2 year blogiversary!!!



On May 8, 2012 at 4:03 pm I pushed publish and my first blog entry on My So-Called Mommy Life went live!

I really wasn’t sure who was going to read my post or any subsequent posts that I wrote. I wanted to document my life with Princess Peach and share wonderful things with the world. The sharing part meant that people would have to read it. But I felt like the movie Field of Dreams “if you build it, they will come”. And that they did.

I’m often overwhelmed when people tell me they know about my blog. I’m so thankful that they chose to take their free time and read what I have to say. In OAC English (I just dated myself here) my teacher Ms. Chou kept telling our class that the way we wrote our essays is how they write in Universities and the way we needed to write. A very prescribed way. No matter how hard I worked on my essay, my writing just wasn’t good enough. I always thought I was a bad writer, so when I started to write my blog and I started getting compliments and amazing feedback I was and am still stunned. What I’ve learned is that I’m NOT a good essay writer but in fact a great storyteller. So Ms. Chou, if you are out there reading this, I can write just not the way you wanted me to!

I have to thank all the brands, PR companies, owners of stores and companies for believing in me and my opinion. I always write from my heart and I so appreciate you giving me the chance to share a little bit of me with your product to everyone!

Two years ago, I didn’t know many or any of my “blogging friends”. Even thought I use the umbrella term “blogging friends” many of you have become dear friends. I’ve learned, grown and been supported by so many of you and I thank you!

Thank you to my family and friends who have supported my blog, read my posts, and shared them. I’m so happy when I write a post that connects with you and you let me know 🙂

To The Hubster who has agreed that our lives can be documented with the world to read, thanks. I appreciate all the times that I run out to an event or you are cuddling a baby so I can blog the night away.

Lastly, to my kids. They are my inspiration and my greatest accomplishment. Without them, there would not be this! I hope that when they are old enough to read this blog that they are as proud of me as I am of them.

I can’t wait to see where the next year takes me! I hope you continue to join in along with me!

If you aren’t following me already on these social media channels, I would love to connect! Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.

In typical Renee fashion I celebrated today with a cake! Because every event no matter how small, needs cake 🙂
