Happy Anniversary!!

Thank you, dear readers! You've been my virtual sustenance for 365 days. Yup, it has been a year since I began this blog. Time flies when you procrastinate like I do!

It has been an interesting year. I've made many new friends, kept my extended family up to date with our adventures, and I've learned so much from the blogging community! I'm always so curious about you--so many of you I don't know at all. Every now and then my ticker tells me that someone from Easton, PA (where I once lived) or Wasilla, AK (Hi Gri!), or some other exotic or mysterious place has come to visit. And it gets my imagination going. Who are you?

So, if you're game, leave me a comment, introduce yourself! You already know way more about me and Hannah than you ever wanted to know, but yet, you keep coming back. For this I am grateful. You listen to me whine, laugh with me when my kid does something ridiculous (or ridiculously cute), encourage me when I'm disheartened, and you keep me behaving. Sort of behaving. I know. It's a hard job. But I appreciate your efforts!


In gratitude, I give you another opportunity to smile:

Hannah's attempt at teaching a school of fish how to dance:



Thanks for a great year!
