It's a wrap - 2012 edition
Another year passed. I know it's cliché, but where does all this time go? 2012 was good to us as a family - we seemed to have passed a few major kid milestones early in the year and now enjoy life with a very independent 5 and 3 year old.
My blogging year was also good to me - I saw incredible readership and engagement growth and it's so much fun coming to this space three times a week - thank you! This growth is scary to me though as well - it makes we want to do even better, to spend more time on the blog and produce more content. In times like that I have to tell myself that this blog is a hobby; it's a place for me to be creative and share with you - I'm not giving up my day job and I'm not giving up my family for this space, but I do want to do as well as I can with the time and tools that I have. I'm thinking about changes and I'll share those with you once I decide if I want to take the risk.
Here a collection of posts that give a little glimpse of what we were up to:
We added some magic to our garden
We fell in love with Cape Cod
I got to go to New York City and I saw Martha!
We finally finished the dreaded fireplace and lived to tell about it
I'm having fun contributing
Everyone went crazy for these cookie recipes
Our home was featured on Design Mom
We worked on a big boy room
I got to see the Boss
We had a pop-up dinner on the beach
I collected colours
I put together a house tour and invited you over
I tackled another blog on a different platform
We put Easter in a Box
I wanted to ensure that I looked back at all we did - the life we have is great, my family is healthy and happy and I couldn't ask for more. I hope you all had a good 2012 and feel pride in the things you accomplished. Have a great day and I'll see you in the New Year! Cheers!
