Reflections

Two years ago today, I was working at a (awful)job that gave me a lot of time on the computer, I had family spread out across the globe, and I had some stories that were just bursting to get out of my system.

So I started this blog. My first post was this one, in which I learned what the term "getting laid" actually meant. (Don't worry, it's not a sex post!).

I've been rereading some of my first posts, and thinking about where I was at that point in my life. I was five months away from marrying Matthew, up to my eyeballs in wedding plans, and so full of excitement and anticipation.

If I could tell that girl anything, I'd tell her that she will be blessed beyond her wildest expectations by the next two years. She will marry a hard-working, loving man, she will move into a great little house on the banks of a creek with her goofy dog, and SURPRISE! She will give birth to the most beautiful little boy.

I don't know what I expected when I started this little website, I guess I thought maybe I'd be able to give my family a good laugh with some old stories, goofy pictures, and tales of life now. I didn't expect to gain friendships, find a new community, and learn so about life, but that's what happened!

So, thank you. Thanks for reading, thanks for commenting, thanks for caring!

(And gag, I promise not to make this sappiness a recurring thing! It's the hormones folks!)

  1. I read some of my earlier posts and cringe.
    At the same time, where does the time go?
