It's My Blog Birthday!
Normal Everyday Life is turning ONE! It's been a whole year since I started this blog. What fun it's been to put my thoughts out there and have people relate and respond to them!
Just in case you missed my first post, Am I Normal?, here's an excerpt that I hope I've lived up to this year...
I like to read about normal life, the things that happen everyday. Things that make me say, "Oh, I can relate to that!" The posts that stick in my mind the longest and keep me coming back to read a blogger are the ones that inspire the feeling that she's just like me. She's had those "losing it" moments where the house is a wreck, there's nothing for dinner, and the kids are talking back. She knows what it's like to fail as a wife, a parent, a friend. And she's gotten back up, said she's sorry, and started all over again.
I started this blog to document my life, to celebrate the big and small moments, but I've loved hearing about the lives of others as well! I've "met" other bloggers that I enjoy checking in with regularly in other parts of the United States and even in other countries. It's sort of weird that I'll find myself wondering how a situation in their family turned out or what color they've decided to paint their kitchen. I guess that just proves the power of the written word. It's an amazing window into a writer's world!
Today I want to say a big "THANK YOU" to everyone who reads and comments on my posts. I really appreciate you spending a part of your day with me! I hope you'll keep visiting me here for another year!
