Two Years Blogging ๐ŸŽ‰ Q&A

Aww TWO whole years of The Riddick Family Blog!! 


I remember clicking publish on my first post on February 28th, 2021 and sending the link to my mom and sister, thinking they would probably be the only two to ever read it. I started out just posting once a week, challenged myself to blog every day one month in the summer, and then posted here and there throughout my last year of teaching. Then my challenge to blog every day again in the month of July turned into many months of being here every morning, and I love it so much! Thank you for following along and for all of your encouragement, comments, emails, tips, advice and insight! This is such a fun little place for me, and I can't thank you enough for reading along!!

Life Lately (And Any Q&A Questions?!)

Hey there!!! HAPPY MONDAY!!! We are headed in to what feel like really full weeks coming up...is it just me or does it feel like spring just totally snuck up on us all?! Hahaha but we had the best weekend, and are ready for this Monday!! 

Today I just have a little life lately for you...a little random assortment of a few things we've been up to recently. AND tomorrow will make TWO YEARS of this little Riddick Family Blog, and I thought it would be fun to do a little Q&A, so I left a little box at the bottom if you have any questions! I'll try to get to those and a few that I've gotten recently too!! So fun! 

But here's a little peek at the Riddick's Life Lately for your Monday!!

Let's Look - Medicine Cabinets

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you all are having such a great week!! Today I'd thought I'd jump into the Let's Look blog link-up...


If you've been around here for a little while, you know I'm trying to tackle areas of our house that have been collecting "things" for a while... And when I saw "Medicine Cabinet," there is a little area of our kitchen that usually houses all things bandaids/vitamins/etc and it just recently got a little overhaul too with my starting small method...

Frame This Moment.

Happy Thursday!! We are waking up in Louisville this morning because we decided to surprise Audrey last night and join her birthday dinner celebration!! What a fun start to the sweetest month!! Today I have my frame this moment for the week, and it really was a moment worth framing. 

We've been taking Jane to the nursery at church, and this week we had the sweetest teacher in the world and only a few babies in her class... And when I went to pick her up, she handed me this along with Jane...

Happy February 1st!!!

Oh February...I love this month SO very much. To me, this month represents so many fun things...it feels like the sweetest intro from a dark gray January to a happy bright March, and I'm all about the in-between over here...maybe that's the middle child in me hahaha I love the pink, the red, the kindness, the traditions, the hearts, the fun...I love that sometimes it snows and sometimes it feels like spring, I love seeing the sweetness through the eyes of little ones...I just love it all. 

But we also all love February 1st especially because we get to celebrate my sweet sister!! The perfect start to such a sweet month!!
