GrowingSlower Turns One!

Wow! A whole year has gone by, and I’m still here clickity cliking away in this space. (Anyone who has ever shared an office with me can tell you I type really loud.)  One year! As GrowingSlower readership was growing this year, DH asked me, Can you imagine 100 people coming by to talk to you everyday? I’m so humbled that is exactly what you have been doing by virtually stopping by to read and join in the conversation through the comments. Thank you!

  1. Congrats on your first year blogging! Isn’t an incredible experience? I’m pretty new to your blog so I’m going to check out some of your top posts!

  2. Happy anniversary. My first one passed this summer and I didn’t even acknowledge it. :( Next year, I’ll have to do something special.
