I can't believe I've had this blog/website for a year. It really seems so much shorter than that. Through this past year, I have learned a lot about myself--and others. I've learned that my mom is my number one fan, but I'm my kid's number one fan, so that doesn't surprise me too much. Love you, Mom! I've learned that some things spin way out of control, and others fall flat on their faces. I've learned that as fun as "making memories" is, if I don't write it down, I'll forget about it. (Speaking of which, I still need to write about our anniversary from 2 weeks ago...)
When I set out a year ago, I had all these great expectations of what it would be like. My wisdom would pour through my fingers and I would go viral within two months; people from around the world would have my web address saved in their bookmarks; I might even be asked to speak or write books. Well, um, yeah, that didn't happen. And now that I think about it, I'm not really sure why I thought all those things. And more importantly, I am so glad none of that happened! I'm actually happy with my 40 recurring visitors.
I thought I would do more date ideas. I had great ideas of alphabet dates and other fun stuff, but alas, life got in the way. We still went on dates, but mainly just for celebrations. So that's my goal for this next blog-year. Do the alphabet date thing. That will be fun. I just have to make sure life doesn't accidentally "happen" again. Everything else, though, I think I'm happy with.
Anyway, I wanted to give my blog a present, so I redesigned it. A little. Well, okay, a lot. I like it, do you?
