Dear bloggity blahg blawg,

It’s our first blogiversary today. The first anniversary is usually paper, right? That doesn’t seem appropriate . . . maybe a new button for your sidebar or something?

Though we had been flirting for several months, it was this week last year that I committed to you thanks to the constant badgering gentle encouragement of Daddypotamus. I think he was hoping to deflect my GMO rants away from himself, but whatever the reason I’m so glad he hooked us up.

In the past year we have tackled breastfeeding myths, celebrated the birth stories of moms and babes around the world, posted controversial blogs and then regrets, learned to make nourishing meals in teeny-tiny blocks of time, made not-quite Augustinian confessions, outed me for being terrified of having children, pushed a baby out, changed my discipline style, and accidentally claimed my daughter was 1095 years old (the title has since been changed from sun to moon). All from the comfort of home. Through all of this you have taught me there is a cozy place in the world for just about anyone . . . even a quirky research toad like me.

Thanks to you, little blog, I have met the most amazing, passionate people. Moms (and non-moms – hi Megan!) who love breastfeeding, real food, gentle birth . . . and of course their kids (or future kids ;-)) I have connected in ways I didn’t even know were possible . . . email “pen pals”, interstate playdates, local readers turned real-life friends and everything in between.

Thank you for challenging me to become a better communicator, but most of all thanks again for introducing me to such an incredible community. They have literally changed my life. Yes, them. They are epic.

I could say so much more, but there is a certain little boy that is going to need my full, focused attention for the next 24 hours or so.

So that’s it.

Happy Blogiversary! MUAH!!!

    Happy Blogiversary! Thanks so much for doing what you do. I appreciate you blogging even though you have two small children. Thanks for being healthy, crunchy granola in a not so healthy hamburger world! (that sounded weird-but I meant it as a compliment)
    Praying for fast recovery and awesome nursing for you and your little guy!

      Thanks for reading, Margo. I don’t think it’s possible for me to be anything other than crunchy granola, but it’s much more fun to be a weirdo now that i have bloggy friends to share it with.

    I’m with Megan! I read your blog and think, “I’m going to have to remember this when I’m a mom!” Fortunately all I have to do is remember to come back and read, it’s all here and waiting for me. Bliss! Happy blogiversary! :)

  8. Megan says:

    Heather, you just made my day! Thanks for the shout-out, and thanks for creating this fantastic blog. You’re an inspiration!

      Thanks for coming around, Megan. Sometimes when I write I feel like I am sitting at a kitchen table talking with some of you . . . your face pops up a lot :)
