I'm as happy as these celebrating folks. My actual fifth blogaversary is Saturday, but I just couldn't wait to begin to celebrate. Fifth blogaversary...I didn't think I would blog for five weeks, let alone for five years. I had no idea where the journey would take me. I couldn't have begun to imagine on a cold January day in 2009 that I would still be blogging and loving the writing, the friends and the experiences I've had because of blogging.
It wouldn't be a blogaversary celebration without party favors and there are two giveaways to celebrate. One is a surprise book -- I'll pick a title -- and one is Living Well One Line a Day, which is a five year journal. Please leave a comment, perhaps how you began your blog, and be a friend on Google Connect, Bloglovin or Google+. Please enter by Monday, January 20 and I'll announce the winners on Tuesday, January 22.
And for the blogaversary icing on the cake -- a little blogaversary humor -- I had my first piece published yesterday on manilla, a terrific website, and I'm one happy writer. Here's the link to 5-tips-for-planning-life-beyond-the-office. Thanks all for the encouragement along the way. So appreciated!
The Polar Vortex has left us and now it's just winter. I'm back to wool gloves instead of my ski gloves and I'm happy to leave my down coat, which could do double duty as a sleeping bag, at home. It's a balmy 29 degrees and I'm off to enjoy a sunny day in New York City.
Hugs, love and good wishes and thanks for five amazing and incredible years. Here's to many more!
