Three Years

Today is my Blogaversary! To celebrate I went to Vegas! ha ha. Kidding. But really. I just re-read my Blogaversary post from last year and how not excited I was to post about it because it was such a hard year for me. However, this year I have been looking forward to continuing my tradition because I had an awesome year and I can't wait to re-cap on it!

I honestly had no idea that this last year would be so awesome, but it really was. I am hoping this next year will be just as awesome. :o)

By the way... thanks to all my family and friends and even strangers that read my blog and give me love and support. You have no idea how much I love to read all the comments and make new blog friends and I can't tell you how loved it makes me feel to know that so many people care about what is going on in my life.
