Two years ago yesterday, I wrote my very first blog post for Rainstorms and Love Notes! I honestly can’t believe how fast these last two years have gone by. It’s crazy to think that when I sat down to write that first post, I had been married less than 4 months, I had a completely different job, and there was one less cat in our household.
I’ve had a lot of fun writing here over the past two years, and it’s been an amazing way to meet new friends, develop better food photography skills, and have a place to document life. It sounds cheesy, but starting this blog is one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself.
Lately, I’ve been feeling a little disconnected from all things blogging, and to be perfectly honest, it’s had me feeling a little down about it. But I’ve started to realize that life sometimes gets in the way of blogging, and that’s ok. It’s just where I’m at right now, and I know it won’t be like this forever. I expect that in a few more weeks, things will calm down a bit, the excitement will return, and I’ll feel more like my blogging self.
As I sat down to write this post, I took a look back over some of my favorite posts of the past two years, and I thought it’d be fun to share them. Maybe there will be a few that you missed originally!
