Happy Birthday, Blog!

Dear Readers,

I really can’t believe this, but today is the day I posted my first blog post, exactly one year ago.
I was slightly terrified.  I seem to remember I had a hard time falling asleep that night.  I mean, prior to this, I had never even posted an update on FB.  And here I was about to present something to the world on a daily basis.  haha.  I had no idea how it would be received….would people (even friends and family) like what I was creating?  Could I somehow get out some words that would mean anything to anyone?  In the end, I knew it didn’t matter, because I felt inspired to do this.  And so I carried forward, even though I knew nothing about blogging.  (I can’t tell you how long it took me to get the words “A BLOG ABOUT LOVE” written on the top of the screen. 🙂

The result has been an absolutely incredible year.  The best part has been connecting with all of you.  We’ve loved hearing your stories and your triumphs.  We’ve just loved having this space where we can all inspire each other to see our trials in a different way, to love in a better way, to feel more empowered in our choices, and to ultimately feel more joy in our lives.  This effort really been the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done. 

THANK YOU for inspiring me every single day to come straight to this computer and to work late into the night (you make it worth it :).  THANK YOU for your letters, comments, and visits to our blog.  This blog wouldn’t be here without you. 

Love to all,

Mara & Danny

P.S.  I’ll be at this Levi’s/Macy’s event in Chicago today.  If you happen to be there, I’d love to meet you!

      Hi – thank you! It's from Harvey Faircloth. Though it's no longer available. This was from our first season. I wish I had one in every color.
