bumpy road to bubba turns one

Today is our first birthday, so happy birthday to us!

more cake for me mumma?


Valentine’s Day – one year on. Is it really one year since I started chronicling our journey? In some ways it doesn’t seem like it could possibly be that long. In others, it feels much longer. Maybe because I’ve told the story of my journey which started long before the story of our journey.

Whatever the reason, I am so thrilled to be sharing our story of hope, love and family – along with the bumps in the road – with you all. I’ve written around 50,000 words (Bella and Beary want you to know that is not counting their guest blogs!). That’s 179 blogs. We’ve had close to 23,000 visitors from all over the world in our first year together. All beyond my wildest dreams.

This is another of those moments where I stop to say thank you.

I realise every day how incredibly lucky I am to have been given the gift of being Bubba’s mumma. And Bella and Beary’s too. So thank you to my utterly adorable little family. For your unconditional love, kindness and the thousands of times each day you make my heart beat just that little faster. You three are truly scrumptious.

Thank you to my family and friends for supporting me in this journey. My journey as a mumma and my journey as a writer. I’m learning a lot about both as I go, and hope to ultimately be spectacularly successful at both!

Thank you to my blogging friends whose lives I’ve been privileged to share over the past year. You know who you are, but later this week I’ll post about you – to share with those who don’t (but should) know you.

If you’re new to our blog, here’s a link to my first post – and the start of our journey. https://bumpyroadtobubba.com/2011/02/14/valentinesday/

Enjoy your day. Enjoy each moment. Share some love. Be gracious. And be thankful.

I know I am.

ps – I am fairly certain having a blog birthday means mumma is allowed to lift her [self-imposed] eat only lettuce this week plan, eat some cake and pop open the bubbly?!
