Back to the Beginning....

This week on SITS they’re hosting a Back2Blogging challenge/giveaway to encourage people to get back into the swing of blogging. Today’s task is to re-publish my very first post and share my thoughts on it. I’m linking up my post on SITS and entering to win a brand new washer and dryer. The giveaway is sponsored by Standards of Excellence, Westar Kitchen and Bath, and Florida Builder Appliances.

Since I have been seriously lacking in the blogging department lately, I figured that this couldn't hurt.  Plus I have a few new followers (amazingly enough...hi!) that might find this insight into why I started my blog helpful.  The link to my first post is here.

Re-reading that post I can't help but laugh.  First's horribly cliche.  I felt like I was reading my middle school journal.  Secondly, the facts from that first post were almost all changed so I feel like reading that didn't get you much more information about me except that I'm getting married...the date changed, the venue changed, my job changed, my STATE get the idea.

What was fun for me in reading that though was to re-read my engagement story.  Day to day, it's easy to forget how lucky I am to have hubby in my life and despite that fact that there are days that I want to murder him, I really love him.  It's also amazing to me how much my life has changed since I wrote that first post a few years ago.  I have had 2 new addresses, 2 new jobs, and 2 new pets.  I got married, bought a house, and got pregnant.  And it's all recorded here for posterity.  If that thought doesn't get me back into bloggy mode, I don't know what will.
