I have always loved writing, telling stories, venting about life, love, and children…blogging has given me such an amazing outlet!

It has also been a freaking BIYATCH at times! Let me tell you, blogging is no picnic. There are ups, there are LOTS of downs, there are moments of triumph and feelings of complete failure. I have had days where I am so proud of myself for completing goals, getting published, having great feedback, etc.

And there have been plenty of other days, weeks even, where I have been so close to giving up, to throwing in the towel because putting in hours and hours of work each day for NOTHING was just too hard.$250 Nordstrom Gift Card Giveaway

Yet here, I am, a full year later, still plugging away, still finding enjoyment in posting tidbits and rants, advice and stories. While I am nowhere near where I had hoped to be at this point, I am seeing gains here and there, I am finding solace in increased publication and monetary opportunities. What more can I ask for?

That being said, here is a list of my top 3 posts for my first year blogging!

My favorite part of any meal is dessert, by far!  Summer, however, ruins some of my favorite treats as they are just too heavy for the hot and muggy weather.
