Happy Blogoversary To Me ...


Today is my first blogoversary. And look ... it's 10:30 pm pacific standard time. I'm getting a post in just under the wire. This morning I woke with grand plans then the day got away from me. Little and I went to yoga and swam in the duckie pool. The boy came home from school early. The husband needed cold medication delivered to work. Class valentines had to be created. And we had a movie to watch ... Vicky, Christina Barcelona. I say never mind Washington DC - I want to go to Barcelona (oh to be financially independent)!

And here I am, on Love Thursday no less, blogging my anniversary. We, you and I, have had so many conversations over the past couple of days. Unfortunately these conversations have all occurred in my schizophrenic head. I've not been able to articulate them. To put them down on paper. So today I'm leaving you with something else. One post per month for you to chew on should you have the time and inclination. Enjoy!

Here's
what started it all.

A wonderful day spent with my daughter.

The beginning of an adventure.

A pile of spectacular kids.

A Texan encounter.

A completed goal.

A loss and a realization.

A merging of souls.

Getting nearly naked in a public place.

Gratitude.

Resolutions.

In the arms of friends.

Thank you to all of you who have been with me this past year. I am eternally grateful for your friendship and kinship. My life is better with you, each and every one of you. I love your comments, your blogs, your hearts and your souls. Reach out. Reach out and grab the virtual kisses and hugs being sent your way. I love you all!

++++++++++

And should you be curious ... here's how the valentines turned out.

Right back at you! Seriously. You are an incredibly talented writer who brightens my life with stories from across the country. I love stories. The real lives of real people. You recreate the details of your life in such vivid detail. I feel as if we are chatting across my table, having coffee. Each time I click over, it's like Christmas morning. You raise the bar with each post. Your body of work this past year is one to be truly proud of! Congratulations! Happy Day to you!

Happy Blogoversary!!! I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog. I've enjoyed reading about your life and learning new things from you. That purple tote I won from one of your giveaways is one of my favorite totes and I think of you each time I use it. The Valentine's turned out stunning. Way to go!
