Two Years Later

I had almost forgotten that I started this blog two years ago today. Initially, it was meant to be an online diary, a place for me to focus more on me and to make the healthiest choices for me and my family. And then I discovered the blogging community – a wonderful, supportive group of people. Thank you for being part of my life!

While I have struggled at times with finding the right blog/life balance, I am so glad that I started this blog and wish I had started sooner. When it comes to this blog, I now do what fits into my life at the moment, which often means less time plugged in and more time living. I don’t worry about documenting everything anymore or blogging a certain number of times per week. I do what works. Sounds easy enough, but it took me some time to get to this point…  I guess I had to learn that, like with pretty much everything in life, more is not necessarily better… Smile

Here are some of the reasons why I love this blog so much:
  • By starting this blog, I found many wonderful blogs which have inspired me, challenged me, made me laugh, think and take action. Thank you!
  • It helped me organize and keep track of my recipes (at least some of them…).
  • I love seeing the toddler grow up on my blog!
Here is one of the first photos of the toddler on the blog:

  • My cooking and video projects really get the toddler involved in the kitchen. And I plan on involving him more and more…
  • My blog even inspired hubby to start his own blog, and he has cooked a few meals on his own and is also getting more and more involved in the kitchen! I love it!
  • And you, of course, whom I love interacting with via comments and e-mails. Thank you for being part of my life!
Questions: When did you start reading blogs? If you have a blog, when did you start your blog? What do you like most about blogging/reading blogs?
Be well,
