Celebratory SWF


'Celebratory Chicago Fireworks'

(taken from the Hancock Tower in 2009)

A double celebration here today.

Three years ago today I started my blog and I still find it just as rewarding as when I started it. It's a great creative outlet and I've made many friends all around the world, even getting to meet a few of them. It's become one of my favourite things to do and something I am proud to claim as all mine.

Ten years ago today, the Hubster and I sat down at the same Backgammon table online and played a game. We made a connection, that became a firendship, turned into love and years later became a new and very happy life together.

2001 was a year we will never forget, for both great personal happiness and worldwide horror and sadness.

Do you have a memorable year, and if so why?

Daryl said...

this year started off with such bad stuff I am sure that it will go down as the most memorable .. and not in a good way ... but we've got 10 months to turn it around and we're going to make sure it does!

Congrats on your blogversary!

Congratulations on both of your anniversaries, I think you were meant to be !
I've so enjoyed our visits back and forth throughout, this will make my second year blogging, and you, my dear friend, were the first to ever leave a comment...I was estatic, it was from reading your blog, that I was encouraged to jump in.
Hope hubster got his freezer sorted out, and the both of you continue in heavenly bliss for many more years.
Aesome fireworks !
Hugs,

Lovely celebratory sky, Sarah, and happy anniversaries!

Pat said...

Congrats on your 3-year blogaversary, Sarah! I started my blog 3 years ago, too. It was either March or April. It is a lot of fun. Congrats also on your happy marriage to your hubster. I love reading about happy marriages!

A memorable year for me was the 1968-69 school year when, at age 20, I left home in southern Californa (where I'd lived all of my life at that point in time) to spend 9 months in a suburb of Dublin, Ireland, living with a young family and attending Trinity College, Dublin. That year had more firsts in it for me than any other year of my life and I had so much fun and made so many memories!

Pat said...

Wow, I just noticed Hubster's comment about tomorrow being the 63rd anniversary of the Locker. Tomorrow is my 63rd birthday! (born, obviously on Feb. 11, 1948)

Brit Gal Sarah said...

That's a neat coincidence Pat! Happy Birthday for tomorrow.

Gaelyn said...

I celebrate every year for what it brings me. Especially with a great fireworks display.

Kristin said...

Hi!

Wow! That's beautiful. It's certainly was a memorable year for you. Happy 3rd year of blogging and 10th anniversary. Wish you more happiness to come and a fabulous year ahead.

Brown English Muffin said...

Maybe if I read a few more blogs it will rub off on me!!! LOL

Congrats!!

Dhemz said...

You have a great blog, Happy blog anniversary! Sounds like and your hubby are very happy! Love the fireworks shot, great capture,

Kay said...

Happy 3rd Blogaversary, Sarah. My day is coming up in a couple of weeks. It will be three years for me, too. Isn't it amazing that we've done it this long? The best thing about bloggin has been meeting wonderful people like you and learning so much about other parts of our country and the world.

Aside from the important years of our wedding and births of our children, I think a stand out year for me would be the difficult year I started teaching again after being home for 10 years. It was such a year of adjustment, challenges and happiness that I'd begun a new, wonderful, rewarding chapter in my life.

Kay said...

Ummm... and by the way...
I'm really getting into my Kindle now after a bit of trepidation. Thanks so much for nudging me along.

Beautiful photo and great memories - thanks for sharing!

Kris said...

Congratulations Sarah! I've really enjoyed following your blog for these past few years and look forward to many more! One of my special dates is 12 December 2007 - the day I first stepped foot on UK soil! xx
