HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY....TO ME!!!

TODAY IS MY 1 YEAR BLOGIVERSARY!!!

And yeah....it's kind of a big deal.

I started this blog to promote and/or talk about my photography business. It turned in to waaaayyy more than that. For me, anyway.

July 17, 2008 I wrote my first post. And I am NOT a writer. I'm just not. I don't mind it if it's just for fun and no pressure. Make me read a book and do a book report? Ain't happenin'. I sooo do not miss high school english class.

So when I got the idea to start a blog I really thought I'd stick with it for a few weeks and then it would fall to the end of my priority list. Another project started with good intentions, but died a quick, sudden death.

Ya see....I'm a quitter....with ADD.

Double whammy, if ya ask me. It's a curse but it's my curse. I get bored easily. When things get tough or boring, I'm gone. First one to the door when the heat is on. Running full tilt at the first sign of pressure.

You get my point.

But as I look back over the past year, I see many changes. In me, in the way I view the world, in the way I see YOU. This blog has been the most therapeutic thing I've ever done.

I've changed.

Not because of this blog, but because what God has done to me through this blog.

God has restored my broken soul, strengthened my faith, opened the windows of heaven and blessed me to overflow, held me in very dark times and shown me who He created me to be. I'm a work in progress, but my motto has become this: So long as I have forward progress, even baby steps, I have progress none the less.

To God be the glory.

So with that, I THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for reading. For stopping by once in a while, sometimes commenting and sometimes not. Your comments have often times been the affirmations that I needed to move forward. Your support....both spoken and unspoken....has been like the arms of Jesus holding me close just when I needed it most.

So here's to many more years of progress, many more years of fun and photography. May God continue to mold me and shape me and remind me who I am. HE IS GOOD. ALL THE TIME.

My life verse: "I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me!" ~ Philippians 4:13

Happy Blogiversary! I too am so grateful for this blog. It makes me think about things I take for granted and remember to be grateful and even a little sad. I really wish we lived closer! I am also sad we didn't know each other better in HS. I am so blessed to know you better now. I love you!! I love being able to do my celebrations for you and your achievements and it encourages me to keep pressing forward too! I look forward to many years! I wanna invite to your wedding too!

I've just recently found your blog but have felt very blessed by it. "A quitter .... with ADD" - I can so relate! Perhaps that's why I've gone two weeks without a post and just read others. Happy Blogiversary!

Happy Blogiversary!!!
Isn't it amazing how God can use anything He wants to bring Him glory - even the internet.
I pray that God will continue to grant you success as you take step after step following Him.
