thanks for a great year!

This blog turns one on January 9th. Wow. I can’t believe it’s been a whole year already! It’s as if it was just yesterday I was waking up in the middle of the night to tend to my blog. Now, it sleeps at least eight hours each night and I’ve just started feeding it solid foods like Cheerios (it still prefers to be breastfed, though.) Before I know it, my blog’s going to be walking soon and won’t need me anymore. 😦

Since I’ll be pretty busy on my blog’s actual birthday, I thought I’d post this today. I just wanted to say THANK YOU. Yes. YOU. Thank YOU. Thanks for reading my blog. Writing is my passion, and being in community with others comes in at a close second. This blog has turned in to a way for me to experience both at levels I’d never dreamed of. So thank you. Thanks for letting me be vulnerable with you. Thanks for letting me be honest. Thanks for letting me a little bit of a mess sometimes. Thanks for giving my musings an audience. And most importantly, thanks for being a free therapist to me. You know, with the economy these days…

  1. Well, I guess I just finished your first year’s worth of blogging. You’re fun.

    P.S. I just started to comment about how maybe we were separated at birth because of how much we have in common, but then I thought, “maybe that’s creepy” and deleted it, but apparently I have no problem being creepy because I’m still telling you about it.
