One Year


Almost 300 posts.

A year of blogging.

Chances taken

Changes galore

Friendships made

Adventures shared


I absolutely love what this last year of blogging
....my first....has brought into my life.

The people

The experiences

The thrill of discovering new things

about life

and about myself.

I can't say for certain how long I'll keep blogging...

But I can say with absolute certainty

that it's been a thrill ride beyond compare these past 12 months

and I wouldn't trade them for the world.

Love you ALL!

XO,

Anne I am so happy for you and one year of blogging. You have touched my life also! Blogging is just amazing how it connects those who we would otherwise have never met.

Sue said...

I'm so happy I found your blog, I really enjoy reading it and your pictures are over the top! No wonder you want to sell them. The other day I just noticed I had done 700 posts these past two years. Caught me by surprise. I began blogging every day to make myself look a life differently in that each day has a story to be told and to force myself to write more. I can't wait to read 300 more of your posts!

Take care, Sue

Happy, Happy Bloggy Birthday, Anne! I just realized that I began my blog a year ago on July 20th, so we are "newbies" together. I don't even remember how I found your blog, but you certainly have made my life enjoyable as I stop by to see what wonderful goodies you have to share with us of what is going on in your life, your beautiful photography and all of the vintage finds we all drool over.

I so look forward to this second year of blogging with you! (me and 1176 others!!)

Hugs, Anne Girl!
Laurie (and Maya, of course!)
