It's My 1 Year 4 Day Blogiversary!

One Year Blogiversary


Who knew? What a year it's been. My original vision was just to post one picture per day. And I kinda thought that might even be a stretch.

And here I am: 375 posts, 1400+ photos later, with a space that's been beautified by the amazingly talented Darcy. Way more than a photo a day. Way more fun. Everything has become a candidate for blog fodder, and my whole family has played along with me.

I've met the nicest people along the way -- people I haven't even met in "real life" who stop by to say "hi". And some of them, I've even gotten to meet for reals. And I know I'll be meeting more blog friends in the future (y'all will let me know when you're in my neck of the woods, right?!?)

The real surprise (to me) is that my photo hobby blog has awakened my desire to try my hand at being a "professional" photographer. We'll see where that goes this year... Stay tuned. :-)

Thanks for joining me in the journey. :-)

Congratulations!!! I love the photo collage too. And just so you know, we totally plan to drive down to see you just so our families can hang together. I know your oldest, Harry Potter/Star Wars loving boy and my oldest, Harry Potter/Star Wars loving boy are destined to be great friends!

How cool is that?!

Congrats on this milestone. Your posts are always ones I look forward to. Watching your talent grow and grow and blossom in to this has been such fun from the sidelines.

I look forward to the next milestone...

Have you exceeded your photo storage on Blogger yet? I worry about running out of room. lol

Congrats on a year! I love your blog. Your photos are fabulous and bring me such joy. I'm glad you're here. Here's to another year of awesomeness!

Susan~ Congratulations on this huge milestone! I look forward to your pictures every day. That collage is one of the happiest, radiant images I've seen in a long time.

I can't wait to see what this next year has in store for you. Big things, I'm guessing. :)

Happy Blogaversary!!!

Ya know, you have inspired my middle child to take more pictures than ever before... She takes my camera more than I would like... and even w/o asking a few times... uh oh ya she did... but she asks now *Ü*

So glad I found you.... I’m not sure if it was through Darcy or WTM forums... but glad I did... and uh... I am one of those peeps who hopes to meet you on our travels South... *Ü*


Happy Thanksgiving!
