Can you believe that little ‘ol me has had this blog for a year now? I started it because blogging intrigued me and I seemed to have nothing but time while I was sitting, nursing my baby for what felt like hours on end. Now, I have an active one year old and not quite as much time, but I am still loving it! I have had a lot of fun, getting to know so many of my readers and fellow bloggers! I so appreciate you joining me out here in blogland and I’m already concocting ideas of what this next year will be bringing!
Here’s a little timeline of the past year and some of my most popular posts!

September 30th, 2011: Build Your Own Dining Room Table.
I was big pregnant when we built this thing, but I knew that we weren’t going to be able to fit our big family around our little 4 seater table any more! It was time for a new design! One of these days I’ll get a better picture of this thing in our dining area!
