I didn’t intend to write today, but was surprised to find out just a moment ago that I have been blogging here on WordPress for four years.
Until I moved from Southern California, a distance of about 2,700 miles from home, I had never felt the need to blog. However, when you are this far from family and friends, well, there is suddenly a lot to share. And what better way, than to blog with pictures for punctuation and emphasis!
I think of my blog as an open diary… and sometimes, when I go back and reread old posts, I am amazed by how much I have learned and grown here on the Farmlet. I have gained new friends here as well. You’ve arrived on my little bit of blog from all over the world, and you have all had a part in helping me to survive the occasional loneliness, distance, and the learning curve of country life.
Here’s to continued learning, growth, and sharing with old friends and new!
