One year ago, I decided that I better either do something to resuscitate my dying blog, or let it die. I decided to commit to the Sunday photo, and I'm so glad I did. Just blogging once a week reminded me how much I love to blog. It reminded me that it's something that I do for myself that truly feeds me. So I started doing it a little more. Then I started to realize that perhaps I could also make enough money blogging to allow me to quit the little part time job I had that I really didn't like.
And, guess what? I quit that job in April and it feels SO good. I will still be teaching a ton of voice lessons come fall, but I have more time to do the things that fill me up (and the things that never got done, like the dishes) because of my little blog. I'm really happy that I listened to the little voice pestering me to do more with it again. It's been a great year.
And I thought it would be fun to compare the photo from one year ago with the photo today. I took it in the same place, though the girls aren't sitting in the right order. Also, I've been really terrible about keeping them in their Sunday Best for these photos the last little while. But the point is that they've all grown and changed quite a bit this year. It's strange to see the photos together, because seeing a photo each week doesn't allow you to really notice some big changes.
