Craig told me Happy Anniversary this morning and I had no idea what he was talking about. Turns out, he remembered the first day I started this blog! Things have changed so much since then. When I started, it was a way to remain sane during the year I homeschooled the kids and was in the middle of finding a home to move into. And it allowed me to be inspired by other artists and crafters who seemed to fit in creativity to their days and actually write about it! Now, I have met some of the nicest and most creative people all over the world! I know I always say that, but actions speak louder than words, and all the support during my time with Hatch and then afterwards, with lots of notes of encouragement, I found out that the world is not a lonely place... people are always there to reach out to. I've also seen true altruism at work whenever a blogger was in need or as simply as being supportive during rough times. I really have no idea why there are ever wars because people are the same all over the world. If there was no greed, everyone would be happy.
So... I woke up thinking that I needed to redesign this blog. It was funny that it was exactly three years from the time I started it. I didn't want to post until I had done that, but then, I realized I wouldn't get it done today and I really wanted to acknowledge my anniversary. I think this is the 844 post! I would've reached a thousand if I had blogged more this past year. Some posts I would like to erase but since it documents my growing as a person, I'll leave them for now. Just when you think you know something for sure, you see something in a new light and have to reconsider. I also can't believe how much my kids have grown in just three years!!! I love looking at their development, both physically and creatively.
I have some ideas for some special things I want to do soon... so stay tuned! And if you're one of the special people who has been here with me for a long time, I really want to thank you! I started this blog so my family could see what I'm up to in different cities, but I have a much bigger group of blog friends that I look forward to hearing from and who are very special to me!
Hope you are having a great day... on Red Yarn's Anniversary!!!
