Happy Birthday To Me - Or My Blog Anyway!

No - it's not my birthday.  I'm not ready to turn 26 quite yet.  It is, however, my little old blog's birthday!  I can't believe that I wrote my first blog post a year ago today.  I can say with 100% honesty that I n.e.v.e.r imagined that blogging would become such a large part of my life.

I have met so many true friends through blogging. (I'm sure as my hubby reads this he is rolling his eyes - yes, I have made real friendships through blogging!)  It honestly amazes me that so many people think what I have to say is worth reading each day. 

I figured that as a tribute to my blogger birthday I would do a little recap of some of my favorite posts throughout the year.  As always, they are true life events that have occurred, and unfortunately most of them are hysterically comical because they are SO embarrassing. 

If you've been a follower from the beginning, these are nothing new to you.  But so many people have joined over the past few months that I thought it might be nice to highlight some of my favorite posts.

So if you have a moment, feel free to see below for some pretty humorous stories and a few incredibly personal glimpses into my inner most thoughts.

Thank-you again for all the comments, encouragement and laughs over the past year!  :)  I hope you enjoy reading my blog as much I enjoy sharing with you!
