Happy Bloggiversary!

A glimpse of the past year at Maple Grove



You know what I just realized?  It has been over a year since I started the Maple Grove blog. I really haven't paid much attention to time or numbers. I'm not a contender blogger.  I just blog for the sheer joy of taking pictures and telling stories about living simply at Maple Grove. I have been inspired by the ideas of so many people over the years, and I just want to give a witness to the blessings God has given me and hopefully inspire some others along the way.


It just sort of occurred to me that it has probably been over a year since I began, and so I went back and looked up the first blog post.  While I missed it by a month, I got the date of the month in the nick of time. My first blog post was on July 27, 2012 when I shared my Vintage Hen House Design.  Three months earlier (coincidentally, on the same date in the month) I began the Maple Grove Facebook page on April 27, 2012.  I'm glad I happened to think about how long it's been today on the 27th of August.

It means so much to me that so many people follow Maple Grove's Facebook page and blog.  I have met such wonderful people and made friends in this forum.  Without you, my picture-taking and story-telling would not have such joy and purpose in my life. Thanks for being here as a blessing in my life.  May God bless you richly! ~ Katie
