Looking Back: 12 months - 12 posts

It's the last day of 2010.  What a year this has been!  We have moved cities and states, changed jobs, moved into a house, changed blogs ... ok, so that's not the biggest thing ever, lol.

I first started blogging January 2010.  I jumped in head first, awed at what could happen in this wonderful community.  My first blog was Just Thinkin'.  I joined everything I could and got up to 330 followers, but I soon felt like that number was inflated.  I hardly got comments, and I also started really getting into photography ... so I started an offshot photography blog that got up to 60 followers.  Eventually, I felt the need to combine them and start a new place for myself, which was the birth of this blog.  Best decision ever!  I may not have the crazy numbers I had, but I have the loyalty that I wanted here.

I made a list of my favorite blog posts of 2010 and I'm linking up with Scary Mommy and you should too!
So, that being said; many of these posts are on Just Thinkin', but I still wrote them this year so they count.

My Favorite Posts of 2010:

"Turn it Down" -- a cute story of Leah reacting to Audrey screaming her head off in the car.
"Quotable Sunday" -- one of my favorite quotes (I believe in Pink by Audrey Hepburn) with my pictures.
"No one ever asked me..." -- this is my all-time favorite post.  It deals with the questions not asked when I became pregnant with Leah before I was married to Andrew.
"The Identity of a Wife and Mom" -- my thoughts on being a working mom and how my ideals changed when I had kids
"The Mysterious Shot Glass" -- a funny Mommy-brain moment
"My Mr. Wonderful" -- a tribute to my husband on Father's Day
"Talkin' To..." -- funny things Leah said and Andrew talking about peeing the pool
"The Orange Hat" -- Andrew has had the same Orange hat for like 5 years and this post is filled with old and new pictures of him wearing the Orange Hat.
"Where I'm From" -- this was a prompt from Red Writing Hood that I think came together so beautifully
"The ABC's of Me" -- a fun way of introducing myself
"Beauty in the Dirty" -- a 10 on 10 photo post of pictures I took at work; finding beauty in what I do everyday
"Scavenger Hunt: Can you see the Wind?" -- 5 photos that I just love!
