Blog Anniversary!

This Sunday marks my blog anniversary!  Can you guess how long I've been blogging?

10 YEARS!

Isn't that amazing?  During that time many fellow bloggers have stopped blogging, and many have gone on to make a full time business from blogging.  I've done neither!  I've continued to write and share photos of our life, my thoughts, recipes or things I felt were important to say.

Also during that time I've made wonderful friendships.  The kind that let me know that there were kindreds in the world!  

Here is a link to my first post - Welcome!

My kids were so small!  10 years is a long time when your raising kids.  My kids were 17, 15, 13, 7, 4, and 19 months old!  Now they are 27 - married with two daughters, 25 - married, 23 - married with one daughter, 17, 14, and 11.  Several of them have birthdays coming up.

Tim and I are grandparents now!

But we still live in our sweet cottage, still growing in the Lord, and happier together than ever.

Here are my favorite people and how we've changed over the years!




















I love having this blog.  It's like a family history!

  6. Congratulations! You are four months older than I, now that was fun to say. ๐Ÿ˜‰ What fun to see the family change and grow. Some change more than others and some seem timeless. There were some double-takes as I looked through the photos... Lots of fun! Here's to another ten years of blogging...

  15. Congratulations! Like you, I have a shock when I realize how long I have been blogging and how much my little ones have changes since I began. Since I don't journal or photo scrapbook anymore, I like to look through the blog and see what all we've done the past years.
