a year in review

February 6th will mark my first anniversary of blogging. Given that I haven't posted here in weeks, it seems absurd to even mention it. But here I am reflecting on the year past. My year of blogging sporadically.

So instead of celebrating my blog (a modest total of 63 posts ... 64 including this one), I think it is more fitting for me to celebrate the act of blogging. Briefly. Because it's late and the Good Man has just asked me to not be too long.

Thank you blogosphere for providing me with free therapy as I muddle my way through motherhood.

Thank you all you mommy bloggers out there. I love the way your stories make me think, reflect and laugh out loud.

Thank you to the few people out there who have taken the time to comment on my posts. It means more to me than you'll ever know.

In particular, thank you SMUKKE, a mom living in Europe who doesn't blog herself but followed my ramblings silently. You reached out to me with the most helpful advise and comments during a rough patch with LittleR Dude. You did not know me, yet you seemed to know me the most. I was so self-absorbed at the time that I forgot to really thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

I'm sorry I haven't posted lately. To be honest, I've been using my camera more than words to capture my life as a mom raising two boys and have been posting them on a personal site.

I offer you a sampling of the latest photographs I've taken of my family in this video slideshow:


  1. I'm actually blushing, sitting here reading this. Thank you for your kind words, and for your continued blogging! It's a feat to be able to think, let alone blog, let alone blog like you do in a well-written, well-photographed way, with two small children. There's a reason I don't blog, to put it that way...;)
    Yay for the Internet, for connecting moms across the globe! :)

  2. Congrats on the anniversary! I think I started in February last year too... and I have much less than 64 posts to show for it. I just got too sucked into the blog world, it was taking way too much of my time so I had to cut myself off for a while.

    I like what your Twitter post says about being more of a reader of blogs than a blogger. I think that's me too. But I, too love what mommy blogs do to encourage me as a mother!

  3. Thanks for posting your blog, I enjoy reading about other moms and their children. It is always nice to know that your not alone!
