefully impacted some of you as much as others have impacted me. You all have helped me heal through my losses by sharing your stories, filled my belly with your fabulous recipes and tips, and given me encouragement to keep on blogging. For all of this, thank you.
- I’ve written 181 blog posts this year, as opposed to 303 last year, and a whopping 510 the year before!
- My most popular Food blog posts from this year are: Drunken Pork Chops, Patty Melts and Homemade Hotdog chili. All food posts, no surprise to me.
Now a review of some of my favorite posts each month. Just click on the pictures if you want to go to the original posts.
I kicked off my hatching eggs sales, wrote about the benefits of home raised eggs, and went tractor riding.
We went to gator park, the boys got big boy beds, and I documented the laying of an egg.
I went crazy about pumpkins, Prairie Days Festival and Halloween.
The boys turned 3, was hopeful for a broody hen, and enjoyed cooking for thanksgiving.
We decorated for Christmas, celebrated Christmas, and Mom did her first (and possibly her only post), Spatchcocked Turkey.
After toy explosion from Christmas we had to do some organizing, Chloe and Cricket at it again, and I invented a new form of child distraction.
The boys did a little horse painting, tractor riding, and spring was in the air.
My very first broody hen and Easter.
The heat began and we cooled off visting Gator Park, playing on the slip-n-slide and being Ree-diculous.
The Paci Fairy came and we lost our sweet girl.
As the new blogging year continues, I know we will have many more happy times and I can’t wait to share it all with you.
