I just realized that, one year ago today, I started this little ol’ blog. Physically I was miserable. I needed to have back surgery and because of that I was unable to stand or walk, let alone be a mom. On top of that, I still hadn’t lost the baby weight from our youngest (he just turned 2 last week) and was putting on weight from inactivity. A few days later, I had the surgery that I needed and my husband changed jobs. A few weeks later, my son was walking, I was taking the kids on strolls and a few months later started going to the gym and my daughter was in preschool. Since then, I have lost 20 pounds and our children have grown in all aspects (physically, mentally, etc). This has been quite a year. I feel like I have made quite a bit of growth in my real life and made some good friends on Tumblr. Thank you for being a place that I can just put all of my thoughts.
