One Year Ago

via

A year ago I threw caution to the wind and started this little blog with no clue what I was doing.  I didn't follow any blogs, I didn't read any blogs and I certainly had no idea what to do with Twitter.  I recall stumbling upon a few blogs while searching for inspiration for our kitchen renovation and thought, "Hey I'll start my own blog where I can write about all my favorite things and share some of my amateur photography!"  I also loved the idea of a space in my life that would always be neat and tidy and where I made all the decisions.  (Control issues, I know.) 

Truth be told, it had only been two months since the birth of my second son and I think I was afraid of losing myself.  I was fearful of becoming a glazed over mom who didn't know how to talk about anything other than potty training and night time feedings.  Please understand.  I absolutely adore being a mother but there are still things outside of motherhood that I enjoy on a daily basis like cooking, gardening, photography, fashion, yoga and writing.  I knew I wanted this space to reflect who I was collectively as a person.  I also knew I wanted to write for other people which is why I named the blog, "Your Southern Peach."  

And so, as I reflect on the past year, I want to thank you friends, old and new.  Thank you for your encouragement, your sweet comments, your praise, your virtual smiles and for allowing me to be yours.  I never tire of writing this sweet, stylish, southern blog and I'm so very, very happy you choose to read. 

Yours,

Amy
