1 Year Blogiversary

1 year (and oddly enough, 100 posts) ago, I decided to document all the major life changes that were happening. On July 1st last year, my husband and I moved our of my tiny apartment into our new place together and officially started learning how to be married.

In this past year, I've written about:

Moving into our apartment and our first stupid disagreement
Finding out we were pregnant and then about having a miscarriage
Taking plenty of roadtrips (Maine, Applepicking, and Maryland)
What it's like to commute in NYC

Talked about the NYC subway here, here and here
Picked on my husband a little
Stretched my culinary muscles herehere and here
Reflections and 2013 recap

Revealed that we were pregnant again... and miscarried once more
Baked an amazing pie from scratch
Began process of finding out "why" we miscarried
Found that being pregnant/not pregnant/pregnant/not pregnant has really messed up my hormone levels.
Declared my intentions for weight loss and urban gardening

Started (and completed) blogging from A-Z, with a post every day in April.
Wrote a five day recap of our wedding day, since I wasn't blogging at the time
Briefly recapped our Pacific Coast vacation
Tom and I wrote down what we've learned in our first year of marriage
Learned how to make bread from scratch
Did some recaps on Muir Woods, Seattle CityPass, Vancouver and San Francisco

And for year two, what are my hopes for this blog?
I've switched things up a bit on the blog, and am currently trying to get the banner to stretch across the whole page. Any suggestions would be appreciated, since the 'tech' side of this sometimes has me struggling.

So tell me...
What have you enjoyed reading, or would interest you in the future?


  1. Congratulations, Farin! I just passed my 250th post...all about the milestones. :-) Here's to another fabulous year! :-)

  2. Congrats on your blogiversary! It's always crazy to look back and see how much content you've created over the course of a year.


    1. Thank you! Looking back over the months, it's easy to see how much I picked it up in 2014.

  3. Congratulations on your blogiversary! Plus, I loved your round-up - what a neat way to see all the things that you did this year.

    1. Yes, I definitely am seeing some themes occurring in listing them off like that :)

  4. Congratulations on both milestones. Here's to many more years and posts! I'm going to take a peek at some of the ones you've linked up, too. :)

    1. Thanks! And yes, feel free to browse, I wish I had know of NE Bloggers when I started, I mainly kept it as a diary back in 2013 :)

  5. Congratulations Farin! I've very much enjoyed your stories and experiences over the year. So truly happy I didn't miss this special day and Post! Best Wishes for much success, and in the memories of your life as well!

    1. One of the reasons this blog has enriched my life are the new friends and people who I've found online who (despite being, say, a gourmet chef) still pokes in around my blog where I boast about... making bread. Or pie. Glad to see you here Peggy :)
