Eleven months ago, my life was finally getting back on track after the year that turned our lives upside down. My daughter was a year old, and we had settled into a routine of life with a baby… one that included a night nurse and NG tube, but still getting more normalized by the day. After hyper-focusing on her needs for so long and ignoring mine, I decided I needed an outlet for the ideas and thoughts bouncing around in this head of mine. And so… a blog was born!
I wrote about Blackberry Picking and Books and Pumpkins. I shared Freebies and Cheapies, and gave a small glimpse into our life. I even set out an industrious plan to Refresh My Nest, month by month. Oh, the places we’ll go!
Then, we had a little surprise. A happy, little surprise. Which, of course, turned into a big surprise nine months later. Since pregnancy is so hard on my body, the recipes stopped. I had to selectively Refresh My Nest. The dozens of projects I have lined up in my project bin have taken a back burner to holding my sweet but high-maintenance baby boy once he arrived.
It’s amazing what can happen in a year.
In August, this blog turns a year old. I had no idea when I began what life would be like just 12 months later! In celebration, I’m planning a month of fun things for us. I’m giving this blog an overhaul by finally getting it professionally designed. I’ll have giveaways and a party or two. I’d love your ideas for what a Making Lemonade blogoversary looks like… what would you like to see on here, both for the blogoversary and long-term? You input means so much!
