Five Years Old

{ lovely image via }

My little blog is five years old today, you guys.

It's totally not a big deal. I didn't even realize that it was coming until yesterday. Last year, on my blog's fourth birthday, I was similarly oblivious and just posted this cookie recipe.

I'm not going to recite any stats for you {mine are kind of pathetic anyway}, or ask you to fill out a survey {I tried to make one, but I didn't know what to ask and I kept tying "survery" for some reason}, or do an awesome giveaway {although I've got one in the works for later this month - stay tuned}.

I will say that I'm grateful to have this place to write and work my thoughts out and record some of the things that happen in my life. It might seem silly, but this blog is important to me. Thank you, my sweet readers, for being a part of it. I'm grateful for you, too.

P.S. My blog has its own Facebook page now, if you'd like to like it. No pressure or anything. ;)


  1. Happy 5th birthday, Mare! You know I love this blog if nothing else to get more glimpses of the three cutest Plautz littles (no pressure to our other married brothers). I'm so glad that your last chance at blogging as been such a success!

  2. Woohoo!! Happy 5 years!! Have I ever told you that I specifically remember reading a blog post of yours while I was in labor with Charlie? At like 4 oclock in the morning?!

  3. Happy Birthday, MLC! Still my favorite blog.

  4. Stopping by from Dancing with Ashley's blog! I'm one of her younger sisters! I think it's awesome that you take time to write about what's important in your life. With college, I don't feel I could handle a blog, but I do need to start writing in a journal! Congrats on making it 5 years!

  5. I love reading your blog. Your family is adorable! I entered your awesome giveaway at Dancing with Ashley, too!

  6. Coming over from Dancing with Ashley. Happy five year blogiversary! It's quite an accomplishment!

    The Tiny Heart
    Target Giveaway!

  7. Happy 5 years! I've been blogging for 4 years and I won't recap my somewhat pathetic stats either :o) I just do it because it's fun! I found you through Dancing with Ashley (who is just the sweetest blogger in blogland)!

  8. Congratulations on your five-year blogoversary! Mine one-year is coming soon. Visiting from the Dancing with Ashley giveaway.

  9. That's great! You have such a positive and uplifting blog! Five years is an awaome accomplishment. Congragulations!!!
