I know what you’re thinking. Wait, didn’t you just have a birthday? Man, you are really milking 26 for all its worth. And while that may be true, I’m not talking about myself. I’m talking about this little blog. She’s 3 today, and I couldn’t be prouder.
The last three years have been nuts. The last year has been nuts. The irony of it all is that while I really wanted to sit down and reminisce about the last year in blogging, I don’t have time tonight. I’m exhausted and have reached my breaking point of working sodamnmuch. (Luckily, that’s all changing soon, and I swear I will write an update on all of that next week.) I got really sad when I thought about a blogiversary coming and going without proper recognition and humor and wit, and most of all the rehashing of the last year, but then I thought, Isn’t that what I do every time I sit down to write? I record what is happening and reflect on who I am and what I’m doing. So I don’t need to rehash it; it’s all here, in the archives. And while a “Year in Review” post would be lovely, so is sleeping. I’m creating this post as a placeholder, and I’ll celebrate later, when I have time and am more rested, which will be next week!
I have a really amazing giveaway planned in honor of my blogiversary, but that’s not getting done tonight either. I promise I am not giving up, it’s just that everything has hit me all at once. I don’t go to bed before 1am anymore (if then, and I still have to be up at 6:30 every morning), and my weekends are spent working and playing catch-up. I’ve finally reached my limit, which means I guess I’m not really Wonder Woman after all (ha), but as I said before, the end is nigh.
I should be sleeping, but I didn’t want today to go by without some acknowledgement of the last 3 amazing years. I love this little space and I love all of you who faithfully visit me here, even when all I have to say is that I’m too tired to say anything.
Happy birthday, LfT. We’ll celebrate with champagne and cupcakes next week. I’m proud of myself for carrying on for three years and I’m proud of all of you for sticking with me through all the bumps in the road. Here’s to at least 3 more blogiversaries. <3
