Happy 3rd Birthday, Book Coffee Happy!

Ahhhh my favorite hobby turned 3 years old last week! Happy Birthday, Book Coffee Happy!

3 years of books, blogging, making new book friends, book discussions, authors so graciously sending me their books, and so much more. Aaaaaand…3 years of me teaching myself how to build, maintain, and GROW a website! I’m definitely proud of myself πŸ™‚

3 years of YOU! My dearest blog readers! Some of you I know in real life, most of you I do not. Thank you from the very bottom of my heart for reading my blog. I have faithfully been reading other people’s blogs since 2007 (!) and I absolutely love that I now have one of my very own. Thank you for signing up with your email address to follow my blog, for commenting on blog posts, for following/commenting on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter (still not completely sure how to use Twitter), YouTube (I rarely post on YouTube but it’s such fun when I do), for buying things through my Amazon Affiliate links, and for your overall support. NOTHING makes me happier or more proud as a blogger than when someone tells me that they read a book based on one of my suggestions and it has become a new favorite for them. Mission accomplished πŸ™‚

I take this space very seriously and I always try my best to write posts that I personally would love to read. Book reviews, book suggestions, book giveaways, book discussions, aaaaaaand some bits here and there of my personal life. I simply CANNOT write this blog without bits of my personal life creeping in here and there but I do focus mostly on books in this space. Perhaps the hardest part of blogging has been to not talk in any details about my children! I have never once said their names or shown their faces in this space and that has been HARD. Being a mom is the greatest gift and not talking about them hurts my heart. Maybe one day they will make a blog appearance…

This past year of blogging has been filled with all kinds of adventures!

A few highlights:

The return of IN PERSON browsing throughout my beloved library

I visited the most amazing bookstore I’ve ever seen

A blog post of mine went VIRAL (SO. FREAKING. COOL.)

I became a “Library Hero”

I read the very best book I’ve ever read

I got a new job

…and so much more! THE BEST quarantined family vacations and more all in the face of a global pandemic.

How I usually look while I’m reading. Robe, coffee, and glasses!

This blog has always been so important to me but I was especially thankful for it during the past year. When the outside world was a scary place, I was still able to enjoy reading and blogging from the safety of my home. Reading was the PERFECT activity to have during the past year! I hope my little blog was able to provide you with some suggestions of things to read for your mind to escape when your body truly wasn’t able to leave. I love the following quote so, so much: “Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.” How PERFECT is that quote to describe the past year????

Happiest of Birthdays to you, Book Coffee Happy. Thank you for being my most creative outlet and my most favorite hobby. I can’t wait to see where the future will take us!
