10 Photos Past 10

I tried to do this every :10 of the hour, but honestly most of those :10s I was sitting in my doom cube at work. That’s boring so here are 10 photos that may or may not be from :10.

Childhood Photo

Birthday '92 or '93.
Birthday ’92 or ’93.

So any family and some friends know my birthday always merited a GIANT party. I loved these and actually this year, being in Chicago – was the first time I have not had a giant family/friends birthday party in almost 3 decades! It actually made me want to cancel having my birthday this year and move it!

Anyways this was in 1992-1993, a rare picture of Lois in the lime green. My entire extended family is there and I just loved moments like these. Growing up in a larger family made it so that events were GIANT and so fun. One of the few things I miss about living close to them is having these awesome get togethers at least once a month. Since my birthday is in July, we would have my party in the backyard and run wild. Lois would make spaghetti and we would all PIG OUT. My great aunt Nita would always give me PJs which I loved and I would clean up nicely in the toy/game/money department. I always had wonderful birthdays growing up and these pictures from this specific one remind me that maybe summer isn’t so bad.

Share your experience during your first few weeks/months in blogging.

Boy oh boy… when I first started blogging back in ot’ 2012 I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into.

First – I didn’t really have much to say that was concise. Second – I didn’t look at any other blogs which is just ridiculous to me now. I mean, I read two or three, but now every night I spend a good solid amount of time looking through hundreds of blogs, the reader, rss, and bloglovin to see what’s happening in this world. Third – I thought people were just going to gravitate to my blog with no publicizing. I’m sure I’ve irritated my Facebook friends by this point, but if you’re my friend look at my blog. If you’re not – hide me from your news-feed.

Overall I have grown so much from the first post. I’ve had so many different events happen from loss, heartache, unemployment, and a bad attitude to love, light, Chicago, and an open heart. My blog still centers around the main stuff – animals, tattoos, my life, and sometimes food and has recently EXPLODED with crafts.

When I first started I knew I was going to love blogging, but I couldn’t tell you how fun it has been sharing the past year and half on here.

Next stop a nice camera!
