It Started Like This

This picture was taken a year ago when blogging was just a faint idea of mine. The predominate thoughts going through my mind were:

How many clips can the possibly fit in my hair?
Why does this have to hurt so much?
I think Ariel has a future as a hair dresser.

A couple hours later we tucked the girls into bed and I sat down at the computer to create a blogger account. I'm not sure what I was doing or what I wanted to accomplish, but the experience started that night has meant more to me than I expected.

This blog is a year old. Like anything that runs the course of a year, my blog has evolved. In the beginning my voice could be heard on a daily basis. Some of it deep and thoughtful. Some of it drivel. Over the summer I wrote very little. Regardless of the frequency or quality of my posts I have recorded my thoughts, family and life for the last year. It is all here.

I can't say that I have a clear direction for the next year, but I can say that there will be another year of blogging. Another year of thoughtful posts and drivel. Another year of capturing my memories because without a place to write it down, I am liable to forget.

Happy Blogiversary!! I enjoy reading your blog and missed you when you took some time off.

I'd say "happy anniversary", but we certainly aren't married to our blogs are we? Although blogging is somewhat like giving birth to something and caring for it as it grows, "happy birthday" doesn't seem to fit either.

Happy Blogiversary!

I think I began reading when you began posting.
