Happy Blogiversary To Me - 3 Years and Counting!
Wow, tomorrow will be 3 years since I wrote my first post. I could not have imagined when I that I would still be in love with blogging as much as I am, and that I would have as many amazingly wonderful followers as I do. I am so blessed to have met (and continue to meet) so many fabulous bloggers and made great forever friends because of blogging. I didn't know that would happen, what a wonderful surprise it has been.
Over the past 3 years this blog has changed, tweaked and evolved into something more than I could have dreamed. Originally I started it to showcase my, at the time new business, Sew Fierce. I wanted future customers to get to know me, my family and see the passion I have for creating beautiful handmade products.
Since my first post amply named "Let Me Introduce Myself" launched on Aug 7th 2008, this blog has always reflected who I am. As I sit here going back through my first week, memories are flooding back. Like my post about C's first day of preschool...omg she was so little. My first recipe/foodie post " Steak & Potato Pizza", and my first Sew Fierce Giveaway.
Remember that feeling when you saw you had your first follower? Heart pounding, lump in your throat, just giddy with excitement. I still get that feeling every time I see a new follower, it's just pure joy. Someone likes what you do, what you say, what you make, ect. Whatever the reason, it makes me feel all happy and squishy inside.
So while this post has been about lil 'ol me, it's really a big huge thank you to everyone who follows, reads, comments, or tweets about my blog. Without you all, this blog would not exist :)
Make sure to stop by tomorrow as we kick off our 4 days of Giveaways with a fabulous prize from Happy Hapa!!!
