Thank you for the past six years


Today marks the sixth anniversary (blogiversary) of my blog! Six years of writing about a myriad of topics — some controversial, some very personal, some heartbreaking, some educational, and some just plain fun.

Looking for an outlet to share my passions and ups and downs of parenthood, I started blogging when my daughter Ava was eight months old and have been writing — albeit sometimes more regularly than others — ever since.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you who’ve been a part of my blog over the years — whether you are a reader, a commenter, an advertiser, a sharer, a collaborator, or perhaps a little of each — I have been blessed to make connections with so many of you. Staying at home with my then babies and now kids can be a somewhat isolating experience, but thanks to blogging and other forms of social media, I have a community — a tribe — of which I feel fortunate to belong. We laugh together. We cry together. We share stories, empathize, debate, raise awareness and educate together. You know who you are and I love you all.

For old time’s sake, I thought I’d highlight just a few of the posts that have either meant a lot to me or have received a lot of feedback over the past six years. Here they are, in no particular order.
