I am so sad that I missed Way to Go Kevin!'s first birthday. That's right, folks, a year ago on October 7, I brought this tiny, mewling little blog into existence and look how far it's come! We've worked our way through burp cloths and rice cereal and I can now watch proudly as it balances on its pudgy little digital feet and totters around the living room of my heart.
Certainly there have been times when I was afraid that it wasn't developing properly. I'd see other women's blogs at the park and wonder if maybe I was doing something wrong or missing some key that would emotionally stunt my blog for life.
Why hasn't my blog had any embedded videos? I would wonder. And what's all this about changing the template?
But I realize now that everyone's blog develops at a different rate and no blog is better than another.
Anyway, Way to Go Kevin! for having a birthday.
The birthday of my blog has caused me to reflect on my own year and the many changes therein:

On an unrelated note, I'm experimenting with removable wallpaper ideas. Just so you know, spray starch works pretty well on dry fabric and not so well on wet fabric.
