My first blog post was one year ago today!
My blogging has gone through phases of greater and lesser activity over that time. I didn't blog as much in the last portion of that year as I did the first. I'm not sure if it was due to winter doldrums or the effects of pregnancy. It may even have to do with the fact that I like to post pictures with my posts, and I just don't have as many fun photo opportunities when the weather is poor and we're confined indoors, or aren't taking as many trips. I do love having documentation of the last year of my and my family's life. A lot has happened in this past year: having a new baby, fun family trips, milestones in my children's lives, becoming Primary President, a new motorcycle...
To celebrate, I was going to leave links to some of my favorite posts from the last year. But, instead, I am going to link to this post. It seems that the world of the world wide web is small indeed. The boy I admitted to having a crush on in 6th grade found my blog post about him and left a comment! I suppose including his full name in the post made his finding it very possible, although it certainly did not occur to me at the time. Anyways, Brant, if you happen to come back, thanks for the visit, the comment, and for outgrowing that hairdo! (And I hope you are well, too!)
On a side note, I started my new year's resolution "to get back into shape after the baby comes" today. I took before pictures to help inspire me. For a moment I considered posting them here. You, know, for the accountability thing. Then thought better of it. They are not pleasing to be viewed. But, more importantly, the previously mentioned incident clinched my decision. I'm pretty sure, "Hey, I used to have a crush on you, and check out this pouch I've got now..." is not the message I'm trying to promote here!
