Oh Joy

5 years ago i started a blog...
1 Sep 2010


I can't believe how quickly time flies! This month, we're celebrating our 5-year blog anniversary. It all started with this post and was initially a site for friends & family only. So we've definitely changed and grown a lot since then, and I never would have expected to still be blogging 5 years later. Whether you've been reading since the beginning or just arrived here today, a HUGE, ginormous, monster thanks to all of you for reading and supporting this blog and my work. I can honestly say that this blog has been one of the best things things I've ever done {And let's not forget Beth who encouraged me to start it}. The chance to share my point of view with you, the people I've met and interacted with {physically & virtually}, the amazing opportunities and experiences that I've encountered, and most importantly the friends I've made along the way, has meant the world to me in so many ways that I cannot express other than my deepest thanks. So, in celebration of 5 years, there will be lots of fun things in store this month. And today, we're kicking it all off with a new contributor and a new column coming up soon!
