Happy Bloggyversary

In celebration of my 1 year bloggyversary I decided to take you all back to where it all began.  Yep, my very first post.  Isn't it kind of funny to look back and see where you were a year ago.  That's part of the reason blogging is so fun for me!  No judgement please:)

This is what I wrote, one year ago today:

I caved to my own obsessions!

Ok ok, I finally caved.  I have been an avid (and by avid I mean obsessive) blog reader for about a year now.  I religiously follow about 15 blogs, which leads to minimal productivity on some of those slow days at work:)  My mind won't seem to turn off, so I figured this would be a great outlet for me to share with... whomever feels like reading... the life that now revolves around one little miss LuciRae.  For those of you that know me you can skip this next paragraph but here is just a little bit to get me started.

I am married to the most fantastic man in the world.
Cute right!

I am a new mommy (Luci is 7 months old now!!!)

Cute right :)!!

If you asked me my job title I would have to tell you that I am currently an insurance agent... but this job so does not seem to be the fit for me.  I am actually pretty good at it but my real passions revolve around my God, my family, and creating.  I LOVE garage sales, thrift shops, antiques stores... heck I have even been known to steal chairs from people's trash.  Basically if it looks like it needs some "love" I will probably take it home and try to give it the "love" it deserves.

In this blog I would love to share with you all the happenings in our lives (especially for those of you I don't get to see as often as I would like).  Keeping you posted on the awesomeness that is our lives.
I will also be keeping you posted on the latest and greatest "projects" that I am giving "love" to.  Here is just one example of this...

My mom found this beauty at an estate sale... I did not take a before picture but I absolutely LOVE the after.

Well, that's all for now... I will keep you posted:)

So there you have it... My life in retrospect.  For those of you who aren't caught up on my latest happenings let me fill you in:

I am no longer an insurance agent ( THANK GOD!)  I actually started my own furniture/home decor store called The Dented Lampshade.  I quit my job in insurance and started working part time with an estate sale company.  This little girl doesn't see the backside of a desk unless she's painting it!

As for little miss Luci Rae she is a walking, or should I say running, talking, pooping in the bathtub toddler now.  So needless to say my life is a little more active then it used to be, but that's the way I like it!

And that fantastic husband of mine... he is still cute as can be, and so supportive of my crazy lifestyle.  Gotta love that man of mine.  Oh, and did I mention he is handy too:)

Well, happy Friday everyone.  Thanks for taking this little trip down memory lane with me
