Four Whole Years!

blogging

Four whole years ago I sat down and wrote my first ever blog post for This Mummy Loves… It wasn’t the most inspiring blog post I have ever written but it was the beginning…

The beginning of a wonderful four years full of fantastic friendships and amazing opportunities! I didn’t think it would last this long when I first started but it has and I’m hoping to continue for at least another four years.

I love to go back through my archives reading about the things we have done and seeing how my lovely family has grown up. This blog and all of you have really helped me through some really difficult times. Times when if it hadn’t have been for my lovely blogging friends I wouldn’t have had anyone else to turn to!

So a HUGE thank you to everyone that has stopped by in the past fours years, especially those that have stuck by me all the way, through thick and thin!

Blogging is a wonderful experience, I have seen awful things happen in the blogosphere but with those horrible things I have seen an amazing community come together time and time again to support their fellow bloggers who need them! I am so proud to be a part of that!

My favourite post – I actually cannot choose just one but this from Disney’s Enchanted Christmas is probably my favourite opportunity that my blog has brought me so I will say that is my favourite for now 🙂

My saddest post – My not so Silent Sunday.

The most amazing thing I have done because of this blog is arrange Grayson’s Trike auction and raise over £2,000 for gorgeous little Grayson for a special trike for him. Knowing he is still having fun on it two years later makes me so happy 🙂
