One Year Ago...

Princess themed 1st Birthday cake

Today is my Blogiversary. Or as we say in the South West, birthday-oh de blog-oh.
One year ago today I wrote this magical work of art and I haven't looked back. Well, actually that is not true. I have looked back a lot. But I have never regretted starting the blog.
I think I have finally settled into a good place, a place where I am comfortable just being me, regardless of who is reading (Hi Mrs. B! I love you!). Because this is me. I am not pretending to be someone different. My life is not perfect. I am not perfect. But, I started this blog as a tool to get my thoughts and ideas and emotions out of my head so it wouldn't explode. And I feel I have been very successful.
So thanks for sharing this journey with me. I can't wait to see where it takes us in the future.
So you may be wondering how I have been celebrating this momentous occasion. Are you sure you can handle it? Okay, twist my arm.
Get this, first I went to work. (Which kind of sucks a little bit lately. I'm trying to get up the courage to talk to you about it.) Then, I picked up the kids and hit the grocery store (where I ran into the The Maid's Butler). I know, how could I handle this much fun in one day, right? Finally I came home, unpacked the groceries, unloaded the dishwasher, made dinner for everyone else and ate 8 green olives straight from the jar. Then I wanted to be sick. Now I am washing it down with a tall cold glass of diet ginger ale. In a few minutes I will take a shower and then go to bed.
I know dudes. It's a wonder why I don't have a throng of paparazzi outside waiting for me. I am such a rock star.

I think you're a rockstar. How else would I get to pretend that we live near each other and I got to see you daily, if not for your blog?
