My baby blog's birthday!

Holy cow, my little blog turns 1 year old today! Happy Birthday baby!


I'll get a little serious here for a second so I hope you bear with me.

Since I started this blog, I've learned a lot. There were some ups and downs, people who were hurt along the way and lessons learned, but I can say that starting this has changed a lot of things for me. It's opened up doors career-wise and introduced me to some pretty awesome and amazing people, in and out of Chicago. And for that, this is one of the best things I've done.

So I want to say two things:

1) Happy birthday baby blog 

2) Thank you to everyone who reads my little blog and comments. I love hearing what you have to say and I'm so glad that you all come to visit (lurkers and all)

When I started this, I never thought I would keep it up past three months, and here I am, one year later. Cheers, and here's to another good year with all the exciting things still to come. 

And yes, I'm totally getting a cupcake later to celebrate :)

You know it's funny but December 19th is my blogs bday. ALthough right now it is still the 18th out here in the West.

I think I had like 2 posts in December 07 and didn't really start posting on a regular basis till about May.

About 2 posts ago it was my 100th. I think people should send us presents.

Blogging has taught me a lot about myself since I started too. It is great to read back and see how I have changed.

Also to be serious for a moment(which is something I hardly ever do), reading your blog is what inspired me to keep writing mine. Just thought you should know :)
