Happy 1st Anniversary!!

Good Afternoon to all my Friends and Family!! I was curled up with a warm cup of my favourite flavoured coffee and looking at the calendar when it dawned on me....Holy Moly!! It has been a year since I started this blog! I am just in awe at how fast the time has flown and the people I have met along this journey so far.

For those who do not know how a blog works ( and I am still learning as I go! ha!!) there are pages attached that show me which countries readers come from (which has been really cool! My kids and I have discovered country names we have never heard of before!!) and and page with a graph that shows me how many people have read my blog that day, that week, month and that year. There are other pages but those are my favourite.

Its been an amazing journey so far this year. I can not believe how much has happened just in my own personal family...losses...great achievements...new jobs...And even as I am writing this a huge storm is attacking Eastern Canada and USA today after leaving some smaller countries like Cuba laying in devastation. I sit here in the warmth and safety of my home and wonder how many of those people maybe joined our little family here and are they safe?

What an amazing year, I have to say! When I first set 'pen to paper' I was not to sure how this was going to fare. Would I actually keep it going? Would anyone actually want to read what I had to say? (According to the statistics...over 4500 of you did!! WooHoo!!) And I know compared to huge blogs out there those aren't huge numbers...but for someone who started with 93 people the first month...thats way exciting to see...and from people spanning the entire globe! WOW!!

So thank you everyone!! Without you there would be no Happy 1st Anniversary!!
