One Year Blog Anniversary!

I'm usually the type of person who likes to think things through before committing to something. Even now, when I go to watch a movie, I usually look the movie up, read reviews and make sure it's really something worth watching.

One night, on June 23, 2014, I thought it would be fun to have a blog. In my journal, I wrote, "I decided today that I would like to have a blog. I think I would be so happy if I eventually started one!" I don't remember ever dreaming of running a blog before; it was a sudden and random thought, as I recall.

Two days later, on June 25, I set up an email and Pinterest page for my new blog. Instead of my usual way of doing things (ya' know, thinking things through) I decided to go for it. A blog seemed like such a good idea. It was a way for me to take photos (which I like), write (which I love) and share my thoughts with my family and friends (which is wonderful)!

On June 26, 2014, Cast Iron Stew became an official blog!

The next day, on June 27, I wrote my first post. Now, 83 posts later, I still love sharing my posts with you and reading all of your wonderful comments!
