Through the looking-glass

Just a short pause to pat myself on the back for three years of mostly consistent blogging... it's been quite a ride!

I love this little place we've made together: me alternately skipping or stumbling with the things that make up an ordinary life; you there beside me or imagined quietly looking over my shoulder, commenting on this or that or something I might have missed.

Having someone to write for, to share stories and memories with, has made this worth doing every day. Life, mine and yours, is much more interesting when shared and reflected on in this way, don't you think?

So... a heartfelt thanks for three years of friendship and for meeting me here most days to laugh or rant or even cry at the wonder of ordinary things.

Three years--that's several books if you put your posts end to end. Of course, if you did that, the pages would blow away. Here they stay fixed and we can peek in.
I love your poetic thoughts and your equally poetic photos.
And I love your taking us around some of your favorite NJ sites.

You were the first non-family member to comment on my blog and you will always be special. Through links from your blog I have met many interesting people. And your blog continues to be one of the best that I read.

I always like your photos!

And the reminders of what a great place NJ is, despite the usual images we are fed!

Has it really been three years? Seems longer. And shorter. Hm.

Happy Blogiversary!

Happy Anniversary! Thanks for introducing me to the good parts of New Jersey and reminding us that your state is in fact The Garden State.

Although I haven't read you for the whole 3 years, its been a pleasure for the year or so that I have.

Mary said...

Laura, I've know you for two of those three years and it's been an honor for me. I come to you every day for the best written stories and thoughts. You were the first blogger to add me to your roll...

So, keep on wowing us, friend.

Hugs,
Mary

You make a good point: blogging is part about the community it connects us too ... but also about the new frame of mind it puts us in: the ordinary because notable, and ephemeral thought streams become food for fodder. Your blog is a resounding success on all fronts! Congratulations.

Three years?
It's always a pleasure to read your thoughts--your photography is first rate, too!
I hope you never tire of having us along, just over your shoulder.

I have only known you less than a year, but have come to look forward to finding what you have to tell me about this place where I now live. I love reading your blog and enjoying the photos. I do hope to run into you on one of your visits to Cape May

Wow, congratulations! I've got a few months to go before I hit three years of "mostly consistent" blogging. Kinda exhausting when you think about it, no?
