Today this blog of mine turns 1 year old! Yes, it's my first blogaversary! I am amazed really that it's gone by so fast. It feels like yesterday when I made the decision to start blogging. After following Little Miss Momma and Momma Go Round I started to think about writing my own blog. Their real life, honest, posts about their daily life, struggles, thoughts being laid out for all to see, was so inspiring to me. I could relate to them and could not wait to read their next post. One day I came across Miss Mommy and she talked about "tantrums" with her girls while out shopping. I felt for her and offered some encouraging words and advice. I was completely blown away when she replied to my comment. She's the first blogger who had ever replied to me. Immediately I felt connected to her and let her know my thoughts about starting my own blog. She told me to go for it and that she would be my first follower and would love to follow along and read what I had to say. So, I went and did some thinking and started my blog that very day on August 14, 2011.
I'm not very good at coming up with names so I had a hard time choosing a blog name. "A Little Piece of Me" came to mind because my goal in starting my blog was to share little pieces of myself to inspire and encourage others. To make others feel like they are not alone and to share how God has used my life experiences to mold me. When we share our lives, others gain hope and perspective. Sometimes just hearing about what someone else has gone through can make a world of difference in someone's life. In my blog the pieces of my life I share are about my daily life, marriage, parenting, faith, hope, pregnancy loss, miscarriage, and more.
My very first post was "Lessons From The Playground".
Here are some of my favorites and most popular posts:
