Bloggy Birthday

This little blog turned 3 on the 3rd!The day passed me by and I didn't even notice!

When i started this blog it was called Elijah's Adventures and was written from his point of view.

His very first post was when he was less than four months old! And this was the first picture posted.

Our family three years ago.
Crystal was the very first commenter!

I didn't really know what i was doing back then. I've really enjoyed learning more about blogging, codes, banners and backgrounds.

But the two best things i've gotten out of this whole blogging experience is a) the connection to family and real life friends and the chance to "visit" with them and keep up with them and b) the NEW friends i've made. And really they are my real life friends now too! That is perhaps the most unexpected thing. I'm always touched when a new "follower" joins who doesn't know us in real life. I'm touched that they find something here worth following and that they would be interested in our family. Thank you!

We've had a busy week so you'll be seeing pictures soon involving donkeys, castles, light houses and friends! Fun fun! See you again soon!

Oh, i wanted to point out a new feature... the search box there on the right side bar, way at the top. I hope that will make it easier for you to look for specific things or topics.

Happy 3rd Birthday! I'm thinking about taking a course to learn a bit more about blog design and codes too. Look forward to seeing the donkey pictures. I have fond memories of childhood visits to the family farm in Ireland and a VERY bad tempered donkey!

Happy Bloggy Birthday!

Ah...I've just been thinking I wanted to look and see if there was a search feature available.
Thanks for the little nudge.
