happy birthday, little blog!

one year ago today i started this little blog of mine as a way to share snapshots of our lives with our family and friends.  honestly, i didn't know if i would stick with it for a few weeks, let alone a whole year!

in the past year this little blog has become so special to me, and i'm proud of it.  it has become my online scrapbook.  it has also become a creative outlet for me and has created a lovely little routine for me.  more importantly though, it has forced me to look at life just a little bit differently, teaching me to focus on finding the extraordinary in the ordinary of each day.  

through blogging i have had the opportunity to meet so many amazing people.  people who i would not have otherwise met.  i love that my blog has both introduced me to new friends and connected me with old ones too.

each day, i am so very humbled by the fact that anyone other than my immediate family voluntarily reads what i have to say, and i appreciate so very much each time that someone takes the time out of their busy day to leave a comment on one of my posts.  

so, i just wanted to take a moment to say, thank you!  thank you for reading, thank you for your support, thank you for your feedback, and thank you for being my online friends.  it means so much to me, and i am so very grateful.

happy birthday, little blog!
love, laurie
