One Year Ago Today...

I started this post last week and am finally getting around to finishing it.(It is now Monday)

One year ago, Jenny convinced me to start a blog. I was a little hesitant at first, worried that my thoughts, words, photos, and everyday life stories would be a bit boring for anyone else living outside of my home. I then convinced myself this was a great way to journal things that happen in our family on a day to day basis. I have always been terrible at writing in my journal so I thought this would be a fun and easy way to document our happenings. I decided to just jump in with both feet, hoping I wouldn't regret it.

With that said, I can honestly say I am so glad I did this. I feel like I have gained so much from blogging. I have found out things about myself that I never knew existed. I have gained new friends, gotten compliments, great advice, reconnected with a couple of old friends, shared my addictions for one particular food item, cried, laughed, frowned and smiled more times than I can count. I have received and sent good mail, started participating in self portrait challenges, and come to love getting comments on my blog.
So, after 260 posts, a couple of template color changes, and much help from Jenny, I am looking forward to this next year of blogging and documenting my life, and gaining more from you. Happy 1 year to me.
Thanks Jenny for convincing me to do this.

Are you up for a run? I'm going to have to convince myself I can do it, but will need your peer pressure.

Yahoo for one year anniversaries! I am still a bit away from that - but I, too, feel lucky that I was talked into creating such a journey from my sista, Anna. I love the journaling and the friendships along my path.
