It's my TWO YEAR BLOGIVERSARY and today I'm celebrating the fact that I have not only been able to share bits & pieces of my life with each of you, but that I've also preserved memories and stories through that sharing. Each time I publish a post, I'm recording a little bit of what's happening in my life - whether it's showcasing my latest scrapbook layout or reviewing the books I've read or revealing new photos I've taken or discussing my latest organizing project or just simply chronicling the events of our latest adventure.
There really wasn't any particular reason that I picked this date to publish my first blog post, it was just a random day when I decided to give it a try. So, in celebration of my blogiversary today I am sharing two very random stories (with photos) that have been on my to-blog list.
Message in a Bottle - On our anniversary cruise this past December, Robbie decided it would be fun to throw out a message in a bottle just to see if anyone would find it and send us a note. I worried a little bit that throwing the corked bottle in the water might be considered polluting or might somehow be endangering some species of fish I'd never heard of, however the adventure and possibility of receiving a response from some obscure corner of the world won out.
our recent outing to Canton Trade Days, I noticed tons of old photos for sale. These vintage photos were arranged in boxes by category, but contained no names, no dates, no locations, no stories, no recorded memories.
I'm so glad that I have a fun hobby that allows me to preserve the stories and memories that go along with my photos. In fact, I'll be sharing a few new layouts and stories in the next day or two!
Thanks for joining me today as I celebrate my 2nd Blogiversary. If you have a random story idea on your to-blog list, please tell me what it is and then get on over to your own blog and publish it - I'll be around to see what you're up to! :>)
