Happy anniversary to me

Today is my 4-year blogaversary. Is that a word? I doubt it, but if there is one thing I have learned from four years of blogging is that I can write whatever I want. I am my own editor. Scary, no?

I think I deserve a cupcake 😉

For those of you who have been reading for four years (thanks, mom!) know how much I appreciate you coming by. The same goes for those of you who have been reading for four minutes. The best part of blogging comes when I get to connect with people, make new friends and learn new stuff.

So go ahead and leave a comment so we can connect!

    Dear Mel, I found your blog when the 9th street bridge washed out. I moved back from Livingston to Wichita to help my dad in 2/08. A daily check in with your log keeps the dream of returning alive. Thanks for loving the life–and the kids are just extra fun. A big Thank You. ann

    This is me singing you happy blogaversary to you. Wish I could be enjoying that cupcake with you, too! Seriously … yours was the very first blog I ever subscribed to, or even read. Glad you’re still here. 🙂

    I’m kind of blushing right now. I need to congratulate myself more often 😉 Thanks so much to all three of you for the kind words!

    Blogging for four years is quite an accomplishment, Mel. Congrats! I always look forward to your great photos and even though my little ones are teenagers now, you inspire me to get out and adventure. Thanks for that 🙂

    Happy blog anniversary!! Hope you keep writing for four more years – because I love reading! I’ll try to be less of lurker and more of a commenter.

    @Suz- You too, are an inspiration to take the time to enjoy life!

    @Debi- I am so honored to be your first 😉 One of the best things about blogging is making friends and then getting to meet them IRL.

    @Minor Catastrophes– thanks to you for showing me what a future with teenage boys looks like!

    @Michele– yes, less lurking, more commenting 😉 So glad you are here, whether you comment or not.

    @Noelle- Thanks! And thanks for being one of my oldest (longest) friends and still listening to me babble on and on and on….
