Happy Birthday My Closet and Hers!
Yesterday, April 10th, marked the one year anniversary of my sister and me launching this blog. We cannot believe it has been a whole year! When we first decided to do this, we were just looking for something fun to do together and for a creative outlet since we were both stay-at-home moms…we had no idea we were going to stick with it for this long! When I look back over the last year of blogging, I really notice how much has changed about the way I regard it. The first several months we really didn’t know what we were doing and it was a lot of trial and error, but I still thought of it as a fun little hobby that I didn’t take too seriously. Over time though, My Closet and Hers became my blog baby and I knew I had to devote time to nourishing it so it could grow. There is still a lot of trial and error and still so much to learn, but we’re getting there, slowly but surely. One thing I have learned personally, is that this blogging lifestyle is something I love…the blog community has been so inspiring to me and it is wonderful to be a small part of it. We are so grateful to all of our incredible and encouraging readers – without you, we wouldn’t have made it through this first year. So thank you so much for reading and we hope you stick with us throughout the next year!
Also…a lot of you have asked about my sister (Brittany) and why she isn’t on the blog as much anymore. This is something else that has changed since we first created My Closet and Hers. In the beginning, we were doing it all together and we were posting equally; however, we didn’t really realize how much management went into running a blog. Brittany has twins who, when we first launched the blog last April, were only 6 months old. A few months into it she found out that (surprise!) she was pregnant! So, with taking care of infant twins on top of being pregnant, the time she had to devote to the blog was limited, so I decided to take over and Brittany would do posts when she was able to. When things have calmed down a bit and she has a little more “free” time, she will begin to post more regularly again…it is My Closet and Hers after all! Which brings me to the next part of this post…….
Brittany had her baby!!! Markham Pace Tuten was born Thursday, March 31st…he is now a week and a half and is doing great! Sadly, I have not been able to make the trip to Tennessee to meet him yet, but I cannot wait to get my hands on him! Brittany, of course, is a rock star and is handling being a mom of three children under 2 years old like a boss. This sweet sister/best friend of mine has always been an inspiration to me and I couldn’t be more happy for her!
So, Happy Birthday Markham…welcome to the world! And Happy Birthday My Closet and Hers…I can’t wait to see what the next year has in store for us! Now, let’s all go have cupcakes….
