Happy Blogiversary to For The Love Of Fiber! Back in 2006, I remember first hearing about a blog. I was knitting at Barnes & Noble in Richmond, VA with the TNK group. A couple of them had blogs. I'd never heard of the word. As I listened, I thought I might give blog writing a go.
Eight years later and I'm still writing.
When I think of the eight years that have passed and all the water that has flowed over the dam, it's quite amazing. The blog has recorded a lot of the happenings and I love looking back at the pictures and the posts. When I looked back in the archives for posts dated around this time in 2013, I reread this page from 2013. LOVE the June 2nd and 16th posts! I just got to celebrate Father's Day in person with Daddy this past weekend and Landen turned three this month! So, time marches on.
Here is a picture of Daddy and me taken Sunday evening. I'm so fortunate to still have my father when many of my friends' have lost theirs. I LOVE having him close by, too! Made me realize how very much I missed both of my parents.
My two boys celebrated their special day as fathers, too. Brian with Miss B. They'll be adding another precious baby girl to their family in August. Taylor with Landen and Raleigh.
Landen turned three this month and is just so cute! He's a character - such a cute personality and all boy. Raleigh is almost 11 months old now and is just adorable! They're coming to see us later this month and I can hardly wait!!!!! Here are Landen and Taylor having some guy time - just chillin' and watching TV.
I love this picture of Miss B and Brian. Brian is passionate about fishing. The father of a girl with a second one on the way, I hope they will pick up on some of his love of the sport. Girls do fish!
I highly encourage everyone to write a blog. I know with social media, blogs may be a bit outdated but I really enjoy recording my life. When I was in Ohio and my parents were in Virginia, it served as a wonderful way to include them in my Ohio life.
So, stay tuned! This blog is still young!
Next post will feature soap and knitting projects I've been working on.
Thanks so much for reading!
