3 little ladies and me is one!

A year ago today I nervously pressed publish on my first blog post. Since then I have published 79 other posts about our adventures, the things we love and my musings on motherhood. I truly love my little corner of the internet, it's been wonderful in so many ways.

Over the last year it's provided an outlet for my thoughts, somewhere to store and treasure my memories and encouraged me to use my very tired brain and learn a new skill. I have grown and developed my blog all by myself and feel really proud of that. I never really expected anyone to read it other than my mum and the fact that lots of you do is just amazing. I hope that my posts are useful and that you can relate to them. I'll never forget the first time someone emailed me to tell me they enjoyed reading my posts on life with my girls and thanked me for my honesty. Honesty is something you'll always find here, particularly when it comes to motherhood, because after all we are all in this together and if me being honest helps someone else then that's great.

Blogging has introduced me to a whole amazing community I didn't know existed this time last year. The blogging community is so friendly, welcoming and helpful. There are thousands of people tapping away at their keyboards out there and I never known a group of people to champion each other more. I have learnt so much from other bloggers such as Aby from You Baby Me Mummy who has hundreds of helpful 'blogging how to' posts and vlogs. I've also loved linking up with Katy from Hot Pink Wellingtons and Laura from Dear Bear and Beany for their weekly 'Sharing the blog love' and have been so proud to have had my posts featured in their weekly showcase. I've also proudly contributed to the Selfish Mother Blogzine and charity Kicks Count blog. I attended my first blogging conference in September - 'FunFest' - which I took the girls along to. It was amazing to hear more seasoned bloggers like Honest Mum speak and I came away feeling really inspired.

Since starting my blog I've had the opportunity to collaborate with some wonderful brands and visit some brilliant places. I love sharing reviews of days out with you all as well as featuring products that make life easier for parents or that the little ladies love and I'm looking forward to some exciting partnerships in the New Year. Please do get in touch if you'd like to work with us.

Thank you all so much for reading my little blog and for taking the time to comment on my posts here or on social media, it really does mean the world to me. As many of my regular readers will know, I have returned to work this week after a 5 year break at home with the little ladies but will be continuing to write my blog. If there is anything you'd like me to write about please do just let me know as I like to write content that's of interest to you.

I hope you enjoy the little peek into our lives as I share my experiences with you. I'm off for a slice of celebratory blog-anniversary cake and a glass of something fizzy.
