I did it! 5 fulfilling years

5 years

My first blog post went live on 1-21-2010.

Yesterday was my

5 year blog-iversary.


If you’re still reading, I’d love to hear from you.

While I’m mostly writing for myself–meaning that 98% of the time I don’t mind if anyone but me reads this, because I’ve gotten some serious self-growth, artistic expression, creative exploration, “developing my voice” benefits from doing it–

it’s nice to know every once in a while that something strikes a chord with another soul.

If it does!

Thanks from the bottom of my heart for joining me on this journey, whether frequently or occasionally.

I’m so grateful I said


to myself and to this blog.

with love

      Thanks Liz! It feels (just a little) like running a marathon. Exercises different muscles though. You’re so inspiring too! ( :

    Congratulations! Thank you for everything that you do to share your voice in the world and encouraging others to do so…getting a little teary. 🙂

    I’ve been following for quite a while. You don’t hear from me much because I use the “like” button far more than I comment, but I enjoy reading your posts. Congrats on 5 years!

    What a fun anniversary to celebrate. And while I’ve only recently “found” you, it’s certainly been a delight. Here’s to lots more insights and shares and discoveries!
