Two Years…

Sorry I’ve been MIA this week. I’ve had a nasty stomach flu since last weekend so I’ve been doing a lot of sleeping and movie watching. I had to pop in though, and share CC’s second anniversary with you all.

After all, you are the reason I’m still here, the reason I come back every week to share our house full of never-ending DIY’s. Chatfield Court would be nothing without all of the support and kind words I get after each and every post I share. Whether it’s an original idea or one that you’ve seen before, somewhere else, you are always here to lift me up, give a compliment, tell me what kind of project your working on or to just to say hi, and for that I am truly grateful.

I can’t believe that 2 years have passed since I hit publish on my first post. Little did I know then that 2 years later I would not only still be doing this, but that I would have met so many wonderful people and made so many meaningful friendships. Even if I stopped doing this tomorrow and closed down my blog, I could honestly say that this was one of the best experiences of my life.

Last year for CC’s first anniversary, I had a giveaway and this year I wanted to do something a little different. I don’t usually share a lot about myself so I thought it would be fun to share some little tidbits about me that you may not get from my typical DIY or kitchen reno posts.

Two year blogiversary | chatfieldcourt.comSo here we go…probably more than you ever wanted to know about me. 😉

  • I have a tattoo…just one, and it’s on my right foot. I got it about 6 years ago with my girls when they were going to college in Boston.
  • I am an animal lover. I’ve always had a dog in my life (my husband never had a dog until he married me). I would love to have some chickens but they aren’t allowed in my town.
  • I met my husband when I was 16 years old at a campground that his family and my family were camping at. We met one night during a 4th of July party and we’ve been together ever since. We’ll celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary this September.
  • I love to travel and I’ve even gone on a cruise by myself, twice.
  • Before my back surgeries, I briefly worked for a foot doctor cutting the toenails of elderly diabetic patients. You’ve not lived until someone else’s toenail hits you in the face when you’re clipping…um, yeah…great memories.
  • I grew up getting perms to make my poker straight hair curly…really curly. I got one every 3 months from age 8 until I was 25 (I had long beautiful hair but begged my Mom to get it cut off).
  • I am a huge sports fanatic (while Mr. C could care less). A great weekend for me is hanging out and watching sports.

Ok…have you had enough?

I also have to give thanks to my patient and ever supportive husband. He’s put up with all of this blog business for more than 2 years, listening to my constant chatter of projects I want to do and pushing me forward when doubts about my ability to do this creeps in. Thanks for being my rock and the icing on my cupcake.

Again, many thanks to you. It’s been quite a journey these past 2 years and I’m so excited to see and share what’s to come.

Have a great weekend!

    Congrats Krisit! I am so glad that I met you here in the fabulous land of blogging and I am even happier to see that you feel well enough now to eat that cupcake! Here’s to many more anniversaries, my friend!

      Thanks Kim. I’m so glad that we met too. I want to tell you a little secret…I didn’t actually eat the cupcake. Shhhh, don’t tell anyone. I promised it to my husband if he took my picture (he is a terrible photographer and always refuses to take my picture so I had to bribe him with sweets).
      Thanks so much for your support.

    It helps if I spell your name right… 😉

      Debbie, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your support of CC and your thoughtful comments that you leave every time I post. Thanks so much!

    I love it! The tidbits are great, made me laugh! It’s been great knowing you and maybe some day we will be able to meet in person.
    My hubby gets to listen to me tell him about Kristi and her blog and she said this and she told me to do this and look at what she is doing. He just nods and agrees. LOL
    Wow, since you were 16! We meet at Fisher-Price Toys when we were 19 and go married the following year. We’ll been married 43 yrs. this July.

    Looking forward to more of your postings and hope you are feeling much better!

      I am so thankful that I get to do this and that I’m able to meet great people like you MJ! It would be awesome to be able to meet in person one day.
      I can’t tell you how much your support has meant to me these past two years. When I’m feeling down and like no one is reading the blog, you always have a kind comment waiting for me. And I really enjoy hearing about the projects you’re tackling in your own home and seeing pictures of your progress. I tell my husband MJ stories and he does the same thing your husband does. LOL I think that’s why we get along so well…we understand each other’s pain. 😉
      Wow, 43 years is a long time. Congratulations on your up coming anniversary.
      Thank you again my friend, for your continued support.

    Congratulations on your 2 year blogging anniversary. I always enjoy visiting you thru your blog and seeing what you’re up to. I recently jumped on the Instagram bandwagon and follow you there too.
    It was fun reading through your tidbits, we have a few things in common. But thankfully I have never had to endure elderly flying toenails! Sounds as glamorous as having to clean up cat puke and lizard poop at my job. lol

    Hope you’re feeling better and looking forwards to your next year of blogging.

      Thanks so much Shirlee. I always enjoy you comments when you pop in and I’m so appreciative of your support these past two years.

      As to the flying toenails…you have no idea what you’re missing. 😉 Welcome to Instagram and thanks for following. I would love to follow you back, maybe you could email your insta name.

      I am feeling better today, thanks!, and I’m hoping to get some projects done over the weekend. Hope your is great!

    Congratulations Kristi! (Even though Kim can’t spell your name right, I can :p. Just kidding Kim 😉 )

    Love those pictures and I love your blog 🙂

    I hope you feel better!

      Thanks so much Rue! I feel the same about your blog. So glad I found you!

      Appreciate the well wishes…I am getting back to feeling human again. 😉

    Congratulations and happy blog anniversary. My hat is off to you for helping the elderly care for their feet. My mom lived to be 99, and her feet and toenails needed professional care. I can imagine that it isn’t a pleasant job, but I know that it is greatly appreciated. ‘-)

      Thanks so much Sarah, what a sweet comment! Wow, your mom had a very long life. I tease about cutting toenails but I met so many wonderful patients and they were always so appreciative. I really enjoyed my job.
