Two Year Blogiversary

Today marks two years for Baseball-Diamonds & Hairspray and what a wonderful two years it has been! If you are new to following along, this little corner of the internet all got started from a little encouragement from my friend Danielle. If you have a few minutes you should definitely check out Butler, Party of 3. Jase is THE cutest baby ever!
I am so glad that Danielle and I reconnected via Facebook and so glad that she gave me the encouragement and help I needed to start this little blog. Thankful for her patience too in all my questions I had for her! Once I got started on Blogger tho, it got easier and easier. Thank you so much Danielle!

In the past, I have loved scrapbooking, but if any of you have done that before, you know just how time consuming it can be. While I have been able to somewhat quickly post and document milestones in my life, I must admit I have missed scrapbooking a tad bit. I actually just bought a couple of books and am working on getting mine and Coach's engagement/wedding items together to start working on one. It will make a nice living room piece for our family and friends to look at when they are visiting.
I started this blog shortly after Coach and I got engaged, and it was wonderful to post all about our engagement year, and our first year of being hitched, for our family and friends to stay updated. As I have been working on my blog lately, it has been awesome to look back on those sweet moments.. almost seems like I am reliving it and I love it.

I would like my little space to continue to grow and flourish. At times I have gotten a little bummed that it hasn't grown as much as others have in a two year period.. BUT, I have learned that for me blogging seems like it's a full time job! And I am still learning this blogging world too! Just ask MeganSometimes there are just not enough hours in the day for me to upload my pictures and type out my thoughts. Sometimes I even feel pressure like "I have to post! I haven't posted in a few days and I have to talk about something!" Well, some days there is nothing exciting going on in my life or I just have nothing to 'talk about' or 'say'! A few days ago, I was reading Lauren's post from Peach State of Mind.. what a great question to ask myself! I needed to be reminded that I am doing this for ME and I must add my family to that, too. They enjoy this little corner so much following mine and Coach's newlywed journey. I don't want to post just to be posting. There have also been times when I have gotten down on myself and my ability to write.. sometimes my words just don't flow as I would like them to and it's very frustrating for me. But then my sweet readers come along and y'all leave me sweet comments and I feel good all over again! 

I have to admit God has blessed me in the Arts and Crafts department. Not trying to toot my own horn or brag at all. I LOVE being able to paint on a canvas, first and foremost, and I am pretty good with DIY'ers, and it's so much more fun for me to make someone a gift rather than go buy them something. I was even able to make the flower girl baskets for our wedding from a little inspiration from googling. With all that being said, I also hope to document more of those types of things to inspire you like others have inspired me!

I never in a million years thought I would have a blog and connect with such sweet people! I am so FLATTERED that y'all come to visit me here, checking out what I have to say, seeing what the latest is in my life, for taking the time to say hello and leave me a comment letting me know you were here. Y'all make this girl feel good and I appreciate all of your kindness and love you show me!!

In celebration of this blogiversary, here are a few many of my favorite posts!

In random order:

I could keep going and going! 
Of course I love everything of our wedding, honeymoon, and one year anniversary trip. You can see all of those posts under Our Love Story.

Thank you again to all of my sweet followers for all of your love, support, kindness, and sweet comments. I hope this blog continues to uplift and inspire you!
