I'm looking forward to the future, and feeling grateful for the past

Over 120 posts...whaaatt?!! Almost 11,000 views...no way!!! Nearly one full year of blogging...where did THAT time go?!!
I'm not too sure that my writing style has changed in this time, or that my blog has changed it's focus or direction...it's still a mixing pot of my mind. Looking on the surface you probably wouldn't think that my life has particularly changed either...same home, same job, same partner; but still I've changed. I feel more settled, more sure of what I want in life, what I deserve and what I'm capable of.
Last night as I sat surrounded by half packed boxes, Sion doing his armchair commentary on the football that was being televised, I read through some of my posts. I re-read the first one that got over 100 views, the one with the most comments, the one that made me laugh as I wrote it and the one that made me cry. There were lots that I just really enjoyed writing about, trips out, funny moments and stories that flowed through my fingertips.
I wanted to give them a special place in my blog and I wanted to share them again...
My very first post... here
All those things I STILL wish I was brave enough to say to the faceless Facebook "friends"... here

Of course the biggest enjoyment I get from blogging is reading and interacting with all the wonderful other bloggers out there. I regularly join in with various linkups and I can only imagine how much work goes into them...so Thank You ladies!!
