One Year Ago Today...


One year ago today, I started up this space. I was just a couple of months into being a stay-at-home mom. I was looking for a creative outlet and a space to share some of the fun things the girls and I were doing. I was already a reader of many fun kid blogs and wanted my own space.


One year ago today, this space was called My Creative Family. But, along the way, this changed. I decided to buy my own domain and discovered that someone else already owned My Creative Family. So, I pondered my dilemma and thought about new names. I was nervous to change, but I finally convinced myself I should. My Creative Family became Creative Family Fun. 


One year ago today, my husband was the only one reading my blog. Today, there are over 1000 of you. Thank you! I know I don't say it enough, but I appreciate each and every one of you. I appreciate your comments, your sharing, your Facebook likes, and your Pinterest pins. Today, I not only blog for myself, but for you as well. I hope you continue to enjoy and find value in what I write.

One year ago today, I was in this alone. Today, I am happy to say that I have friends from all over the world. Friends that I can ask blogging-related questions to. Friends that support me as I support them. Friends that celebrate with me. Friends that are full of advice for both my blog and parenting. Friends that I am so thankful to have in my life. 


One year ago today, I was thankful for this space and the opportunity to self-publish. Today, I am still thankful for that. I'm thankful for the opportunities that have come my way because of this space. I'm thankful for the people I've met and the friends I've made because of this space. I'm thankful for all the fun activities the girls and I have done because of this space. But, most of all, I'm thankful for you.

Thank you!
