Blogging Makes You Do Crazy Things

{image via here}

Blogging makes you do crazy things.

Like what, you ask?

Like acknowledge - and celebrate blogaversaries, for one.

But, I'm doing it. I'm celebrating my one year blogaversary. Today.

March 9th is a hard day for me. It marks huge loss in my life. And, for that reason, it seemed like a great day - a-nothing-to-lose-only-things-to-be-gained-kind-of-day to start my blog.

I started Maine-lyhome not knowing where it would go. Not knowing whether I'd have something to say. Not knowing if anyone would read it.

In some ways, I still don't have those answers.

But, what I do know, is that I am loving this space -- and the channel it has given me for my creativity.

And, I'm really loving that so many of you have sent me wonderful thoughts and comments on and offline.

Thank you for your support.
