It is so hard for me to believe that it’s been two years since I hit published and started this blog. Thanks to my very possessed dishwasher I have gone from a woman who didn’t even have an email address to a woman who now co-owns and edits an online magazine.
Never could I have imagined what starting this blog would mean for me.
I made a promise to myself that each week, come rain, shine or kids throwing up, I would publish one essay a week.
Each time I got a new follower or a new comment I felt as if I won the lottery. I never expected to feel so connected to people I never met in person.
But mostly, I could not believe that anyone would take a minute out of their day to read what I wrote about my life as a mom, wife and of course owner of a crazed appliance.
Me? A writer? Of a Blog?
My kids didn’t even know I knew how to work a computer. They were pretty impressed at first and loved when I would put them in the blog. We even celebrated with a cake when I reached 100 followers!
It is with mixed feelings, and a little bit of fear, that I unplug my possessed dishwasher. But, it’s time.
For those of you who are regular readers, you know that “Damion” does not like to be ignored. I’m guessing that the repairman will be making a few visits in the weeks to come.
I am also very excited for this new chapter in my life.
Bonbon Break is growing and is such a fun place to hang out and find new sites to explore and enjoy. I love what my partners and I have created over there. If you have not checked it out yet, come on over!
We have a great issue this week full of ideas for the kitchen, family room, bedroom, playroom, mom cave and backyard. Plus, there is my recipe for preparing the one thing that I never see in any magazine or blog: The children! Kinder Souffle: How to prep your kids for Thanksgiving!
