1 Year Blogiversary!! (part 1)

I can’t believe it! One whole year of blogging! Following through is not one of my strengths, so the fact that I started something and regularly maintained it is amazing for me.

Here’s a look back at some of my favorite posts…

My very first post!

I had no idea that I would have so many great experiences that would hatch from this one little blog. I’ve gone through (and blogged about) so many ups (like getting my recipe published in Oxygen Magazine…online AND in print!! Sooo crazy!) and downs (like the time I destroyed all of my husband’s laundry).

This blog literally chronicles me growing up. I went from living at my parents’ house to being the head of a household overnight. It’s so weird for me to look back at how clueless I was. I still have a long way to go, but jeez! I really had no idea what I was doing! My motto was fake it til you make it.

I gave a rundown of my 2010-2011 school year on my last day of school in June. My thinking process is still that of a child, in the sense that a new year begins when I go back to school -er work. Click here for that highlight reel. Since I talked about all of the things in that post I should have talked about here, I’m going to do something different.

Here’s Finding Silver Linings by the numbers.
