Today is The Spring’s first blogiversary!
Yesterday, in the late afternoon sun, we celebrated at The Spring Cottage with cupcakes and champagne. It was the perfect way to toast the little blog that has become such a big part of my life. Blogging has opened a whole new world to me. I’ve learned technical skills I once believed were beyond my capabilities, discovered the range of my own creativity, and have come into contact with an online community populated by beautiful ideas and generous people who inspire me to try something new every day. These are great gifts, and I have my friends, family, and each of my readers to thank for encouraging me to keep at it. (I want to especially thank my Mr. Spring for taking gazillions of photos on command while I pepper him with instructions for exactly how they should look… The man has the patience a saint!) A year in, I feel like my vision for The Spring is finally coming into being. It’s very satisfying to see something you love growing, developing, and begining to live up to its potential.
So Happy Birthday little blog… I can’t wait to see what this next year will bring!
