1 Year Blogger-versary

The celebration of my 1 Year Blogger-versary begins by reflecting on 5 of my most memorable posts in the past year.  While other posts pop into my mind as well, these five stand out to me. 

My 5 Most Memorable Blog Posts of the Past Year (in no special order)

1.  Good News!   Good News is simple and sweet, but it ranks high on the most memorable blogs of the past year simply because it was the first step into my life as a blogger!

2.  Meet Me On Monday: Romantic Notions  Sharing a part of myself through "Meet Me On Monday" is something I need to do again soon.  This particular post is such a special memory for me and I can't help but lovingly reflect on how I felt during that time in my life. 

3.  Never Forgotten   I made a promise that my friend, Dennis, would never be forgotten.  I wrote this blog post in honor of his sacrifice.  He was killed in Iraq in July of 2006.

4.  Breaking The Chain of Domestic Violence  When I decided to blog about this topic, I felt that sharing my story might make a difference in the life of someone else.  No matter how difficult the subject matter was to tackle, it was worth posting if it helps just one person. 

5.  The Family Lighthouse  This small tribute to Nana was certainly a very memorable post in the past year.  What an absolute blessing it has been for me to be able to know my husband's Nana.
Leave a comment under this post and let me know what memorable posts (these or others) you enjoyed this past year.  OR What is one of your own memorable moments (or blog posts if you are a blogger) over the past year?


  1. My favorite was the smurfs post :)

    Congrats on your blogoversary!!!

  2. I really liked your tribute to your husband's Nana. That was such a beautiful post. Congrats on one year of blogging!! Hasn't it gone fast? And those are really beautiful bookmarks! You are so creative! :-)

  3. Think I have read them all and they have all made an impact - love the glimce into CMOM life. Aunt Nancy

  4. The tribute to your hubby's nana was very touching. Congrats on your one year blogoversary!

  5. I remember the post on abuse that you wrote. Very powerful. I know someone was helped from your story. That is quite the record cover there. Beautiful hair and makeup. Wow girl!!!

  6. I just read your post "NEVER FORGOTTEN" and thought it was lovely. It made me smile and it brought tears to my eyes. What a nice way to honor his memory.

  7. Breaking the chain of Domestic Violence is my favorite because I think it takes a lot of courage to post that and worry about family backlash. You are a wonderful mother to your boys.

  8. I just spent some time on A winners post will be up at 7am! :) Thanks for all the wonderful comments!

    Jodi- She was a great woman.

    Diane- It's wonderful to think someone was helped! :) I had help with the hair in makeup back then. lol

    Jennifer- I'm thankful to be able to honor him. :)

    Robyn- The backlash is worth it if it makes a difference for someone else.
