Happy Blogiversary MOB!

Hello friends!  Guess what!?  Today My Own Balance turns two!  I can’t believe I have a toddler on my hands. πŸ™‚

Happy Blogiversary 2

Seriously though, when I started blogging in 2012  I had no idea what it really meant to have a blog.  I just kind of saw a few other blogs and thought, “I can do that.”  I had no idea the people I’d meet and how my content would evolve and grow.  I had no clue the opportunities that this little space on the internet would open up for me.  I started My Own Balance as a way to try to find more balance in my life, which I didn’t feel like I had a lot of working in a law firm.  It was a way for me to focus on two things that I find really important: healthy living and enjoying life.  Neither of which were supposed to be a priority to me at the time.  Things have changed so much since when this blog started but one thing has stayed the same and that is my eternal gratefulness to you all for stopping by here to check out what’s going on!  

For more on my blogging story and career change, read here and here.

  1. Happy birthday Brittany!!
    I love that you put up your top pins, great idea! Those will be fun to look through!

    What makes me happy?? Being outside in the morning sunrise!!! I’m about to go running at Bear Lake and while typing can see the sun highlighting the grass fields. Wow.

  2. Happy Blog Birthday!!!! Since starting my own, I’m always intrigued to read about the paths of more-seasoned bloggers. I’d say what makes me happy today is that our nursery-painting and crafting party was a hit last night; we got lots done, which makes life a little less-stressful for this mama πŸ™‚ Enjoy celebrating!

  15. Happy blogiversary, Britt!! I didn’t know about your career background but I think it’s awesome that you’re doing something that you enjoy!

    What makes me happy today? Well, I enjoyed walking outside in the rain this morning. We’ve been dealing with a lot of heat in Seattle lately and today is the first time it rained in a while. It was nice to enjoy some fresh air instead of muggy air for once!

    This is going to sound a bit nutty, but we’ve had an ant problem in our new home, and a pest guy just came and sprayed all around, so the thought of no more ants is making me happy today! Haha.
