I guess it was fate that this evening made me notice that October was my anniversary month. I decided to click on through and see what the actual day was. Lo and behold, it was 8 October of last year that I began blogging.
So much has changed:
I have twins.
I still have my husband.
I have gotten support that I never imagined from a group of people I can't even see who live inside my computer.
I am older.
I am wiser.
I am more humble.
I am both happier and sadder.
I am way, way more tired.
This seems the perfect time to say thank you to those of you who read my blog. I'm constantly amazed by the fact that I have regular readers. Are y'all gluttons for punishment? For the most part (twin pictures excluded), I'm not exactly a ray of sunshine in your day. But I don't want to deter you because your comments and your presence in my life mean a lot to me. I've been lucky enough to meet a few of you in person, and you've been even more amazing in real life than in blogville.
In any case, thank you. Thank you. And an invitation to any lurkers out there: take this opportunity to say hello if you'd like.
Here's to many more years of this.
