Today marks six years of blogging! It's hard to believe the blog has been around so long, but also easy to believe when I read through all the old posts! This blog was around before Jay was! 

Here are six personal blog favourites:

My very first post, the day after I got fired from my dream job.

This Chicken Halloween Costume and also this Grandma one

I hate cheese sauce

This creepy Go Station experience

The first Molly post 

Sometimes people talk to me about the dangers of putting it all online. I do see their point but I feel like this blog has brought me so much. It has opened doors to job offers, is part of the reason Jay decided to meet me in person after reading the whole blog on a road trip, has lead to countless really valuable and special friendships, and has functioned as an (edited) journal of sorts. There are countless times where typing out a blog post has helped me to think through my problems and when that didn't work, the encouragement of all of you readers has often done the trick. 

You probably all have guessed that I don't really worry about consistency or having planned posts or holding back on uncomfortable topics, or about blog stats... but it seems to be working out okay anyways. Ha! 

So whether you are new here or have read every blog post since day one (hi, mom/Brenna/Allison/Kate!), I just wanted to say thanks for sticking around. YOU ARE ALL THE BEST THING EVER!
