blog every day in may: five favorite posts

Like the rest of the country, I am thinking of the people in Oklahoma today. My cousin, her husband, and their three young children live in Moore. Luckily, they have a storm shelter and were safe during the storm and their home suffered minimal damage, comparatively (the chimney was on the ground beside the house and they lost part of their roof). Many parts of their neighborhood were devastated and they are out with their church helping in the community today. 

I wasn't going to blog today because I still don't have my post written and photos uploaded from DC (sometimes life has to come before documenting life, y'all) but then I remembered blogging every day in May and I looked at the prompt and knew I could do it!

I've only been blogging since February so I don't know that I have found my voice yet, but here are a few things I wrote that stick out to me...

putting good in to get good out - I tried to be a better person, and I was rewarded in return. A great reminder that I always need.

the top 100 restaurants in Houston -  I wanted to write this post before I ever started a blog.

a day in the life: event planning - I always wonder what other people's jobs are like and I get asked about mine quite often. I like that I documented a good day so I can always remember what this job was like.

Chicago: my kind of town - warning: food overload, but I loved visiting Chicago (even though it was -8*).

seven years ago today - one of my first posts. A quick history of how Andrew and I got together, if you're into that kind of thing.

Hmmmm, I find it interesting that none of my posts for this month made the cut. Perhaps I have been struggling with quantity over quality, or perhaps those all just feel too "new" to be a favorite? Anyone else notice this as you tried to recall your top posts? Granted, I'm sure nearly everyone else has a longer blogging history than I.

Send me a link to your favorite post! I would love to read it!


  1. Oooh, will have to check out these posts since I'm all new here and stuff. :)

  2. mmm I love your food posts! I've never even been to your favorite Houston restaurants. That needs to change asap!


I like comments and read them all but I'm not great about responding to them, so please don't be offended. I would much rather visit your blog instead!
