322 Posts

One year and 322 posts.  I can't believe it.  When I wrote my first post (click here to read it! ), I had NO IDEA what I was doing when it came to blogging.  I really did not expect anyone to read it and thought it would just be a great creative outlet.  I was nervous about exposing myself (I actually thought I would keep this anonymous....silly me) and did not know my writing style yet.  I laugh at some of my first few months of blogging.  It does not even sound like the same person.  It has been fun to see myself "grow up" as a blogger and to share it with the world.

One thing  I did not expect out of blogging are the amazing relationships that I have developed.  Whether it is other bloggers, PR professionals, mommy entrepreneurs, magazines, retailers, or all the women (and perhaps men) that read my blog, leave comments and tweet me, I never considered the impact a blog could have in my life.  It has been a pleasure "getting to know" all of you and I look forward to continuing these relationships while building more.

I want to thank each one of you for all the support you have given Juggling in Heels over the past year.  It means more to me than you know and I am looking forward to seeing what can happen with the blog over the next year.  If it is half as fun as this first year has been, sorry, but I am in this for the long haul and you are going to keep hearing from me (well, unless you stop following but I hope that is not the case!).

To wrap up my day of celebration, I am not only going to eat the above cupcake but am also going to share 10 items with you that you may not know about me.  Weird that I have not shared any of this before but better late than never right?

1. I am the oldest of 6 kids and my youngest sister is only 4 years older than my Oldest.  They go to the same school, which is somewhat strange.

2. I have a major fear of drowning even though swimming was my sport and I was a lifeguard for years.

3. Yes I am 6ft tall but I have never played volleyball (probably the number one question I am asked).

4. My favorite book of all time is Gone with the Wind and Scarlett O'Hara is my favorite literary character.

5. Even though I live a corporate life two days a week, I still get jealous sometimes of women who have a full time job and are still climbing the corporate ladder.  I love being home a lot with my kids but I miss the corporate life sometimes.

6. I have an issue with claustrophobia and freaked out during an MRI (I am hoping I NEVER need one EVER again.)

7. I love to dance.  LOVE IT.  LOVE IT.  LOVE IT.

8. I know (almost) every word to every 80's song.  My hubby says I would be a genius if I empty all that information from my head and put something useful in there. I find it useful.  You never know when you are going to be asked to karaoke.

9. I adore coffee and wine but cannot stand soda of any kind....except for when it is in a Vodka Press.

10.  I talk A LOT (all my friends and family can attest to this).




  1. Yay! Happy Birthday! ;) I was so excited for find your blog just 5 short months ago and I read it everyday! I love the variety of posts and all the wonderful pictures from your wardrobe to your wish list and your kids. Can't wait to read more!

  2. Happy Birthday JIH! Didn't know some of the list. One night, if enough wine is had, we will have to break out the 80's music & DANCE. I'm probably a little better at the moves that accompany that genre due to my age, but I'll pass along some of my moves.

  3. Happy birthday! One year flies by - and it is fun to look back at the evolution. So fun to see where you will take it next year! Hugs, fellow blogger. :)

  4. Happy blogging birthday! Love the fun facts about you -- that's crazy about #1.

  5. Congrats Sarah!! Love the top 10...I think I only knew a couple of those things about you! Hope you get to gobble up that cupcake. :)

  6. Happy Blogoversary!! And I love the personal notes... I too am the oldest of 6 kids, my youngest sister is 13! And no soda for me either. Iced tea, coffee, and wine fill my system. Who knew we had best friend potential? :) xo!

  7. Thank you for all the amazing comments! You guys are the best!

  8. Happy bday JiH!! I don't get to read as often as I like, but always find a smile on my face when I do. :)

    Love these little facts, esp about 80's music. I'm the same way! It's embarrassing almost, when I can sing along to the music playing at the grocery store.
