A retrospective

It's June 20, 2008 and I have been journaling on this little spot on the web for a little over three years now. It feels all at once like a lifetime and the blink of an eye. And I am proud of myself for sticking with it.
I've bought things, both new
and old. (Mostly old.)
Really cool things
and wonderful steals that made my heart race with excitement.
I've made things. Hard things
and even harder things
and easy things
and things that filled my heart with joy.
I've painted everything that stands still.
And my sweet pea has gone from a chubby little baby
to a growing up boy.

What a journey this has been. I can only imagine what the next three years will bring!

Thank you to each of you for joining me here. Whether you are a new friend or an old friend, I appreciate that you take time to be a part of our story, and that so many of you take the time to share your story with us.
