a dream come true

This is where it all began for me, just a little over a year ago. I discovered, quite by accident, a magazine called Artful Blogging. And I was hooked.

After reading several issues, a little seed started to grow in my mind… I can do this. I should do this. I want to do this.

And so I did. I started this blog last February 16th, so my blog birthday is coming up. And yesterday I got the best present in the mail. An advance copy of the next issue of Artful Blogging. An advance copy because my blog is in it! It was like Christmas and my birthday and a whole lot of other celebrations all wrapped up in one. There has been a lot of happy dancing going on. And smiling. And thanking.

It has been a crazy wonderful year, and mostly, I want to say thank you to YOU. I had no idea what I was doing when I started all this, no idea at all. But because of you, the wonderful people who read and encourage and support and comment, one of my dreams has come true.

There will be some giveaways coming up in the next few weeks to celebrate being published for the very first time, my blog’s birthday, and you.

Because I am so, so grateful.

Thank you. Yes, you.

Love you.
