Happy Blogversary To Me

19 Jul

I began this blog two years ago. In two years time, a lot has changed – and not just for me, for everyone – that’s just how life works.

Two years ago I was living in a small town (again) and my commute to work was over an hour each way. Now, I’m living in a bigger town (the second largest and second oldest in Georgia, thank you very much) and my commute to work is exactly 8 minutes each way. A bit longer if I get stuck by a train.

Two years ago I wasn’t very happy with the “life choices” I was making. I couldn’t be happier with the ones I’m making now.

Two years ago I worried a lot about what other people thought. I worried a lot in general. I wasn’t sure where my life was headed or what “my plan” was. Now I know that you make “plans” and God laughs – things usually fall into place the way they are supposed to.

Two years ago I wanted an outlet. I started this blog nervously, wondering if I should send the link out to my family and friends or just keep it to myself. Now, I usually begin my conversations with, “If you read this on my blog, just tell me and I won’t repeat it.” (Not only do I invite my family and friends to read it, I expect them to – how arrogant, right?) And, I have readers all over this country…and in others, too. That’s a very cool feeling, y’all. It means the absolute world to me.

If you wander over to my neck of the internet every now and again, or every day, or only have this one time – I hope that my little blog has entertained you – at least for a minute or two. I hope to have made you laugh, or reminded you of a fond memory (or bad outfit) you had forgotten about. Thank you for your readership, your comments and for allowing me to share my words and thoughts with you.

My cup runneth over.

This week, in honor of my blogversary (and the fact that I’m super-duper short on time), I will be reposting some of my favorite entries.
