We're celebrating!

It's my blog's one year anniversary. Isn't that fun? In the last year, more than 24,000 visitors have stopped by. Of 536 posts, your favorite was The BEST Tomato Soup recipe. The most referrals come from my friend Ed's blog: It Happened In The Fall Of 1956 and my cousin Jennifer's blog: Texas Wife and Mom. The most visitors from google searches are people looking for info on Jason Castro (??) the American Idol contestant with the dreadlocks.

In the last 12 months we've read books, reviewed movies, travelled, learned how to knit, cooked a little, eaten a lot, practiced some Italian, survived the election, watched reality TV, partied, prayed, and mourned the loss of some precious folks. I've made new friends, developed closer friendships with old friends, stayed in touch with friends who've moved away, laughed with (and at) my family that's flung from sea to shining sea.

Thanks for making this so fun and thanks for reading!

Leave me a comment before Friday at 6:00pm and you're eligible for a special anniversary gift!

Your blog was sent to me through Google Alerts because I've tagged the name Jason Castro. :) If you're curious as to who he is, just go to his Official site and drop into the Cafe to chat. Or visit his MySpace at

I don't need a gift - I just want to tell you that I'm glad you blog so regularly - even your little short notes can give me a smile or be thought provoking. Thank you for sharing your wit and little pieces of your life with all of us blogger reader folks. Happy 1st Anniversary and keep it up. Ann

Thanks for getting me hooked on blogging... even if my blog DID turn out to be R-rated! It's so much fun! You need to share you secrets for getting so many people to stop by. I did the Digg thing for a while, but I got tired of taking that extra step. Maybe there's a shortcut I don't know about.
