Twas 5 years ago today when this wee little blog started.


My first post is here.

Check out the comments.  We taught Pa what a blog was.

We had 2 kids.

They looked like this:

As a family, we looked like this:

Lainey Caroline was still a dream in my head.  We had no clue that not 1/2 a year after I started this blog.....I'd be pregnant again.  With this little punkin pie:

My 7th post was about Widespread Panic.  Some things never change.

Except I can't fit in that top anymore.  Damn. 

Working on it!

We've lived in 4 states in the 5 years of my writing.

 What a strange trip it's been.

At first I kept to myself.....for a couple of years.  When  Blake moved to KC from Colorado, I branched out and started networking.  I needed the companionship. I needed to reach other people. And, I'm so glad I did.

I've met countless amazing friends - you all know who you are - and I'm beyond grateful for each and every one of you.  Blogland is a powerful thing.  I'm so glad I jumped in 5 years ago. 

Lots to update you on.  Widespread, Pa's visit, sharks on the Pier, Lainey's feathered hair, my most recent affliction (Vertigo), and more.

What would we do without your fun life and stories? My life would be soooo boring without you.
