HAPPY BIRTHDAY BLOG!

My little blog turns ONE today!!!

Yes, its true...a whole year ago today, I finally started my blog. After some serious self-debating, I decided to just take the plunge...& I'm SO happy I did. It's been such a fun journey.

I started this blog because I wanted to document my real life on something OTHER than just my journal (yes, I still use that, too)...and today I'm proud to say I am still doing it for that reason.


It's so exciting to me to wake up early (this is the first time I've done this in ages), fill this blank white "paper" with words, thoughts, encouragement, excitement, or just simple random bullet points -- which seems to happen a lot. I guess what I am trying to say is, I never want to lose sight as to why I started this blog in the first place.

She's my outlet. I love this little space I can call mine.
I also am so amazed at the people its brought into my lives. Although I haven't met any of them yettttt, that will be changing VERY soon. Being a part of this blogging community has truly made me some amazing new friends. Friends that email and face-time, friends that encourage, friends that pray with me, friends that pray for me, friends who make me laugh, who get me through the work day...and most of all, friends I can count on. I never thought in a million years I'd make REAL friends out of this journey...and I'm happy to say I've proved myself wrong. Way wrong!

So, get your birthday hat on, blog...and make a big wish!
promise I'm not as psycho as I look!
Homemade strawberry & mint lemonade. Mmmmm, is right!
Can't wait to continue making memories to document on my favorite little spot on the internet.
Thanks for everyone who reads my random ramblings, it really does mean the world to me.
So here's to another year of you, little blog of mine!
CHEERS!
