We just turned 3 last week. It’s a blogiversary celebration! This is the third blog post I have done in three years to recognize our growth as a family, DIY home projects and a slew of blessings, achievements and press features that have come our way since we started the blog 3 years ago. I say the same thing each year, “what the heck happened and how did we get here?” I also say, “never in a million years would I have thought I would be the ring leader of a blog. Never mind a blog about my family!” I can honestly say that now, our blog has turned into my full time job. I mean, I make a penny and hour but who cares, I am having a blast doing it!

The picture above is from our feature in the Boston Globe a few weeks ago. Over the past 12 months, we have had a couple minor trips to the hospital due to my grandparents age and deteriorating health but all in all as a family, we are fortunate.
The blog has grown substantially over the last year tripling in page views and daily visitors and we have been fortunate to have hooked up with some awesome sponsors who are rockstars to work with. Our DIY home projects and renovations are going strong and we have big plans for 2015. Our multigenerational family caught the attention of not only the Boston Globe but the Huffington Post as well where I conducted two live interviews on their main streaming network. That was kinda fun ;). We had a bunch of features over the last year which still continues to blow my mind. I mean, I work from my kitchen island in my pajama’s many days and the blog continues to thrive. It’s a crazy thing!
We shared many home makeovers, outdoor curb appeal and DIY projects as well as a new addition to the blog, our kitchen and our RV + Camping adventures. This blog is a funny thing, it not only lends to building relationships with major brands and local and national publications, it has given me the opportunity to make new friends in the blogosphere, connect with readers who are completely intrigued by our living arrangement and create a new adventure not only for myself but my family as well. My mom is thrilled with the addition of our kitchen section and my grandfather continues to be baffled by the brands we work with to complete DIY home projects and renovations. Our son even got his own blogging gig for the first time a couple weeks ago where he modeled some clothing for a company we were working for.
On to the next year and excited to see what the next 12 months bring! As a thank you to all of you who follow our blog and leave the best comments, we are giving away a $100 Home Goods gift card. The giveaway will end at midnight on September 7th, 2014. The winner will be chosen at random and will have 48 hours to respond to the email or another winner will be drawn.
