Happy 4!

Anyone know what last Monday was? Monday was a very special day. It means nothing as far as my relationship with my husband. My kid isn't four. In fact Monday probably meant nothing to anyone else except me. Monday meant that I have been blogging for four years. And some of you have been around for [almost] all of them! Isn't that's nuts? That's down right crazy!

Four years! That's a long time! Heck, that's longer than I've been married. But if you'll remember,
that was part of my inspiration of starting this blog was to share details of wedding planning, which I did very poorly. In fact, I really didn't know what I was doing when I started this. I didn't know where it was going. I didn't really have a point in it. I didn't really want anyone to read it.


But now here we are, four years later, and I'm sharing everything with the world. Well, almost everything. I open our lives up every day to share with family, friends and unknown readers from all over. And I happily do so. I love that people are interested. Although sometimes I swear you guys only come here for the Addison pictures....

I won't hold it against you, she is pretty cute.

I have been able to share my life as a married lady, my life as a Marine wife, my life as a software engineer's wife (although I don't really write about that because it's not quite as exciting, it's just the 9-5 job but it's the most important one since it pays the bills), my life as a mom. I have shared my journey learning to cook. I shared my pregnancy with you. I shared Addison's birth story and her entire life. I have shared our sadness and loss. This blog has become part of our every day life.

And right now I have no plans to stop. I plan to keep sharing. With plans for another kid, heck with the one I currently have, there may be days I miss here and there which I think you'll forgive me for. But I want to keep sharing. I want to keep documenting. This is as much for me as is it is for everyone that reads it. I want to look back and remember those random weekends that I might not have taken pictures for had I not needed a post for Monday. I want to remember the random things that Stella did. Or the funny story involving Addison. I can look back and remember all those things now and every single time I open back up D.G. and start going back through old posts, I discover something and remember something I had long forgotten.

I have no idea what's next for our story. I know we have plans. Not many I want to share right now. There will be things we definitely don't have planned to. But as long as you keep coming back then I'll keep sharing. Okay so truth be told, if everyone stopped reading right now, I would probably still keep sharing.

I have learned a lot in my four years of blogging. I have become a better writer (I think). I have found my voice. I have found my focus. I have enjoyed it all.

This our beautiful mess and I love sharing it with you. Happy four years to Defying Gravity.
