Wow. I realized that its been a year since I created this blog. When it first started I planned on using it just to post grocery deals, but quickly decided to include parenting stories and pictures of the boys. As the year has progressed I have become a little more comfortable sharing deeper parts of my life, the pain of losing our little boy, the joy of pregnancy and subsequent heartbreak from miscarriage, the trials of raising a child with Autism, and my thoughts on parenting in general. I am a long way from letting it all hang out, but I am working on it. I find it hard to find a balance in telling what I want to share and not offending my very conservative friends and family members. How do you do it? Aside from hiding your blog, how do you find balance? I hope I am growing as a writer, as a mother, and as a blogger. I am proud of myself for keeping it up this long! Here is to another year!
