4 years ago today I started this blog

Here I am.  The 4 year blogger.

Amazing how time flies by. 

I looked back on my very first post.  I laid out what I like to call my mission statement for my blog.  I am glad that to this day, that mission statement is still valid. I wanted to make you laugh when you read my posts. I wanted you to forget whatever was bringing you down and for a few minutes laugh.  Let's face it, when we laugh we burn calories (truth!) and we give ourselves a surge of positivity.  We can all use a little more positivity in our lives.

And in true "I will make you laugh" form, my second post did just that.  A newlywed wife trying to cook dinner for her husband but having absolutely no clue on what she was doing... cue: cooking disaster.

If you would have asked me 4 years ago where I thought I would be, my answer would have NOT included me as an unemployed person, as of Jan 25th, due to my company relocating.  Me writing this post during the day at home since I had a day off to go to an interview (pray it went well for me!) for a possible dream job.  Me as still furbaby mama, and not a "real" mama.  But that's the thing about life, it's always throwing curve balls that you just have to grab and keep going.  Would I want my life any different? Absolutely not.  I am where I am SUPPOSE to be.

What does this have to do with my 4 year blogging anniversary?  Everything.
Blogging is a part of my everyday life. I have shared the joys and the crappy times with you all.  But through it all, the blogging community has always been there with love, support, and even a few of your giggles to make my crappy day a bit less crappy.  Thank you. 

I wrote a heartfelt post about why I am a blogger called My name is Kenya and I am PROUD to be a blogger.  This sums it all up.  This is why I blog.

Blogging makes me happy and I love it!  Thank you for coming along this  journey with me.

Here's to another 4 years of blogging!

4 years is a LONG time for blogging! I'm glad you're still at it and that we're "blog buddies" now =] Yea.. I'm lame like that.
