happy birthday, baby bloggy!

Yay!  Today is my little blog's second birthday!  Two years ago today, I sat around in a circle with some friends backstage at a high school play rehearsal for Shakespeare's Macbeth, reading some poems by Edgar A. Guest, and I went home to tap out my (super lame, I-have-no-idea-what-I'm-doing) post on this here bloggy.

I've always loved writing.  It has been my "sanity outlet" for a very long time, even when what I end up writing seems to be total gibberish.  It's wild how gibberish can end up being exactly what someone else needs to hear.  I used to complain about having "writer's block," but now, how I see it: how could I ever have nothing to write about!?  Life is SO full of unexpected adventure and lessons learned and taught.  But, you say, what if my life doesn't seem very adventureful or interesting (yes, I just made up a word)?  To that I say: GO MAKE IT HAPPEN.  It probably sounds silly, but baby blog has been a kind of inspiration for me to try new things.  Or, at least, look at all the weird, life-y happenings, no matter how usual, in a different way.

Life is beautiful.  And it's beautiful to be able to share bits of our lives with each other.

And to those of you who have been with this blog from the start through it's multiple name changes and weird design glitches (don't worry, those are over), those who've jumped on the crazy train along the way, my faithful readers and folks who comment... you rock.  Seriously.  You're like little tiny sparkly raindrops of happiness in my day.

Thank you for a wonderful year.  I'm looking forward to the next one.

Please excuse me while I go hunt down something sweet and delectable to consume in celebration.  Like maybe one of these.
