One Year Blog-o-versary!

I absolutely cannot believe that one year ago today, I wrote this post.  In some ways it feels like yesterday, and in others it feels like many years ago.  

I never imagined when I started this blog all the things it would do for me.  Motivate me.  Inspire me.  Get me out of bed in the morning.  Keep me up at night.  Provide a great route of communication with my friends and family.  Be a way to make new friends.  

It is such a part of my life now I can't remember what life was like without it.  (I think I still had an internal monologue, I just didn't have anyone to share it with.)

A lot has happened in this single tiny year.  I thought I would commemorate it to the lyrics of one of my favorite musical songs - Rent's Seasons of Love.  

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes,

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred moments so dear,

 Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes,

How do you measure, measure a year?

In daylights

 

In sunsets 

In midnights

In cups of coffee

In Inches

 

In miles

 

In laughter

In strife.

 

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes,

 

How do you measure a year in the life?

How about love?

How about love?

 

How about love?

 

Measure in love.

 

Seasons of love.

 

Seasons of love.  

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes

 Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred journeys to plan

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes

 How do you measure the life of a woman or a man?

 In truths that she learned

Or in times that he cried

In bridges he burned

  Or the way that she lived (sorry, couldn't write the real lyrics there)

It's time now to sing out

Tho' the story never ends

Let's celebrate

Remember a year in the life of friends

  Remember the love

 Remember the love

-------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you to all of you lovely souls who read here and have stuck with me through the MANY changes that have been made over the past year.  Here's to another year of great memories!  I can't wait to see how different it was from this one!
