Last week when Lindsay invited me to join the Pin It Party, I took an opportunity to look back over some of my old posts. I chose a few recipes and workout posts for the party, because the pictures were very pinable. But I also dug up a few posts that really meant something to me.
I have been blogging for over four years! Over that time, I have written hundreds of posts, including some that I am really proud of. In some ways, writing is like giving birth. As you compose your work, a seed of an idea formulates into a full-fledged post, sometimes painful as you open up your heart to your readers. The end result, after all the hard work, feels like a living being, with a beating heart, that you can actually love.
Okay, I’m being a little dramatic. But writing a post that you are proud of is an accomplishment. And it is one that is quickly swept up under a layer of new posts, new readers, and new page views. As I was digging through my archives, I found a few posts that I really want you to read. Articles that I’m proud of, or that reveal a part of my life. Here they are, in no particular order.

Imagine that you are sitting home one evening, when out of the blue you get a phone call from someone who says, “I think you might be my dad.” It happened to my husband.
I have run 35 marathons, but I will always remember my first, Honolulu 1996.
I hope that you have enjoyed looking back as much as I have! Bloggers, do you have a favorite post, no matter how old, that you’d like to share. Readers, do you ever look back at your favorite bloggers’ archives?
