at this exact time, one year ago.

I started this little blog, with this little post.

We had moved to Cape Town, and left behind all our family and friends. The idea was to keep them all informed of what was going on in our lives. Of course it didn’t turn out like that. In fact it turned out way better. I ‘met’ all of you guys.

I never in my wildest dreams thought I would love the blogging world so much, I can spend hours looking for new blogs, peeping into other peoples worlds {yes, I am a bit of a stalker}.
And it amazes me every day how close you become to these people that you have never met. And no matter where we are in the world, we are pretty much all dealing with the same things.

To celebrate the occasion, I was planning on doing a blog makeover…those photos at the top need some seriously updating, but that needs to wait for now. I also need to pay some more attention to posting, there just seems to be no time these days. I promise to do better.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for popping in every now and again….and hey if you are popping in and I don’t know, go on and leave a comment…yes…really….just do it.
