One Year Blogiversary!

I’ve been blogging for ONE whole year.  Wow, Happy Flipping Blogiversary to Chasing Elephants.  I can’t believe it’s been a year.  Sometimes I think it feels like I have been doing this thing for longer and sometimes I feel like it was just the other day that I started writing.  In the beginning I struggled so much with all the “rules” of blogging.  You know what I mean, the you don’t’ blog on the weekends because you know you will look pathetic or you must blog everyday M-F.  I was stressing myself out.  I finally learned that this blog is mine and I can do what I want.  If I want to post once a week that’s what I do.  This is fun for me but I also have a life outside of this blog, I share when I have time. 

It’s interesting to look back and see where I was a year ago and to see how much I have grown, not in height though I’m still standing at 5’ 2”.  Last year I wasn’t in the best of places.  I was totally lost and wasn’t adjusting well to life in the new town I was living in.  I was contemplating running away to Thailand, which isn’t the worst idea but it would have meant leaving the love of my life.  I chose to stay and I’m still not sure what would have been the best thing to do but what I do know is that I’m happy right now. 

I’m happy that I have the man I want to spend the rest of my life with by my side.  Though I’m still not crazy about the town we live in, I’ve accepted that I live here and it’s slowly growing on me.  I have two pups that I love to pieces, I made some amazing girlfriends this year, which it’s amazing how better life is with friends to laugh and cry with that aren't miles and miles away and enjoying life checking things off my 101 Things in 1001 Days List.   

This space of mine has helped me in so many ways.  I can’t thank everyone enough for all the support, encouragements and friendships this past year.  It means the world.  I can’t wait to see what the next year brings!

  4. You have surely gotten yourself all dressed and groomed, only to look in the mirror to wonder what is missing. Even though your clothes look put together and you like your hair or makeup, something else is necessary. | | | | | | | | | |
