Fourth Blogiversary

Animated happy face emoticon with fireworksToday, I’m celebrating my fourth blogiversary! Double eights are auspicious, a symbol representing infinity, so may this blog continue to expand and grow infinitely! I can’t believe how quickly the time has passed since I first nervously pressed ‘publish.’ I look back at that post and see how far I’ve truly come. It is a satisfying expansion and evolution.

I want to acknowledge and thank all of you who have found something here worth following, your many kind comments, compliments and likes.

Most importantly, thank you for welcoming me into your own blogs, sharing your creativity, ideas and news. I’ve learned, grown and become more through your inspiring posts and feel that many of you have become dear friends. I am proud to be a member of this marvelous WordPress community. May we enjoy many more fruitful years together!
