It's hard to believe it, but one year ago today I started Beyond the Dinner Table!
This year of blogging has had it's ups and downs—with me often wondering if I was in over my head or a little crazy putting myself out there. But it's YOU, my readers, that make me want to keep writing. All your comments and encouragement mean the world to me! I also know that there's more that God wants me to share and learn through this blog experience. And finally, it's the ongoing support from my two "editors," namely my hubby and my mom, that bring me down to earth and remind me why I wanted to start this blog in the first place when I need it most.
So to celebrate my one-year blogiversary, I'm sharing 5 favourite posts from my first year of blogging! (Oh, and you'll want to keep reading to hear about my blogiversary GIVEAWAY...)
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas from my family to yours. May the joy of Christ's birth and the peace only He can bring be with you today and into this coming year!
Three Christmases ago, back in 2013, I remember spending hours on Pinterest, “pinning" the countless ways I planned to be an intentional mom during the Christmas season. I was debating whether I was going to do a chocolate Advent calendar or wrap up twenty-five Christmas books for the days leading to Christmas. I believed I'd be the creative mom making the cute felt tree for my toddler to decorate--or maybe even be gutsy enough to let him or her decorate our real tree. I dreamed up fancy holiday brunches and elaborate Christmas traditions to start as a family. And then Liam came.
And the exhaustion.
