A year ago today, I published my first post to this little blog. My vision for the blog was a place to document our newlywed life, diy projects, and tons of recipes. I wrote my initial post and, later, a post about Easter (since deleted due to technical difficulties). Then, I put the blog on the back burner until I had more content to share. Little did I know, just over a month after my first post, our world would be rocked.
It was at one of my lowest points post-tornado that I realized I needed to share the story. I just started typing and a new post was published. I poured my heart into that post, and, before I knew it, Love You Muches had become my outlet. This is my little corner to share my faith, share our life, and write what’s on my mind.
I’ve said it before, but Love You Muches gave me back my love of writing. I will forever be grateful for that. I am thankful for everyone who reads this blog – family, friends, and readers I don’t know personally. Thank you for your encouragement and love.
There is one person who deserves a special shout out on Love You Muches’ birthday. To M, thank you for being the husband you are. Thank you for supporting this hobby of mine. Thank you for listening to me as I bounce ideas for the blog around. Thank you for not rolling your eyes when I talk about blogging and for understanding how important this outlet is to me. Without you, there would be no Love You Muches.
A year ago I would have never imagined that I would love blogging as much as I have. So much has happened in my life this past year. I am not the same person who wrote that first post on March 22, 2011. There have been mountains I’ve climbed and mountains I’m still climbing. Despite everything, this has been a great year. Things will only get better. Life is good!
