Who would have thought all those years ago that I would still be here, tapping away at the keyboard, pouring my stories out?! Given my track history of not finishing things, I certainly didn't!
Over the last 9 years, I've written 1554 published posts (and 45 remain in draft for one day) 5281 people have left comments, and so many friendships have been made around the world.
I've used 6 different cameras, had 2 desktop computers, and sometimes blogged from the iPad or laptop. I've had 3 different craft spaces, 2 sewing machines, and been on 3 craft retreats.
I've had 2 babies, driven 4 different cars, and had 1 car crash. Steve has had 4 different jobs, driven thousands of kilometres, and still makes me laugh.
I've learned to code, been on Facebook almost as long as I've been blogging, and embraced Pinterest like it's google.
I've started a business that failed, failed to start several ideas, and decided that keeping to myself is better than losing friendships.
I've defined my creativity, and explored creative practise, and cried more times than I ever thought possible.
I've taken over 80,000 photos, and shared over 2000 of them on instagram.
And I keep coming back, and showing up, and growing every single day.
Happy Birthday, blog.
