Today Sadie is hanging out with her penguin pals because yesterday we had the biggest snowstorm of the year and no one wants to go outside. We love watching the snowflakes and admiring the peaceful beauty of snow from inside the house. But Sadie agrees that during weather like this we need to make our own fun indoors. So Sadie is spending some time with the penguin stuffed animals, which are part of a rotation of toys I keep in storage so that they seem fun and interesting when I bring them out once in a while.
So I got this cute new hair bow for Sadie, which I’ve decided looks like a zebra flower. Of course the first thing I want to do is take some pictures of Sadie rockin’ her new bow. Unfortunately Sadie is not in the mood to try on hair accessories.
Yesterday in my house we had another reason to party besides the Super Bowl. Yesterday marked the 2nd anniversary of my very first blog post! I can’t believe I’ve been sharing Sadie’s photos and adventures for two years now! Sadie and I have done a lot of learning and growing these past two years and this blog keeps getting bigger and better. During my first year of blogging I was totally focused on learning the mechanics behind having a blog, designing the look and feel of the blog, setting up social media accounts, and all the little details I didn’t know before becoming a blogger. By the time this second year of my blog began I was a lot more comfortable with the how to of blogging and got to focus more on content. I was able to partner with some great companies and review some awesome products. I got paid for a blog post for the first time. I went to my first blogging conference, BlogPaws, and was able to meet and learn from a lot of other amazing bloggers. And most importantly, this blog has given me a reason to seek out adventures for Sadie and I to have together. So on my second Blogiversary I want to say thank you to all of you readers out there who support and encourage all the good times and hard work that goes into every photo I take and blog post I write.
