I can hardly believe that I’ve been blogging for two years now! My blog anniversary was actually May 4th so I’m a few days late, but I say you’re never too late to celebrate, right?
The time has definitely flown by since I decided to create my blog so I could talk about books with other people who loved them as much as I did. When I started my blog, I didn’t know what to expect and I have to be honest and say that I never thought that I’d still be doing it two years later. What started as a hobby has turned into so much more. I definitely didn’t expect to enjoy this so much or to discover such a wonderful community of people who have welcomed me and befriended me the way that so many of you have.
Without a doubt, the most wonderful part of the past two years has been becoming friends with so many of you. I cannot thank you enough for the part that you play in my life each and every day, in big and small ways. It might be talking books, sharing advice, chatting, or just being there for me, but it means so much. These past two years have had its ups and downs: my Lupus diagnosis during my 1st year of blogging; the death of my beautiful dog Branna within weeks of that, which is a pain I still feel every day; the almost every other month flare-ups of my fibro and Lupus; my pulmonary embolism and ICU scare last fall; my dad’s heart attack and bypass surgery within weeks of that; and so many other things. During all these things, I’ve been able to share my stories, my fears, my pain, and I’ve been given love, support, care, comfort, wisdom, and friendship, which is beyond what I can ever thank all of you for.
I want to thank all of my readers and followers for being such a huge part of my life for the past two years. I definitely couldn’t have my blog without all of your continued support. Thank you so much for everything!
Because I’m celebrating my blogiversary, I’m hosting a giveaway as my way of saying thank you to all of you who I care about so much and who have cared so much about me over the last two years. It’s just my small way of saying thank you!
