Third Blogiversary and BSM – painted sky

Three years ago today I started this blog without any real expectations, just a need for a space to share my thoughts and passions. And that is what I have done, but not without learning a lot about people, human nature and life along the way.

My blog itself has evolved a lot over the years. It started with Blogger as Musings of a Crunchy Domestic Goddess, changed to WordPress and then, after I registered my own domain, it got a groovy blog makeover and a shorter name – Crunchy Domestic Goddess. In three years, I’ve gained many readers, as well as lost some along the way. I’ve participated in blogging carnivals, theme days, contests, and giveaways – even done a few gift guides. I’ve met (virtually, anyway) so many amazing women (and a few men) through blogging. And I’ve learned a great deal about a variety of things – from photography to composting to vegetarian/vegan cooking, from Waldorf education to making butter (a post on that coming soon) to politics, from honesty in blogging to learning you attract more flies with honey than vinegar.

It’s been a fun, interesting and sometimes exhausting ride and I have enjoyed sharing it with you all. I look forward to another year of learning, laughing, sharing and growing together. Before I get too sappy, I just want to say thanks for being here. :)

I know I said I was going to have a giveaway ready for today to celebrate my 3rd blogiversary but time slipped away from me this weekend, between the beautiful and productive day we had on Saturday and Jody’s birthday (brunch with my sis and her beau, making chocolate banana bread and blueberry bread, grocery shopping, making dinner, etc.) on Sunday. So I didn’t get the details ironed out for the giveaway yet, but it will happen soon, probably later this week. Stay tuned.

And now, onto Best Shot Monday…
While I picked up my point & shoot camera often to take a lot of snapshots this week, I didn’t pick up my SLR much except to capture another beautiful sunset out our office/playroom window. We’re fortunate to get such beautiful skies on a regular basis here in CO. This is my best shot for the week.
