Our 9th Blogoversary! (Thankful Thursday)



On October 25, 2009 our blog was born!! Here is the link to our first blog post. We didn't have the room to post a photo for every year, so we just picked a few.

Many of you have been with us since we began in 2009! We thank you and are grateful for the many friends we have made through the years.

It's been a wild and wacky ride! If we have made you smile even just once, then that has made it all worth while.

Thank you for the kindness you have shown Cody and I through the years, and thank you for caring about my boy!

    1. Thank you sooo much!! Yes!! I sooo remember, you HAVE been following us that long! I feel awful because your blog and a bunch of others stopped coming via Feedburner. I am trying to catch up with those that are on BlogLovin' which has helped, but if you don't see us around, that is why!! xoxo

    1. you KNOW WE "LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU!!!" You and Brian were probably one of the first blogs that we ever followed. We sooo remember the day we found you because we fell in love with Brian. We never looked back! Then, when I was lucky enough to meet you in person at conferences, it was just the BEST!!! You are one of the kindest hearted and most genuine people we have ever met. We cherish your friendship!!
