Belated Blogiversary

My recent writer’s block and Jacob’s new sleep schedule (up at five or six, plus a shorter midday nap) meant that I missed celebrating a fun semi-holiday: YMM’s Blogiversary!


Below are the top ten blog posts of the last year.

  1. Miscarriage Resources
  2. Watch It: Fireproof
  3. Dear No. 2 II (Dear Ethan)
  4. This Is How I Grieve
  5. To Be a Princess
  6. We May Not Like His Plans, But He Sure Has Good Timing
  7. Words to Care for a Mama’s Soul
  8. Housewarming
  9. Gratitude
  10. Guest Post: Remixed


I am delighted by how many of these posts involve Ethan: six of the ten! It is a comfort to see how many people have experienced him in this way. To me, his life is a testament to the power of love–in a not-corny way–and I am grateful to have been able to share that here.


This year has seen some big changes–a new URL, a new baby, a new loss, and a new way to grow closer to God, family, and friends.

I’m celebrating two years, and more importantly, I’m celebrating lots of great readers. Thank you for sharing this journey with me, and here’s to more adventures ahead!
