Next month marks ten years of blogging for me.
Ten years of sharing photos, telling stories, and building friendships on this funny little thing, called the internet.
I know this blog has been a little quiet and disappointing lately.
There's a multitude of reasons (a new direction with my career, struggles with angsty teenagers, helping coach a middle school Cross Country team, a loss of words, etc.). And while I certainly can't predict the future of this blog (especially since blogs seem to be going the way of the dinosaur), I want to think that I've got more photos to share, more stories to tell, and more friendships to be made here on this funny little thing called the internet.
I can't imagine I'll be blogging long enough to celebrate a 20 Year Blog Anniversary, but then again, I never thought I'd be blogging long enough to celebrate a 10 Year Blog Anniversary either, yet here I am.
And I can't imagine that any of you will stick around for another 10 years, but then again, I never thought some of you would stick it out with me this long, yet here you are.
So I don't know what the next ten years has in store for me or this blog, but I know the last ten have been an unexpected gift, full of ups and downs, trials and celebrations, laughter and tears, mistakes and opportunities, heartaches and happiness, failures and growth, and I feel indebted to many of you for the insight, the encouragement, the truth, and the understanding you all have extended to me through all of it.
Thank you for that.
And here's to the possibility of another ten years together.
