third blogiversary

Happy third birthday, blog! You are 52 posts bigger than last year!

I started this blog three years ago as a way for me to remember all our big family family events. I've also had fun documenting my latest crafty endeavors. For the first year, only my family and a few friends regularly read the posts. Now I have readers around the globe that have connected with me from Facebook, Google, and Ravelry! I'm thrilled that this little project I started for myself (and that I enjoy so much) also entertains my family, my friends, and even people I've never met!

So, I am dedicating this year to all my secret readers: the acquaintances I bump into who sheepishly ask about something from a blog post... or the ones who check in regularly but feel silly leaving a comment... or the ones who just enjoy having a window into a random stranger's life. I regularly read lots of blogs by people I've never met! I love to feel inspired by other people's crafting, and I enjoy seeing snippets of life from people around the world. I would write this blog even if no one read it, but you make it even more worth it. Here's to another good year!


  1. Dear Caitlin, happy blogiversary!!! (not sure I will teach that word to my students in English class...)
    Thank you for inspiring us with your craft, certainly, but mostly with your joy and energy (that you seem to have passed on to little Mae!)
    I wish you, your blog and your precious family, many blessings.

    1. Thank you for the nice note, Helene! Maybe you can teach the word portmanteau, of which "blogiversary" is a good example! :)

    2. Or rather... How a French word (porte = carry; manteau = coat. Portemanteau is a coat rack in French) can be reinvented in another language with a slightly different meaning... :D

    3. Yes! A perfect example of that! I find word origins fascinating!
