Happy Birthday to Us!!


Today is our one year blog birthday! It is hard to believe that we've been blogging together for a year! A little more than a year ago (Groundhog's Day 2008), Mary Lee from A Year of Reading met us at a local Panera, and guided us through the basics of Blogging 101. After that, it was up to Bill and me to come up with ideas to write about and books we loved that we wanted to review. Quite the challenge for novice writers!

So, here we are one year later, and so very grateful for the journey we've had this past year!!

Because it is a Friday (and we just completed 2 nights of parent-teacher conferences and Book Fair), we've decided to just open some presents, and have a little ice cream today on our actual birthday, but we'll be back tomorrow to blow out the candles on our cake. We will be blowing out one candle for each month we've been blogging. We hope you join us for that part of our celebration.

Thanks for visiting us this past year. We hope you continue to visit us in the years to come!
