Belated Blog o'versary

What.the.heck. I missed my one year blog anniversary!! I don't know how I let that happen, ya'll. I haven't been feeling the blog thang a ton lately, I suppose? Hubs just started going to law school at night and I feel like three-ish weeks in and I'm still adjusting to my new job...

But still, I had this whole post planned for my one year and then, our internet went out. For like two weeks! And I hate blogging from my phone. Then Gigi decided it'd be cool to gnaw on the adapter for my laptop. Again. Seriously...One of these days she's going to electrocute herself and I don't even know what I'll do. She's such a (literal) bitch ;)

...ANYWAYS....

For real I cannot believe it's been a little over ONE year since I started this blog!! I've met some wonderful people in the real world, and made some great friends via email/facebook and the like...it's unreal.

I know most people say after a blog anniversary, "I started out writing this to document my life...blah blah blah, but made so many friends, too!"....well, I am a cliche here, because I too started this little ol' blog to document my life as a newlywed. Dealing with trials, tribulations and tests at times made me think I wouldn't be a newlywed for much longer....

This time last year, J and I were ready to kill each other. And look, there are two sides to every story and even when we talk about it a year later, we have different ahem, opinions  of the past. But mostly, we're in such a great place. Nothing in life is ever perfect. But I am pretty effing happy with my husband and our life and can't wait for what the future holds for us.

I can't believe that in just this past year, I've lost a job, got a new job, planned a few grand parties, got a doggy dog, watched my little sis get married, saw my other little sis graduate college...met some ah-mazing ladies in Tampa Bay through blogging, took a kick ass cruise to Jamaica/Grand Caymen....I could go on and on. But I won't.

It all started with this first post. So much has changed in just this one year. That IS the real reason I started this blog. Some days life seems so mundane and its easy to forget things; my blog helps me to remember our life. I haven't really looked back much at it though and I think I need to do that, soon.

...and my friends! Man, what a flippin' amazing bunch you all are! I love my followers. Ya'll have been there for me and emailed me when you could relate and I felt SO much better about things hearing from other gals like me. You have no idea how much that has meant to me and will continue to mean to me <3

I could go on and on, but I have no fun photos or much else to say. But I can't believe this little hobby has changed a lot of things for me in ways I never would have thought. I've made such awesome friends and learned some things about myself in the process. I'm not a writer by any means, but this blog of mine has become an outlet for me and for someone that has so many effin' thoughts at any one time, this has been almost therapeutic for me...

So thanks for reading, thanks for the love, and thanks for...well being my  friends.

Cheers!!
XOXO

  4. Hi there! Just stumbled across your blog...happy blog-o-versary!!!

    I can relate to feeling like killing your husband sometimes...I think all newlyweds probably go through that phase! My husband and I have been married for almost 2.5 years. Feels like less some days (the fighting days) a feels like more some days (the I-swear-we've-known-each-other-forever! days) but definitely wouldnt' trade it for the world!!
