We enjoyed some delicious cupcakes at the New York City based Magnolia Bakery while celebrating our 2 year Blogiversary today!

This week’s photo challenge is Achievement and it was pretty ironic and also perfect timing to receive this message from WordPress this morning: 

Celebrating 2 years of blogging today!

Celebrating 2 years of blogging today!

I started this blog 2 years ago, and it was right before my family and I made the big life changing move to Finland!  We have been very busy settling into our new home (our 2nd expat experience), so I have been a little behind on keeping up with my blog lately.  We even had to purchase a car this past week (something we didn’t need while living in Finland). There is so much more to see and do here and it can be quite overwhelming at times. We are hoping to see and experience as much as possible while we are living here.

When I decided to start this blog, I never knew how much it would actually change my family’s life.  There is so much more adventure and excitement and we have all made friends from many different countries and cultures.  Our upcoming year will be full of adventure as well… and will include a visit to Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Desert Camping, Sea Kayaking, and Golf Lessons just to name a few. We are truly grateful for all we have experienced since starting this blog and are looking forward to many more adventures!

Thanks so much to the above 97 countries who have visited my blog in the past 2 years! Truly an achievement when I see how many countries are now colored in on my WordPress stats! Amazing!!

Thanks so much to everyone from the above 97 countries 🌎 who have visited my blog in the past 2 years! I would never have imagined it would be viewed in so many places around the world.  It is pretty cool to see how many countries are now colored in on my WordPress stats map! I am now encouraged to focus more on my blog and get some more posts written.  Our visit to St. Petersburg, Russia is finally up next and I’m really looking forward to getting back into reading more of my fellow bloggers’ adventures too! Cheers to another year of blogging! 🍷

Here’s a link to my most popular blog post over the past 2 years and the biggest achievement from our travels so far:
