Happy Birthday to Me

Now, it’s not really my birthday, but I am celebrating a birthday—kind of. One year ago this month, I started writing my blog!

While I must admit it’s added another to-do item on my list, I have thoroughly enjoyed it! I’ve always wanted to keep a journal, and this is the closest I’ve come to it in years. I love having a brief record of fun family gatherings, major events, and other daily activities.

I’ve also enjoyed the interaction with you. Ideally, of course, I could chat on the phone with each of you a few times a week (smile), but since that’s not possible, this is a great alternative. I love reading your comments, answering your questions (when I can), and just feeling like we have a dialogue of sorts.

It’s been fun to think about what I’m doing each week and what type of things you’d be interested in. I also enjoy anticipating sharing a project with you as I’m creating in my stamp studio. Even my family has good-naturedly accepted the fact that many of the happenings in their lives are out there for everyone to read about. (They’re good sports!)

So thanks for a great first year! I’m looking forward to continuing this fun new adventure!
