Two years


Two years ago today, I published my first post to this blog. I'd been an avid reader of blogs for a long time and thought it might be fun to have my own, but I wasn't sure I had enough to say.

Well.

Blogging has been such a happy addition to my life. I truly enjoy my interactions with other bloggers; we are birds of a feather. I've come to cherish this little space. I love to share my hobbies, my thoughts and ideas and our family life with like-minded people. I love knowing that you're out there, caring about the same things I do, looking for joy in every day. Thank you, friends, for reading and for being supportive and kind. Thank you for inspiring me.
