This little blog turned a year old – eleven days ago.
As anyone who knows me well will tell you, I’m not a sentimental soul. I’ve got practicality running through my veins. But I love deep. And hard. And quiet.
I’ve had a blast with this little blog over the past year. I’ve loved hanging out in the barnyard, seeing what stories Doink, Brandy, Jessie and all the chicken ladies have to tell. I’ve loved writing and rewriting and walking away and coming back and trying to write again. I feel like they entrust me to tell their stories well. I hope I’ve lived up to their expectations!
I’ve met (albeit virtually) so many wonderful people – people who write about chickens, about goats, about families, about farms. People I like. People like me. I am so grateful to have your beautiful photographs, your eloquent stories, your wonderful animals in MY life. The best thing about writing about me, is meeting and knowing YOU.
Thank you Aretha, Maude, Cindy Lou, Cleopatra, Sarah, Scarlett, Hermione, Thelma, Louise, Sofia, Rapunzel, Jasmine, Belle, Lucy, Ethel, Brandy, Jessie, the Doinkster and my best friend Keela. You’re the best animal friends a girl could have.
And thank you to the Internet. Because otherwise I’d just be writing on all this on sheets of paper I would fold in half and put in a drawer. That would be weird, and somewhat creepy.
So here’s to the next 354 days. One year minus eleven days. I’ll try to remember the second anniversary. On the day. Really, I’ll try.
