Happy 6 Months!

I don't know how the past few months flew by so quickly. I remember deciding to try this whole blogging thing like it was yesterday, and I'm so grateful to Tim for encouraging me to take a crack at it. It's been a very reflective past few days for me. How did this blog become a part of our lives so quickly? I've been blogging for 6 months? And look! I'm still plugging away. Still making new friends. Still recording our family's highs and lows. And still happy to be doing it! 

And oh my gosh, do I love you, my beautiful friends. It's an absolute privilege to be getting to know you. I don't know how many times I catch myself thinking, on any given day, "What a good friend [insert your name here] is becoming. How God is blessing me through this community!" This blog is teaching me so much about myself. You all are teaching me about life, and the things that matter most. You have helped make some of my most frustrating, despairing moments joyful again. You have made me smile through tears. I'm thankful for you. 

Thank you for being here. Thank you for being you. 

Happy 6-Month Blogiversary.

    1. Thanks, Izzy!

      And, of course! My blog design is actually a premade design by the team at DesignerBlogs.com. This is my second time working with them, and I highly recommend them! If you use their services in the future, please do tell them I sent you.

    1. Thank you, darling Kristin! I hope you know how grateful I am to have met you here, too. You have helped to keep me grounded in so many ways. At some point, I quit calling you my "blogging friend Kristin" and you just became "my friend Kristin." Tim teases me about it -- I can't wait until the day we can meet in person!
