            One year ago today, in an effort to procrastinate and avoid doing homework, I started this little blog.  Because I was unsure of whether anyone would even enjoy my ramblings or if my writing was any good, I blogged in secret (with the exception of a few loyal readers...aka my parents).  But as I got a little braver, I decided to come clean and slowly share the blog with you all.  And I am so glad I did.  You all have given me such encouragement and you have no idea how much I appreciate all of my loyal readers.  So much so that I get seriously giddy every time an email pops into my inbox saying that one of y'all has posted a comment.  Like perma-smile on my face kind of giddy.  So thank you to everyone who has stopped by, shared a sweet word, and maybe even passed on this little URL to a friend.  You rock my world.
            So in the spirit of the new (blog) year, I thought I would share a few oldies but goodies with you (well, at least I think they are goodies).  Here are a few of my favorite posts from the past 12 months!
