HWH's 1st Birthday!



When I published my first post (a test post of sorts), I had no idea how much I would fall in love with blogging and my on-line friends.  Thankfully, I've gotten to actually meet some of them, making this whole blogging thing that much more sweet.  

My plan for my blog initially was to chronicle our house building process, but it's turned into so much more.  Becoming a mom led to me posting more about motherhood and my son, and instead of just sharing pretty inspirational decor images, I found myself sharing OUR home.  Thus, a "home blogger" was born.  After a few months, the writing process naturally started to become more intimate as I received comments and began to have conversations with readers.  

A new blogger never forgets her first comment and follower! 


And the longer you're at it, the more you appreciate that people continue to comment and follow! It's especially fun to hear from a reader who recently found your blog and writes to tell you how much they like it.  

for reading along, sharing your lives through your comments and emails, and for your advice, encouragement and love.

Many thanks to my blog designer Jenna of QA Design.  She is so wonderful to work with, if you ever need help with your blog, I highly recommend her.  She helped me clean things up a little this week and I hope you like it!  p.s. You can follow Jenna on Twitter @jennarammell

  4. You should know that since a few days ago, you even have followers in Belgium! I found your blog while looking for inspiration to decorate my first appartment, and I told some friends about it. We all LOVE it!! Greetings from Europe

  5. Happy Birthday!! I so enjoy your blog, everything from the organizational tips and decor to your posts about being a mommy...things I can relate to! I started my blog with the same intent you had with yours, to chronicle my own home, but it is taking on another life. It is addictive and fun at the same time. :)

    And thank you, BTW, for being MY first follower! (other than a good friend and my family, that is!)

  6. Happy 1st birthday HWH! I randomly found your blog while looking for Xmas inspiration in December and fell in love with it. I was new to the world of blogging, but read almost every page of yours. HWH eventually inspired me to start my own blog - so thank you! Looking forward to many more inspiring posts! xo

  9. Yay, HBD HWH!!

    And lol at my comment...I'm sure there are MANY! I remember the day I checked my email and had tons of comments (on posts going waaaay back) from the sweetest, most bubbly stalker-girl named Megan. I decided to check out who she was and discovered we were twinsies in so many ways, and now she's my BBFF! I'm so glad you started your blog so we could meet!!!

  50. I'm still reading backwards... a few pages worth each day (at work! eeks!). LOVE your blog.

    Oh and I saw a few posts back that you loved the bedroom from Love This Life. Mandy (the author of that blog) is a hometown friend of mine. Did you know her when she lived in Houston?
