It’s hard to believe that three years ago this weekend, I was sitting in Panera with a good friend — and hit publish. I hoped that my little “project” would be successful, that I would grow as a writer and be able to encourage other moms in the trenches.

I hope that I’ve succeeded.

This weekend, we’re having a little party to celebrate three years of “Life as MOM.”

Grab a cupcake or a slice of apple pie. Pour a cup of tea or coffee and let’s walk down memory lane!

  5. Hi Jessica,
    I just wanted to say thank you for your blog! I look forward to reading it every day and seeing what you have to say in regards to motherhood, frugal living and cooking. I want to be a good steward of all the resources the Lord has given me and I feel your blog helps me do that. I believe the Lord has given you a gift and I’m grateful you share it. The Lord uses our trials to bless others and perhaps out of your journey through debt, He has used it to help others get out of debt or stay out of debt. God is so good like that!! Happy Mother’s Day!!!!!! K.

      @K., God does bring good out of a multitude of crazy situations, doesn’t He? I’m amazed at how that journey is working out. And I remember feeling so discouraged in the middle. Hope that I can help other people along the way.

      Thanks for your encouragement!

  6. How neat that your blogiversary coincides with Mother’s Day! Enjoy both! Thanks for all you share with your readers.

    Happy Anniversary!


    Happy Early Birthday! May you never turn 40!

    You have inspired me to not only be more intentional in my life as mom, but also to be a yes mom. You’ve helped me start realizing that “Enough is as good as a feast.”

  8. Jen Fitzpatrick says

    OK, it was bad enough in this post that you had to mention “grab a piece of pie”, because I automatically thought of the apple slab pie. Then you had to post a yummy looking picture of it! I could eat a whole pan of it myself (and probably have!). Thank you for all of your posts, you are definitely an inspiration, and I look forward to continuing to learn more and more as the years go by! 🙂

      @Jen Fitzpatrick, HA! It does sound good, doesn’t it? Unfortunately it’s not one of the cookbook recipes that still needs testing. We know it’s perfect, don’t we?

  9. Congrats!

  10. Pamela J says

    Congratulations! I look forward to reading your blog every day and learning from you and your lovely family.

  11. Mary E.S. says

    Congratulations on your 3 year anniversary! I found your blog not long after you started and have enjoyed it immensely.

  12. Kelley says

    Happy Birthday blog and Congratulations to you! You must be certain now that your words touch and help mothers (and other care takers) everywhere all the time. You are a brilliant writer and I love this blog. I hope you continue to enjoy writing it. Have a fun celebration weekend!

  13. Happy Birthday! You’ve always inspired me both as a mom and as a blogger! I’m so glad that your blog is here!

  14. Congrats!

    You never cease to encourage me :). Have a blessed day.

  15. Happy Birthday!!! It’s amazing how long three years is in BlogWorld.

  16. Congratulations on 3 years at Life as Mom! It’s an amazing blog, and you’re an amazing writer. 🙂

  17. Carole says

    I’m so glad you went to Panera that day because yours is my “voice of reason” blog: sometimes I read other blogs and they stress me out with how I’m not saving enough money or eating as healthily as possible, but you are my go-to blog for nurturing and peace 🙂
    oh- and the world’s best EVER mac n’ cheese recipe- Oprah had “change your life” tv, Lifeasmom has “change your life” mac n’ cheese!
    Happy, Happy, Blog Bday!!
    Happy Mother’s Day, FishMama!
    p.s. I’m asking for Slab Apple Pie for Mother’s Day 🙂

    • Jessica Fisher says

      @Carole, can I quote you?! “Voice of reason” sounds really good for a resume, doesn’t it? Thanks for your kind words.

    Love your blog, as you already know! Thanks so much for all your hard work!

  20. Congratulations on 3 years! I look forward so much to seeing your post email every morning, and I learn so much from every post. Thank you for your dedication and hard work. Yes, I would say you have been wildly successful.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
