Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to you.  Happy Birthday to you.  Happy Birthday, Dear BLOG, Happy Birthday to you!

Today is my blog’s very first birthday!  I can’t believe it!  This experience has been so amazing.  April 13, 2015, I began this little blog called The Memoirs of a Housewife.  Had you told me that in exactly one year I would be boarding a plane to go out West for a book tour for  a book I wrote and I published, I would have thought you were being overly optimistic.  Yet, here I am at 2:00 getting ready to head to the airport to do just that!

I am so thrilled I listened to my true core self about my desires and wants in this life instead of listening to my self-doubt and fears.  We only have this one life.  This isn’t a “practice life”.  We don’t get any do-overs.

I feel so amazed that it has been a year!  Many more to come as I continue to fall further in love with my husband and my Studious, Clever, Dapper and Spicy.  Much more self-discovery and self-enhancement is coming your way.  Life is happening here and it is a blessing.  I am thankful for it all.

I am reminded of these smart words from Karen Lamb that I thought to myself one year ago today when I was nervous and hesitant to hit the “Publish” button on this blog for the first time.  “A year from now you will wish you had started today.”

Well, I hit “Publish” and now a year later, I am so grateful to have no regrets or wasted time.  Get on with your getting on, people.  Life is happening here.  It is a blessing for sure!

I’ll check in from the Wild West Book Tour!  XOXO

  2. Happy Birthday to your blog !  You hit the nail on the head with your comments about having only one life to live, no do overs, etc. There is a lot to be said for the phrase, Carpe Diem…..None of us are promised another day so make each day count.  Sate travels for an exciting experience! Sue
