1st Blog Anniversary - How time flies?

I don't know about you, but life seems to be hurtling by so quickly that if I blink, I miss something; this was one of the reasons that I started the blog. I wanted to create a place where I could record memories for my girls and also for family and friends to be kept up to date with what we are up to.

Today marks one year of Ruby + Lottie! When I reflect back on the last year, there have been so many highlights and blessings that I'd have forgotten if they had not have been recorded on my blog. 

There are many posts that I look back on and feel incredibly proud that they have made a difference to other people lives, especially the posts that I've written have helped to raise awareness of charities and conditions that are on my heart; in particular Hyperemesis, Breastfeeding and PVNS. My personal favourite posts were the ones where I wrote down my thoughts and feelings for my girls in the letters that I published on their birthdays. 

I've been incredibly blessed over the last year to have had articles published by parenting websites and even in traditional print media, when my story of hyperemesis was featured in last months Prima Baby Magazine.

I have even been fortunate to take part in many radio interviews raising awareness of issues close to my heart.

However there is one things that I didn't anticipate when I first started the blog...... that I would make so many fantastic new on-line friends who have been so encouraging and supporting of both me and the blog. I would also like to thank You, the people who read this blog, you are all amazing, and without you, this blog would not happen. 

Finally, to mark one year of Ruby + Lottie I will be offering everyone a chance to have a free gift! So stay tuned for details later in the week.

Once again thank you all so very much for your ongoing love and support.
