Happy One Year To My Blog!

That's right, it's been one year since I started this blog. Can you believe it? I kind of didn't think I'd make it this far. When I started this whole adventure, I was in a pretty bad place in my real life. If it hasn't been obvious, fall and winter are generally my lowest seasons, the month of November especially. What may have seemed like a roller coaster of emotions to some was just me, trying hard not to let it show. Unfortunately I've never been able to write without my feelings plastered right on the page, so thank you all for sticking through the mess.

And thank you to those of you who have stuck by me pretty much from the very beginning! What started off as just something to do, something to distract myself, has truly been one of the best things I could have ever done.

I could do as some are doing and telling you all my favorite posts of the past year, but this is my 788th post (846th, actually, because believe it or not, I've written a lot of posts that never actually made it for one reason or another) and going through all of them would be useless as I have laughed at so many of them.

But, I do love pictures, so I'll show you some of my favorites that kind of highlight the past year. :)

The first picture to ever appear on the blog.

Everyone have a marvelous New Year's Eve, and PLEASE be safe if you go out!! I expect all of you to join me in 2009 for more blogging, more fun, and more ... everything! <3

Wow! I remember those pics when they were first on your blog. I guess I have been reading for a very long time. I remember the first time I met you at Liquid Rage. You blogged about a tribute night to Pink Floyd and I thought "What the hell! I will go check it out!"

Here is to 2008 and wishing the best in 2009!
