It's My Blogoversary!

Yes, my many, many (many) (I know of least 8 family members) readers, it has indeed been a year since I have brightened your days with my blogging presence. Counting this one, I have now posted 256 TIMES. Whew. I have learned a lot since that very first blog post where I went into excruciating detail about an episode of "Bones".

I wasn't sure at that point exactly what I was going to be writing about. To be honest, I'm still not sure. Maybe you have noticed that? In the past year, I have written about everything from silly topics like shoes and napping to more serious ones like the death of my father and the importance of my family and friends. I've enjoyed the writing. I've enjoyed reading all the posts again in anticipation of doing some sort of yearly overview. And, without further ado (although you KNOW I do like the ado), here is one post from each month last year about which I am pretty proud. For one reason or another.

January, 2007: I love napping. So, I wrote a whole blog post about it.

February, 2007: I often write about my job as a Library Media Specialist in an elementary school and how much I love it. After reading over this list, sometimes I wonder why.

March, 2007: This letter to my parents-in-law made my husband cry. It made me cry when I just reread it.

April 2007: I have written several posts about our travels, but this one about climbing a waterfall is one of my favorites.

May, 2007: Unfortunately, I still have the muffin top I wrote about in this post.

June, 2007: I love all of my friends and write about them often, but this post about a dinner out is one of my favorite.

July, 2007: I write about my grandson pretty often, but this post about our art class this summer brings back some great memories.

August, 2007: I tried writing a few flashback posts about my childhood and I enjoyed this one about losing every article of clothing I owned. Almost.

September, 2007: And then. Whenever I get too full of myself, something like this happens.

October, 2007: October was the month of PUERTO VALLARTA so, even though other things may have happened that month, pretty much my whole life revolved around that trip. My favorite post about it was the one about all the great food. Nom, nom, nom. Great food.

November, 2007: I write book, tv, and movie reviews sometimes, but I feel pretty proud about this one reviewing The Fountain. Especially since it made some total stranger really irate. "I hate pessimistic people like you..." Snort with laughter. He really knows me, DOESN'T HE?

December, 2007: I write about food pretty often but I like this post about how fast food has changed - or have we?

So. Thanks for hanging around all year. Thanks for reading. Thanks for commenting. It means a lot to me that you came to this party. I hope you'll stick around for another year. Or two.

Happy Blogaversary!

I didn't click on the links to the old posts, because I laughed as I read you describing them, because I remembered them that well! (LOVE the art class with Wesley post!)

Now I feel compelled to go find out when the heck MY blogaversary is... geesh, I can't remember when I started!
