It's my party and I'll smile if I want too !
I can't believe that musingofmeggie is a year old!
More astounding to me is that I'm still here blogging one year later.
Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that I would enjoy blogging like I do. When my first post appeared on June 23, 2008, I was still so intimidated by the whole process. The very idea of putting my personal thoughts out there for "strangers" to read, was not something that I was comfortable with.
My friend Kay of musings was the person that first introduced me to blogging. She had just started blogging a few months earlier and her enthusiasm did not escape me! I was intrigued by the thought of starting a blog, but I still wasn't convinced that it was right for me. It took me a couple of weeks before I asked Kay to show me how to start. There was so much to remember in the beginning, but step by tiny step musingsofmeggie was born. Like most new mothers, it took me sometime to be comfortable with my newborn and after many hours of late nights, no sleep and cursing my computer, my first post was hatched.
You, "my posse" have seen me through some tough days with encouraging comments, breathtaking pictures of nature, funny cartoons and beautiful poetic words.
As I sit at my computer, one year later, I am so thankful that I have all of your posts and comments to look forward to reading when I get back from my trip to Ohio. I couldn't think of a better homecoming!
You see, you're part of my life now... one of the good parts and I can't imagine what my day would be like without checking my blog and reading your posts.
I will be back here again in another year to celebrate my second birthday and then my third and so on. Please stick with me, I am a work in progress, and hopefully I will only get better with age.
My son Kevin's birthday was on Father's Day this year, and I remembered to take the picture of the "cakes" before Kevin's got to them... today all of the cupcakes in the above picture are just a sweet memory!
