Celebrating 5 Years of Blogging

Wow! It's my 5th blogiversary! I've been so busy with everything around here that I actually forgot about it until I saw some kind congratulations on Facebook.


I'd like to thank you, wonderful readers, for taking the time to read my posts over the years. I'd also like to thank you for your comments and for sharing my posts on social media. You guys are awesome!


Unfortunately, I haven't been posting as much on my blog this past year as in previous years. Last year was an incredibly busy and eventful year in our family. Two of our children got married, we bought a new-construction home, put our old home on the market, sold it, found a rental home to live in while our new home was being built, moved to our rental home, and then moved to our new home a couple of weeks ago.

We are still in the process of unpacking. This photo was taken almost a week ago. I was actually able to unpack several of thosee boxes and the pile was getting smaller. Unfortunately, the pile has grown again since we moved boxes inside from the garage last night. Sigh....It will be so nice to finally have everything unpacked. It really takes a lot of time to find new places for everything after moving to a new home.

So, with all that's been going on, something had to give, and that something was writing in my blog. Once things settle down and I get back into a somewhat more normal routine, I will hopefully get back to blogging on a more regular basis.


Here are some highlighted posts from last year (since my last blogiversary):
