Five years, 10 months and 8 days ago, I sat down at my desk in my new home in Pittsburgh and typed up my very first post on this blog. I had no idea what I was doing, and I definitely didn’t realize what this space would become to me.
Today I am posting my 1,000th post. ONE THOUSAND! This blog of mine has come so far over the past almost 6 years. I wouldn’t do it if it wasn’t for y’all. The awesome family, friends, random strangers, internet/blogging friends that have supported me along the way.
This blog is so much more than a blog. It’s a place for me to document my life. It’s a place for me to vent. It’s a place for me to share my love of writing. It’s a place for me to show off my pictures no matter how good or bad they are. It’s a place for me to be me.
This blog has been with me since we adopted our little Maggie and lived in Pittsburgh during our first year of marriage.
This blog has been with me for our move from Pittsburgh back to Houston where we bought our first house.
This blog has been with me through football seasons, adopting Moose, and traveling around the world.
This blog has been with me from my career change and struggle to find myself.
This blog has been with me for the birth of my baby girl.
This blog has been with me from race training to half marathon to marathon to running again post baby.
This blog has been here for me through thick and thin.
I love what this space has become. I love being able to look back on it and smile. I love each and every one of y’all for reading it.
So here is to 1,000 more posts in this space of mine. Who knows what else it will become over the years. No matter what, I know it’s here for me.
