Happy Anniversary Blog!

It's been a big year! A lot has happened and a lot has changed. For starters, you were initially called "W Family Blog". Yawn. Yawn. Boring. Obviously, my "pregnant" brain was preoccupied with morning sickness to come up with something more clever.

Then, as the morning sickness wore off, you became "Home Place" - named after the farm on which we live. Still not extremely creative but at least we are getting somewhere.

Recently, you made the transition to "Home Sweet Home Place." Still not the most original, but it accurately sums up our life on the farm. Life is truly sweet and home is...well, on Home Place. So there you go!

Besides a year of blogging...and renaming the blog, there has also been a lot of happenings that spurred a laugh or triggered a tear or two. Obviously the big ones like having a baby and turning 20...I mean 30...rank high on the list. But there were other moments that are worth taking a second look at. If you will, I'd like to take a minute to take a look at the past year. A montage if you will. Who could forget?...
