With everything going on and being in and out of the hospital last week, I missed this little blog's birthday! I started Anchors Aweigh 2 years ago on December 1st, 2012, and I never could have imagined how much I would love it or how much of a role it would play in both mine and Parker's lives. We just wanted a place to document our adventures and keep our families updated, but it's turned into so much more than that. It's a place where I have connected with so many amazing women. It's a place where I have drawn inspiration from others and hopefully inspired others as well. It's a place where I have shared our greatest joys and our greatest pains.
I like to look back and pick out my favorite posts from the past year, and this year, it's pretty darn easy! I loved getting to write about our sweet Taylor Grace. From our announcement to each bumpdate to sharing the news of her chromosomal abnormality and her homecoming into Heaven, I am so glad I documented it all. She's my favorite conversation topic. Even though she isn't with me anymore, she will always be such a huge part of who I am and the greatest blessing.
Other than that, I was very humbled to get to share my little sister's story. I still go back and read that post from time to time because I am in awe of how faithful God is and how He uses His children for His good.
Parker's Winging- I still get chills when I think about that day! So darn special!
Wanting to Freeze Time- This is sort of a random one, but this post just reminds me how much Parker and I loved living in Corpus Christi. Dinners overlooking the water are so missed! So is warm weather.
Real Life- I like this one because it showcases the not so glamorous but all too present aspects of daily life. So often we share the pretty stuff, but real life happens to all of us!
It's been a fun 2 years. I look forward to hopefully many more! Thanks to everyone who has been encouraging and read this little blog of mine. I am thankful for you! I'm going to attach a screenshot of what my blog template looks like after 2 years because more than likely, I will get bored and change it before too long.
So here's a question: for those who have been reading this blog, what have been your favorite posts or post topics?
