We only turn one once. The parental units, siblings if applicable, extended family, and friends make a big to-do about the 365th day of your life. It’s too bad we can’t remember our first birthdays. But I’m blessed to celebrate a new first birthday–today, February 18, 2011 marks one year since I put out my first post. Over the last year, I’ve watched my baby creep out into the world. She’s taken up lots of my time, she’s kept me creative and busy, and she’s forced me to rethink certain parts of my life. Some days, I don’t know what to do with her, but she’s brought me joy and a unique sort of personal growth, and I’m all the better for it.
I get to share my thoughts and life’s interesting times, along with a bunch of random crap (and by ‘random crap’ I mean ‘wonderful stuff’). The icing on the cake is that a bunch of people I love as well as people I’ve never met, will celebrate these things with me. The bright bubblegum pink sprinkle on the icing on the cake is that every so often, someone will understand my randomness and connect with it.
So I thank you, dear readers both sporadic and regular, for stopping here during your busy days to read to my stories, and for your support and interaction. I do hope that you’ll keep following as I figure it all out, and I welcome all communication, feedback and suggestions. I appreciate all the ways you’ve warmed my heart during this first year of blogging as Sunny Global Diva.
