1 Year! Favorite Post Round Up

The blog is 1 today! can you believe that? I still feel really new to blogging (and, I am). But I don't know where last year went.  Here are a few things that have happened in the year of blogging:

- I started blogging
- My M turned 1
- I started running again
- I got the hang of running with asthma (and now don't even need my inhaler)
- I made a lot of goals
- I lost some loved ones
- I learned a lot.

This year hasn't been all super easy. There have been a lot of days that I kind of feel like giving up. But I've learned a lot. And a lot of what I've learned has come from you guys. Thank you for reading and commenting. Your support has been amazing for me.

Here is a little recap of the top 10 most read posts on All These Things. 

Goal update: Running

When I finally hit that 3 mile mark again.  It's seriously surprising how easy it is to lose all the endurance you've worked for.  It's also super frustrating. Making this goal was huge for me because I proved to myself that I still had it in me to push myself. I'm so thankful for my body and my health so that I can run! 

More Than Just a Stay At Home Mom

Sometimes people say rude things. And sometimes I take those things too close to heart.  After years of hearing/feeling that I'm not good enough at being a mom and wife because I stay home, I realized they were all wrong. 

Our Halloween 

Last years costumes! I still can not get over how cute these sweeties were. I wish I could have them be this all over again. Oh well, this year will be good too.

Saying Goodbye is Hard

We said goodbye to my amazing Grandpa this year.  In processing all the emotion, I shared a little bit about him and his funeral. He was a hero and a great person in every aspect of life.
