Happy Birthday To My Blog

It is hard to believe that I started this blog two years ago. I toyed with the idea for a long time before I actually secured a site, picked a name and actually did my first blog post.  I have changed some things along the way.  I decided to change the look a little in celebration of my two years of blogging.   I have heard that blogging is sort of on the way out, and that with Instagram, Instagram Stories, Vlogging and YouTube that not many people blog anymore. I don’t think that’s true.  I still read a lot of blogs and I really enjoy having a blog. I have posted 107 blog posts in the last two years.   I will tell you why I love blogging.


  1. It is a great way to keep a running diary of day to day events.
  2. I have met and shared things, and actually become really good friends, with some fellow bloggers.
  3. It is definitely a way to express myself in a way I didn’t know was possible.
  4. It makes me more aware of the things I do, places I visit and things I discover.
  5. I tend to want to experience more.  I want to try new adventures and share them with you.
  6. It has made me more aware of me as a person.  Reading back through past blogs makes me appreciate what I have and how I have grown in different ways.

I feel like my blog has come a long way since I first started blogging.  I have learned so much.  I am going to list some of my favorite posts from the last two years and also my first blog post ( I am a little embarrassed by this one, I had no idea what I was doing)

My second post was about losing my brother Allen.  Today is the second anniversary of his death and I am really missing him.

Here are a few of my favorite posts and my very first one.

I hope you have enjoyed reading my blog whether you are a long time reader or just started reading.   I have so enjoyed the last two years and look forward to many more.

Love your day your way!!
