Today is my one year "Blogiversary" ! Until I found out we were moving to Germany, I really never had a clue what a blog was. I decided to start a blog to keep family and friends up to date what was going on in our new life. I figured it was easier than repeating the same email over and over again or doing a mass email.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would become such an important part of my new life here. I don't think I would have made it through the first year without the support I have gained here in my virtual world.
A lot of people don't get blogging, and a lot of my friends don't ever read it that's fine too! But when they ask me what's new, I say read my blog! I appreciate all the wonderful people who read and follow me. I know it can be consuming and some people feel guilty for not always commenting or reading. I follow a lot of blogs but I have more time on my hands than most. Plus I'm avoiding doing my German Homework!
Blogging for me not to sound all mushy, but has been a lifesaver in many ways. I feel like I have many conversations with friends and am a part of something. I get to laugh, cry and smile at so many people's posts. I've gained recipes, decorating ideas, jokes, stories, information, history, facts, photography pointers and ideas. I've gained friendship, wisdom, patience, love, acceptance and prayer and so much more.
I want to thank each and everyone of you for making my life so rich! Now lets have some CAKE!
