Celebrating One Year on JenyPenny

Hello friends! I noticed today that I've had this blog for exactly one year & three days.  It has been nice to go back through my earlier postings and see the things that I thought were important enough to write about and features I tried to do on a regular basis. Umm...somethings I really haven't kept up with!

I am still trying to find my voice and a balance between being authentic/entertaining.  Thank you for sticking with me on this journey.  I am excited for this upcoming year- I have big dreams (although the biggest dream will be coming true at the end of next month!) I thought it would be fun to update my first posting and see what has changed.

I hope to participate in:
Wordless Wednesday- still would like to and would be happy to have a reason to really improve my photography (read: not be afraid of my camera!)
What I wore Wednesday- not really feeling like my fashion is anything to photograph on a daily basis.  So RETIRING this idea.
Recipe sharing- Love too! I already have a couple of post schedule to run!
Esty promotions- My own and others.  I think I will start with just sharing the things I "heart" on Esty.
and slice of life entries- YEP! I see this being a regular feature when baby bean arrives!
