I’m reflecting this morning from the same big, comfy chair I sat in four years ago. On that July morning, I was up early putting the finishing touches on our website before we officially launched to our beautiful followers, not knowing how this project would change us; how it would stretch us.
This journey of growing Colorado Springs Moms Blog and our community has been so similar to motherhood.
It is amazing and exhilarating.
It is joyful.
It feels daunting and exhausting some days.
It is harder than we expected.
It takes a lot of energy… and the little things (encouragement, reassurance and a smile) give us the strength when we are running low.
It feels like we are not qualified.
It takes a village… (and we have an incredible village of moms on our team and as our readers!).
It is better than we expected.
We can’t believe it is our 4th birthday. What a ride so far, and we are just getting started! Our hope for COSMB is to foster motherhood connections, create space for family memories to be formed, and help our community love the great city we live in.
Below we’ve gathered the top 10 posts from our 4th year – take a walk down memory lane with us, and strap in for the journey through our next year. We believe that you will find bits and pieces of yourself in our diverse team of moms who have walked through so many different seasons. You belong here, in community with us.
