Happy Blogiversary

Can you believe it's been 3 years since I started this blog? December 29th, 2004 was my 25th wedding anniversary, and I celebrated by starting a blog. Can you say, "Writing on the wall." Yes, I have gone back and reread a few entries from the beginning, but it is a weird "out of body" experience where I cannot believe what has transpired over the last 3 years.

First and most startling, I am NOT celebrating my 28th wedding anniversary. My divorce was final in August. Did I see this coming? Not sure I thought 3 years ago that I had what it takes to leave this marriage. But I did. I moved to another city, got a new job, and lived alone, really alone, for the past 15 months.

Second, I went to Montana with a blog friend and visited the home of a blog friend in Montana and met another Montana blog friend. You know who you are. I would have never dreamed that could happen. I have forged friendships with people I didn't know 3 years ago as a result of this blog. I IM them and e-mail with them and learned from them, laugh with them, blush with them. (You know who you are.) I would love to meet some of you all this year.

And finally, I will be spending this New Year's Eve with the love of my life. I spent far too many Dec 29th's alone, lonely. Too many New Year's Eve not celebrating. And now I am head over heels in love and spending it with this wonderful man. How did I get so lucky? 2008 is going to be a wonderful year, and I am so excited to get it started. A toast to love. Join me in the happy dance.

Merry Christmas. Happy New Year. Thanks for coming along for the ride. It's been great meeting you and getting to know you.
