On September 18, 2004, before I became a mother, before all of these people I love died, before “Call Me Maybe” happened to the world, before “mommy blogger” was a term, before I left the world of reality television, before I met all of you, I published the very first post on this blog.
Below is a short photo time capsule. I wasn’t as good at cataloguing pictures at that time because I didn’t yet have the blogger mindset that everything is a blog post. Now? Obvs.
So, thanks for hanging out with me for 8 years. Enjoy:
At our friends’ wedding in September 2004. Kyle is in there. I am a brand new blogger.
Hanging out with Frida in our spit-up free house. There was dog hair everywhere. 16 weeks pregnant.
And I included this as a true time capsule. This would normally be a throwaway picture, right? But I’m so happy I found it because it’s a glimpse into our everyday pre-kid life. What you see above that is so 2004:
