Happy Birthday Baby Blog!

My phone alarm went off yesterday and up popped this little note:

Grandma & Grandpa on my background šŸ™‚


My one year bloggiversary! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? Well, I’m sure you can, but I can’t! Where does a year go?

When I first started this blog I was really quite scared and nervous. The internet can be a very cruel and mean place, and it was hard for me to grasp the idea of putting myself out there and being judged on a daily basis by people I don’t know. Starting a blog was something I had considered for a long time, and eventually I decided that it didn’t matter what anyone else thought– the outward negativity of others is almost always an issue of their own internal struggle, and I couldn’t let that hold me back. And so here I am, 1 year later and blogging on with a happy face. I’ve met so many fantastic people through blogging, I’m really thankful that I was able to let go of my insecurities and go for it anyway!

Some of my favourite posts over the past year include:

So! Just wanted to say thank you to my readers– friends, family and strangers, for encouraging me to keep on blogging and sharing my passion. I know it’s still just a tiny blog, but I kind of prefer it that way. It’s my cozy little space where I can do what I want!
I hope you’ll hang around for another year!



  1. Congrats! I’m glad you love blogging so much because I love reading you! I hope I’m still going by the time one year rolls around, I feel like I have gotten a lot out of blogging too šŸ™‚

    • Aw, thanks Devon!! I’m sure you will! If nothing else, you have a journal for your future kids to read, right? Hah!

  2. Congratulations on the bloggiversary!! Hey, there’s a new word for Webster’s, hehe

    I met Josh at work and he told me about your blog, and even though I’m nowhere near as fit (or disciplined!) as you are, I love reading :). You write with such passion and humour, I love it šŸ™‚

    Keep it up – here’s to another year!!

    • Thanks so much Jen! Hahah I’m glad I don’t just amuse myself when I write (serious concern, hahah). Thanks so much for reading! Maybe I will meet you soon! (Patio season, weee!)
