A little recap. My one year in the bloggy world.

Sometimes I shared the not so pretty in my life.
(Do you know what Lake Stink is?)

And often I shared what I was in love with.

I started Apricot A Lot, designing custom bags and totes!

I started my not-every-Sunday-posting called Church Chat.
Read them all here.

Kids Medford Temple

Sometimes a Recipe.

I started a series of posts about my childhood here's the first one.
(That's the only one I did...it's coming, I promise!)


I was syndicated once, Namiste.
(See the article over at the Title Nine.com Blog)

Oh yeah.. I started a little thing called #GNO over on Twitter? Heard of it?

And that little thing has turned into a full-fledged teenager complete with gangly-ness and zits sometimes (don't ask about the new website that STILL isn't complete!) We call the whole thing 'Mom It Forward' have a look! Hope to see you on Tuesday nights for #GNO, where we do Girl's Night Out, Twitter style...!

Thanks for joining me. I am better because of you.

Great way to summarize what your bloggy year has been like. Nice job!

Boy - geez oh geez. I knew your year had been busy and full of new avenues, but when you lay it all out like that - I'm impressed. You must need a nap! Or a vacation - yeah, that's better. You need a nap while on vacation after that year!

You should be very very proud of yourself. And remember - we're better because of you, too!

Looking forward to more pics of you during your childhood :)
