1 Year Blogoversary!


1 year (and 2 days) ago I started this blog. I wanted it to be a way for me to journal and always remember all the fun and wonderful things that make me burst into spontaneous applause.

The next day I declared it Nose Hair Appreciation Day and wrote an entire post on how I appreciated having nose hair.

I wrote a post about nose hair. Somehow people kept coming by to see me.


I told you the story of how my mom and I used a lint roller to remove some of my hair as it fell out in patches during chemo.

You laghed and cried with me as I told you the story of my cancer diagnosis.


The food... oh the food we have shared! From chocolate covered bacon at the county fair to multi-course meals at fine dining restaurants I've battered you with pictures of my dinner... and breakfast... and lunch... and elevensies... and second breakfast.


I shared pictures of my engagement session and stories of how B spoils me. I'm sure only rolled your eyes at me a time or two.


I showed you pictures of chubby baby thighs and took you to our local county fair.

And then I got married!! I blogged the entire wedding. You couldn't get away from it. I talked about the craziness that sometimes ensues when planning a wedding and my paranoia about choosing the correct color white. I was ecstatic when you all decided to help me out with my guest books and gave me clever quotes to include in them.

You didn't bat an eye when I explained that I brought my camera around during the day. I documented getting ready and your greatest responses were of the amazing winter wonderland my reception turned out to be. Professional pictures done by Adrienne are here and she is so incredibly fantastic.

Let's not forget the 1001 cranes that some of you helped me fold. I will be forever indebted to you.


I took you with me to New Zealand where we went Black Water Rafting, visited Hobbiton and and went hikiing on the Franz Josef Glacier.

I made you look at all kinds of pictures of food and told you about a very special dinner we had at Le Pot Au Feu in Christchurch.


What seems like only days later I was telling you about my chemofied eggs and announcing my pregnancy. It has been such a complete joy sharing my pregnancy with you. I love the memories you share with me when I talk about the little nudges I'm getting from Peanut.

This last year has been a really wonderful year and I'm so glad to have shared it with you. You've become my friends and I really, truly treasure that.

Blogging has been an experience all it's own.. from getting started and checking my statcounter and follower count daily to using it just to document and share moments with you. I can hardly believe it when I look back at this past years posts.

You are the bestest friends (who I've never met in real life) a girl could ask for! Here is to another great year!
