One year ago today, I took the leap, and started this blog.
I told no one, trying to find my way before I allowed others to view my thoughts and ramblings. It didn't last, because things are public, and people found out. It worked out well.
So here I am, one year; three hundred fifty one posts; nineteen thousand hits; and one additional child later and I have logged many hours at the computer documenting the lives of my sweet kiddos. I am so very happy I started this adventure, and am thrilled to have this to look back on later. I have discovered that I have a few talents I didn't know about, and that people are entertained by my crazy life. I love the fact that this has been an outlet for me to recognize the humor in my rough days, and that I have become part of a little community of people who I would have never met, but have now consider friends.
Wow, that sounded cheesy.
But it is true. I love blogging, and I love the friends I have developed through blogging. I love that my hubby can come home from work knowing that I had a rough day, and bring me chocolate without me even having to ask. I love that my parents and my brother and sister-in-law can feel more involved in our kids' lives, even living 100 miles(ish) away.
So today I will celebrate my blogaversary with... something. I had all these ideas for what I could do, but let's be honest here, I'm just happy I got the blogaversary post out on the actual blogaversary, not out tomorrow but back-dated to today.
Maybe to celebrate, I'll take a long, glorious bubble bath. Or maybe just a shower. Yeah, that's more like it.
