New Year's Wishes
The other day when we were out and about, taking hikes and then sipping Starbucks in the car, Hubs stopped by a house so I could take this picture. I've always loved these trikes sitting out along someone's driveway.
They make me think of friends and community, for some reason. Both of which I've been blessed with in 2009.
Back when I began blogging, I was shy. I watched the blogging community from the sidelines, never thinking that I'd really fit in or that I was good enough to belong. As time passed, the more people I met and the more I wrote, the more confidence I found.
2009 has been the year that I finally stepped away from the sidelines and jumped in with both feet, into Twitter and the blogging community with wild abandon. I began to tell people in real life that I blog and even began seeking out some freelance writing opportunities because by then, I completely fell in love with writing.
My Twitter addiction completely took hold, I wrote more for Everythingmom.com, and found myself surrounded by amazing, smart, beautiful women who form a community that knows no bounds. Blogging truly is friendship without borders, isn't it? We chat with people from Australia to Europe, all over the USA and Canada, just like they are next door. We support each other through the hard times, and cheer each other on.
I want all of you to know how much I have appreciated you taking the time out of your day to drop by and visit me here as I've shared pieces of my life, and me, with you. The comments, support, and love has been amazing. I'm honored that out of all those blogs out there, you visit mine. I don't know what 2010 will bring here, but I'm excited at the possibilities, and and all those empty days that I get to fill with writing. Oh, the writing. If anything, 2009 has re-kindled a fiery passion for writing that I didn't really know existed in me and I'm excited to see where it will take us!
There's only one wish that I have for Notes from the Cookie Jar in 2010. One.
I wish that this year, dear readers, I'll finally get to meet some of you in person.
Wishing you all a happy, healthy, amazing 2010!
