Happy Birthday, Mamacravings!

Baby Eli on his 2nd birthday

Happy Birthday, mamacravings

One year ago today,  I nervously hit the “publish” button on a new adventure. I started blogging because I wanted a keepsake of sorts for little Eli as he grew. I wanted to share my parenting experience, and I wanted to learn from other parents as we go through this non-mapped journey of parenthood.

The moment I posted my first blog, I was nervous. I wasn’t sure if anyone would read it, would like what I would have to say, or would think I was qualified to say it. But those butterflies were quieted by a drive to keep writing.

To my pleasant surprise, notifications started to blink and have continued to grow. I cannot tell you how thankful I am for your continual sharing of the cravings! Y’all have blessed me so much with your support, emails, comments, likes, shares and tweets. Thank you!

Mamacravings’ “Happy Birthday” is also shared with NonMom. While her blog is a few years more seasoned, mamacravings started as a secret I shared with her about wanting to write. She encouraged me and has answered every silly question I could come up with. When she didn’t know an answer, she worked until she found it. She is a dear friend and a wonderful mentor. Thank you, Amy, for all that you have done for mamacravings and for me. ❤
