This Time Last Year...

Every once in awhile I like to look back on what I posted over the last few years. Today just happens to be one of those days.

Going all the way back to 2011, I didn't actually post on the 28th but I did post on the 27th which is the closest date. On the 27th in 2011 I posted "The More That You Read, The More Things You Will Know. The More that You Learn, The More Places You'll Go." -Dr. Seuss all about what I was reading and having a hard time believing that people don't read. I read every day and I can't remember a time in my life when I wasn't in the middle of a book or about to start a new book. So it's a completely foreign thing for me to imagine people who don't read.

In 2012, I was doing regular posts about my adventures in cooking as part of my series How to Boil Water. I have since discontinued that series except for the occasional A Week of Dinners because I no longer struggle through cooking every single meal. At that point I was still trying to find my voice through Defying Gravity and that included cooking. Over time I found that I wasn't as interested in writing about my cooking adventures, nor were my readers as interested in those posts as evident in the pageviews. But on this day four years ago, I did do a cooking post: How to Boil Water: Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits. Apparently I was also trying to figure out how to take decent pictures.


In 2013, we had just added a little girl into our lives and there were a lot more posts about her. Those, of course, are some of my favorites. On this day three years ago, my little girl was 15 weeks and we were working on her holding up her own head. As a first time mom I was proud of every single thing she did. Turns out I'm still proud of every single thing and I'll be just as proud of every single thing Connor does as well. That's sort of my job. But on this day I wrote I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar, including a group of cute pictures of my favorite lady.


In 2014, I was writing about cooking and food still, but this time it was all about what I was feeding my kid. On this day I wrote On the Kid's Table: Hidden Veggie Mac & Cheese. This happens to continue to be one of our favorites around here. I have since stopped writing this series as well because Addison eats what we eat and for lunches, I don't do anything fancy. Maybe it will make a comeback once Connor comes back and I go back to having to deal with purees and baby food again - we'll just have to see. I do highly recommend this mac & cheese. It is definitely more work than box mac & cheese but it's healthier and delicious.


So there you have it. Apparently I didn't have very interesting posts to write about on this day for the last five years. But there you have it.

xo, B
