Happy Blogaversary to me!

Holy Cow!!!
Yesterday was a holiday for me and I COMPLETELY forgot about it!
I've been writing this thing for one whole year!!!
It has been a blessed year too! I have "met" so many new friends on this thing we call the blogosphere, that I catch myself in daily conversations saying things like...
"oh, my friend over in India has a cow and..."
"I have a friend in Utah with three adorable little men, and she bakes bread "with" me!"
"Oh, I have a friend that lives up North and she is an Italian Mama that has had the same experience as me."
I get the weirdest faces when I say these things to "touchable" people... you know... people I can actually touch if I so choose.
People outside the "Blog" persuasion just don't get this whole "blog" thing, and
don't understand the need.
When I do get asked... I usually say something like...
Well... it's like having a pen pal from back in the day...but blogging is like pen palling... on speed!
My husband is so on board with this whole blog thing too. He loves that I do it.
He says it's because he knows my passion is the written word, and I have been much
happier since I started this thing. I have more of an outlet now, and he doesn't have to me my sounding board as much anymore... I can vent with "my girls".
He keeps prodding me to write a book... any book.
So... yesterday... I STARTED!
And to think... I started it on the very day I started my blog.
Weird huh?
Letti started me up on the blog last year.
Thank you so much Letti...
If I hadn't been going with you to that Pictionary game,
I don't know what I would be doing right now!
{Ha! My PC Director would say..."You'd be going with me to Leadership...
that's where you'd be..." } But I don't think so.
Blessings come from the strangest places... don't they?
So... I hope to spend about 3 hours a day writing,
and will hopefully have it done in about 6 months.
If I can't find a publisher... I will self publish and promote.
My brain hurts!
Thank you all who read me for all the comment love, the nice things you say about my men,
and all your sage advice.
Thank you also for not getting all bent outta shape when I have my one of my many
"unsolicited opinion" rants... and for loving me where I'm at.
Here's to many more years of words, love, friendship, and comments...
I really do feel like I know you all...
So I do love ya...
almost as much as I love my luggage.
