That's a lot of posting. That's a lot of Stacy posting. I've contributed here and there, but this blog, largely a journal of our family's life, is all due to Stacy. I wanted to say a huge thank you to her for always making sure there's some record of all the things we are feeling and doing. So much of what she does goes unnoticed, unrecognized, and unrewarded. She is so many things to me, to our family, and to our friends, and I don't want her to spend any time feeling unappreciated.
She started blogging almost 10 years ago, and a lot has happened in that time. Let me share just a little of that:
*Two new houses, and two moves
*A new business
*Loss of several loved ones
*Many "roads less traveled" taken
*Thousands of miles logged on trips across the country, to Florida, New England, and other stops
*Several big cities visited (New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Atlanta, St. Louis, Chicago, Denver, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, and more)
*Hundreds of piano and violin lessons
*3 black belts in the family
*The evolution of several friendships
*A constant exposure to new people and experiences
*Binge-watching so many great TV shows
*So many Harry Potter stories and events
*Embracing life as it comes
*Countless house guests
*Games, games, and more games
*Home projects (oh, the projects!)
*A new car (yes, only one in 10 years)
*Blizzards and snowball fights
*Food. So. Much. Food.
*Frustrations and venting
*Celebrations and cheering
*Lots of pictures
*Brutal honesty and vulnerability
*Kilts and steampunk outfits
*Love, love, and more love.
Thank you, Stacy, for all you've documented and shared! You are incredible!
