two years and counting

today marks two years i have been blogging here at huffmania. thinking about it this morning, i have decided that i just plain like it. there are so many reasons, the community is amazing, it makes me think in ways i might not have, i love taking pictures, i like to talk, and if you havent noticed, my posts are mostly me blabbing about whatever. so i think i will keep on keeping on. huffmania, a day in the life. thank you for stopping by. say hello today, i would love to hear from you. today i am vowing to write everyone back that comments, because really without you its just me talking in empty space, which believe me i could do, but you have made it a conversation. and that makes it just that much better.

this is my first time commenting at huffmania. i check in almost daily but i am not much of a commenter. blogs like yours are my favorite ("blabbing about whatever") and i am so glad to read that you are planning to keep it up.

Your blog is awesome! I could go out for lunch, but I'd rather sit at my desk and read about other people's lives. Yours is the only one I comment on but that's because I know "of" you! :) I tried to start my own, but I spend too much time reading to also do the writing!

i, for one, would like to see more basement projects. and maybe some more pictures of arlos chub. and david pictures. particularly the sort where he's looking kind of angsty.

what? you weren't asking for suggestions? okay. i'm okay with the babbling too... (you're one of my favourite conversations.)

I was going to write pretty much the same as Jess. I check in daily but I never comment (mainly because my native language isn't English aaaand because for most of the time I'm at loss for words).

I guess it's time to tell you how much I appreciate your blog and that it often fills me with joy. The way you write about your family and everyday life is so lovely that I sometimes can't wait to start my own family. ;)

Happy Birthday!

wow two years! no wonder i'm not as good at blabbing about whatever. i love reading your blog everyday. i live in st. louis so i feel like we have something in common, living in the midwest and the weather mostly. thank you for your inspiration. it's helped me to start my own blog and helped me to look at things in the everyday a different way.

Hi Hannah, Happy 2 year anniversary. I have been following your blog over the last 6 months, and I enjoy it very much. I look forward to updates on your kids, crafts and recipes. I don't know how you find time to do all that you do. Maybe one of these days instead of reading blogs I will have the courage to start my own. Cheers from Canada!

Hannah, I, too, must confess that I read your blog regularly, but never comment.
I love reading about how you think about your life--your crafts, your family, your friends.
Your enjoyment of your life encourages me to enjoy mine more, too.
Glad your plan is to keep blogging!

of course we love reading your blog every day.... to be jealous of your craftiness and see your beautiful children... blogs like this are what make me forget that my 21 minute lunch is only 21 minutes.

Congrats on two years! Time sure does fly when you're busy blogging. Sometimes it flies so fast that I read without commenting, but I do always read. Thank you, and thank goodness for bloglines.

I'm not sure what it is that I like so much about your blog, but I do. Maybe it's because we are from similar parts of the universe. Maybe it's because you are so crafty. Maybe it's the pictures. I think mostly it's the writing. It's genuine, and interesting and insightful. Whatever it is, keep it up.

Reading your blog is one of my favorite daily pleasures. The way that you are able to raise a loving family with grace, creativity, and humor is really inspiring to me. I think that when we write about our experiences it helps us to reflect on them, enjoy them even more, and maybe learn something to share with others. I appreciate your blog because it gives me ideas and eggs me on to be more productive and creative. Not to mention, it helps me focus on what's important in life. So thanks, and keep it up! :)

I've been reading for a while as well but I never comment... I love your blog, your pictures and projects and stories. I'm pregnant now for the first time and I love reading about your kids and dreaming of what the coming months will bring.

love your blog and check in often...you have a beautiful family! when I was young, (like 8) my dream job was to be an archaeologist/historian- I am a mother of 3 and a part-time baker, not close- so I love to at least read someone who is my childhood dream! :)

I'm going to round up your responses to the grand number of 50! Congratulations on the big 2!I love reading your blog and wish I lived closer, like at least in the same hemisphere! I would also like to say thank heavens for the internet and blogs which are keeping our adult minds forever childlike with the imagining that we do when we read about one anothers lives. Questions like "What do they look like? what is their house like?" etc. I can conjure up all sorts of possibilities and when photos reveal glimpses it just makes it all so more intriguing.

Hannah, I am so glad you're here. I just love the way you put thoughts into words. I have a feeling when we finally do meet (one day, I feel sure) we will have lots of rambling to do. Happy two years, and happier many years to come xo

Hi Hannah, just like many have said before, I am also a frequent reader of your blog for a few months, but I really don't know what to comment most of the times. I really like that you talk about almost anything and hope to read more of your stories for a long time! Happy blog-o-versary, xoxoxo Nynke (the Netherlands)
