Two Years Later and You Guys

photo from here

Two years ago today I hit publish on this blog for the first time. It was terrifying. I have posted everyday since. Sometimes it's still a little scary but mostly it's fantastic. You guys, make it so.

I started Smacksy as a writing exercise. What I didn't know back then was that this blog world I was jumping into would offer so much more than a place to stack the words. I have made friends here. Through connecting on this site, I've had the privilege of meeting a number of you in person and there are so many others that I hope to some day. Also, I have some memory issues. I have memory holes you could drive a gypsy wagon through (horses and everything). The practice of noticing and writing down the happy bits from my life with my family makes all this stuff real for me. It's a place I can return to and see what happened and meet up with you guys. I like you guys.

Thanks for hanging out here.
Let's keep going.

  9. Your blog is two? Already? I can't recall how I found you, but I am glad I did.

    Thank you for telling us about Bob, Lisa. I know from personal experience that there is nothing sweeter than a brown eyed, dark haired little boy. We should so start a club.

  27. Wow, 2 years. Impressive.

    It's a bright spot for a lot of us.

    PS. I too have those gaping holes in memory. And now that you likened it to voids a wagon could pass thru, I'm wondering if it's from playing too much Oregon Trail as a kid.

  33. Happy Anniversary. Two years of daily wonderful posts. Two years of Bob, yet not nearly enough. Thank the marvelous you and the magnificent little jedi for all the laughs and tears. (Which rhymes with peers, not pears.) Love you, Bob and smacksy to bits.
