Today

My idea tonight, to mark the passing of two years of blogging, was to select a favorite post from each of the past twelve months. Reading through the archives this evening I found I couldn't possibly do that, as some months were so full of wonderful things and others full of sadness of some sort or another, and other months were filled with posts but empty of any real thoughtfulness... and how do I choose among them for a favorite?

Being easier on myself, and not so much in the mood for making all those links, I thought instead I'd post just twelve favorite photos from the past year, but I can't even seem to do that. Most of the photos I share here are so essentially tied to the mood of the posts that I can't really separate them.

I can say that my enjoyment in blogging hasn't diminished, although my enthusiasm has waned from time to time. I'm still glad you come around for a visit now and again and hope you'll continue to share your friendship here with me. I do wonder what we'll dream up to ramble on about in this next year.

Happy 2nd year of blogging.
You set high standards for yourself, and charm us all in the process.
I just hope your interest is sufficiently sustained to keep bringing us bunnies fixes and Luka updates!

Happy Blog Birthday!

I'm pretty new here but have found some interesting things throughout. It's a good idea to look back - what a journal!

I always enjoy your adventures and the the joy that natural and simple things bring you. Because I receive joy from you, by seeing things anew through your eyes.

Happy, happy blogiversary Laura! I know exactly what you mean. The rapture has now worn off and now my blog and I have settled into a routine relationship, and sometimes I long for the early days of the romantic love of the posts I used to create. Now, we are comfortable in our sweats and occasionally we don't get along at all, but we're still worth fighting for I suppose as the words still come, albeit in a different way. :c)

Happy Blog-iversary! Love the framing on the flowers in vase... a little unusual... and that's why I like it!

Whatever you blog about, I'll read it, Laura. I'm glad you're still pleased with blogging, because I'd really miss it if you didn't!

here's to two years of your presence on the internet! I find it is a wonderful way to look back...much better than the old diary method.

Two years of blogging? Happy Blog-Birthday Laura. I look forward to many more posts from you.

Laura, lately, I'm late visiting. You are always on the top of my list - every day. You have inspired me from the beginning of my own blog - a year ago, wow. I have learned a lot from you and when I am frazzled (often), your posts calm me down. And I thank you for that.

Our enthusiasm for blogging lacks at times - I think we all experience it.

Please continue to grace us with your incredible writing talent, photos and messages? And I need to mention mid-week Bunny Fixes and Luka Pupdates :o) Love them!

Congratulations on two years!

Hugs,
Mary

Happy #2. I look forward to more.

Have no fear, LH, life has a way of dispensing more irony, angst, and beauty than any one writer can concieve. Particularly with an eye cast towards the policial realm, material shan't be a problem...
Congrats.

Congratulations on two years, laura. You have a wonderful niche here with your particularly beautiful photography and your poignant perspectives.

Cathy said...

Laura, congratulations. Your musings and candor have touched us all. Your writing on things profound and light - make our human hearts feel less alone as we travel with you. Thanks.

burning silo said...

Congratulations, Laura. I may not always leave a comment, but do enjoy returning time and again to read your thoughtful words and view your wonderful photographs.

Jean said...

Congratulations. Your writings are always great.

Larry said...

Happy Blog-iversary! I'll bet you put an awful lot of time and effort in to your writing over the past two years.
