Has it really been just a year?

Hey there:)
I was looking back and reading some old posts of mine last night before I went to sleep.
I noticed something...Exactly a year ago today, my newest baby was born. 
 "Cover to Cover...and Everything in Between" came to life.  
I made a cozy little space for her in a place called blogland and oh how she's grown in her first year.  Just like my children i.r.l., "Cover to Cover" has given me something that only a child can give...
heartache
wonderful firsts
eye-opening lessons
inspiration
worry
hope
laughter
love
...and everything in between!

My darling blog has given me a place to write every thought and emotion.  I share myself here.  I am much more Me in this space than anywhere else, I think...and for that:

Not only have I given birth to a place where I can write anytime I want...I have found a community that welcomes me.
I have found friends here.  
I have found support here.  
I have found that I am not alone and I'm not the only one that goes through Situation A, B, or C.

Most of all, I am thankful.
So, you...yeah, you on the other side of the screen:
Thank you for sharing Mondays with me when I'm introducing you to new blogger-ettes.
Thank you for reading my thoughts on Thursdays.
Thank you for having coffee with me on Fridays.
Thank you for just being here on the in between days.

Happy First Year, Little Bloggy!
You've come a long way, baby.  
{Momma's proud of you ...and of herself a little, too.}

Well Happy Blogirthday ( I just made that up). Wow only a year? Isn't it amazing how much happens in a blog year? I can't imagine what I'd feel like or what else I wouldn't be doing if I wasn't blogging and didn't know the people I have met in your year either. I think of you as someone who lit a fire under my blog ;-) Say it with me, "Awwwww". Have a good day!
