My Blogversarie

As of last Sunday this blog of mine is a year old.
Time flies when you're having fun.
I wasn't really sure what I wanted out of this blog when I first started.
All I knew was that it looked like fun!
I would read my incredibly talented friend Corey's blog and I would start thinking in blog post.
I would dream of incredibly insightful and meaningful things to say.
Then I would sit down at the computer and totally F it up!
I'm just not that great of a writer.
Then I would set out to take some awesome photos and make this a photography blog.
But I'm just a mediocre photographer who gets really lucky sometimes.
So instead I write about my life and my family and post some pictures to chronicle it all.
It seems to work for me, it is who I am, average.
This past year has brought me incredible joy watching Bug grow.
It also brought extreme sorrow as I watched my step-mom die.
There have been a lot of changes in my life since she left.
I have asked myself a lot of questions.
Am I living my life how I want to?
Why am I blogging?
Do I spend enough quality time with Bug?
Why the hell do people have to die?
I slowed down my blog posts and tried to focus on real life over the Summer.
I thought about just shutting down the blog.
But in the end I have decided to just give it what I can.
Thank you for sticking around with me.

I'm so glad to have been here with you this year. :) I feel like it has helped us stay connected. :)

I totally get the whole balance thing. WOW...so many cool things to do in this world and so little time to do them. I have been staying up wayyyyyyyyyy too late. Sugar is in bed by 8, and then I mess with pictures and or play online till midnight. eeekkkk....

Happy Anniversary!!!!

Please do stay - even if it's only once a week. I do so LOVE your photos and Bug stories.

I think all of us bloggers dream of posts - I should keep a notepad and pencil next to the bed. I swear I have my best ideas in that zone right before you fall asleep.

I think you're a great writer, Autumn. I love to see your posts pop up...yea, they are sporadic (hmmm, a lot like my own, actually) but I like that. It's like a little present. I'd hate to see you go, so keep on keepin' on!

Happy Anniversary. I'm sorry I missed it. I'm trying so hard to catch up on people's blogs but it's been tough.
I'm glad that you haven't disappeared from the blogosphere and that you still come around.
I would miss you so much.
I think you are a good mom to Bug by the way you write here in the blog and your photos show it, I know that...
You are a kind and gentle person...
I wish I knew why people died and why some get taken away before I had a chance to get to know them better. It's a good question.
I miss Mandy, I only had less than 12 years with her and I'm angry that she died so soon. But we have to keep trudging forward, as hard as it is some days, we just keep going.
