Don’t get me wrong – it’s not that I don’t love blogging. It’s just that so much has happened in three years.
It’s humbling to look back at how SS&GF has grown. And, really, how I’ve grown too because this little blog is an extension of who I am in so many ways.
I still remember writing my first post, pushing ‘publish,’ and wondering if anyone would read it. (No one did.) And, Joe often reminds me how excited I was when I got my first comment and when Linda from The Gluten-Free Homemaker invited me to join her linky party.
He reminds me, too, how I thought that I’d hit it big when I finally had 100 subscribers.
I never dreamed I’d write a book, co-found a popular, collaborative blog or a food blogger conference. Nor did I think I’d have the most supportive, loving circle of girlfriends. (Love you ladies so very much!!!!!!)
I most certainly didn’t think I’d ever be so moved by the love and support of my readers. You continue to touch my heart in a deep way.
For obvious reasons, my blog birthday sends me into thoughts of gratitude.
Will you help me celebrate my 3rd year by sharing three things you’re grateful for?
- Nate, my love, my heart and soul
- I get to be a work-at-home mommy
- My devoted husband who is also the most involved and supportive father
Wishing all of us many more years of sharing and growing together!
