Six Years...and a Day.

I missed it again. I seem to miss it every year. Yesterday my blog turned six years old. I have a hard time wrapping my head around that. Six years is a long time to keep something up. I'll admit, my blog and I have had our ups and downs. In fact, the past month or so, we've barely communicated. But I always know that my blog is there when I need it. Something to pour out my frustrations and my triumphs. Something to share a fun story with.

And in return, it gets to you. I've accomplished so much and met so many people since I started blogging. I've done things I never would have done, if it weren't for that day that I sat down and created the blog that essentially changed my life.

Diabetes isn't the best part of my life. But it also isn't the worst. And diabetes brought me to blogging, which brought me to some of the best friends I have. All of which I wouldn't know otherwise.

I love that I've made so many friends, been so many places, shared so many stories, and had so many experiences because I started blogging.

And be assured, just because I've not been writing much doesn't mean I'm abandoning my blog. Just taking some time to focus on other things in my life.

Tonight I think I'll have some ice cream to celebrate six years and one day of blogging.

Happy blogaversary to me!

Happy happy blogiversary!!! I'm so thankful for your blog, otherwise I wouldn't know you. And that would be just awful - going through life without my "twin". ;)

I love that you put that picture in your post. That was such a great day. Dylan's and Crumbs - Pete refers to it as the "DON'T TELL US WHAT WE CAN'T EAT meet-up". LOL
