Year of Selfies

Today I have been blogging for ONE year!  I can’t believe it!  ONE whole year!!!

I have so many people ask me all the time why I blog.  My answer is simple; it’s my online scrapbook and a place where I can look back at how our every day life was.  It is also a place my girls can look at when they are older to see memories from their childhood.

I don’t apologize for blogging.  Sometimes I take criticism from people for sharing too much and there have been comments made about people saying I think I am “above everyone else” is why I blog.  Those comments hurt, but I just shrug them off and don’t let it get to me.  I blog for myself and to have a place where I can go to just be “me”.  I also tell those people if you don’t like it, don’t read it.

Blogging is a great way to write down all of my thoughts and feelings and share a little of our life with my family and friends.  I’m thankful for all of you that continue to encourage me with my blog and support me by reading it every time I post.  I’ve also made friends from all around the U.S. through blogging!

ANYWAYS, enough of that talk.  I thought it would be cool to share a blog post today that has all of our #selfieSundays in it from the past year.  I have faithfully made my family endure a selfie every Sunday for the past 52 weeks {except a few weeks here and there}.

It is so fun to look back on and see how much the girls have changed.  I plan to do these #selfieSundays until the girls graduate and move out of the house.  If they will let me, I will take them even when they are grown and have families of their own if they are with me and Chris on a Sunday.  LOL

Enjoy!  {I made sure these were in order of how they were taken}

SO many memories with these pictures.  Chris says I should’ve done a post of all the outtakes, because those are better.  I promise we look like we have our act together in these selfies, but our life is crazy and blessed!  I’m so thankful for my family.
