time flies


Guess what?! Today is April 1st. I know, I know, April Fool's Day....not one of my favorite days, but you know what else today is? It's the one year anniversary of this here blog! Clothesline Chronicles is one year old. Crazy, huh? Click here to see the very first post ever. My girls have grown so much, we've accomplished a lot, things have changed, I've changed. I've grown and changed as a wife, a mom, a daughter, a friend. I have strengthened family bonds, made new friends in blogland (some here in this very town and some as far away as Norway!), built stronger relationships with some dear friends. I've been encouraged and challenged to do more and sometimes to do nothing at all. Action is sometimes required so as not to miss an opportunity to help those around you, but stillness is sometimes needed so as not to miss what's right in front of you. So I celebrate this year of Clothesline Chronicles. What fun it has been so far! I'd like to do a little giveaway to commemorate the moment...that might have to wait a little while because I've got girls growing like weeds, family that needs encouragement, and friends that are beginning new chapters. I'll let you know when I have a giveaway...more than likely it'll be when the sun is consistently warm so that my sewing machine and I can spend some quality time together on the front porch during naptime.

So, thanks so much for reading my ramblings and leaving comments. I can't wait to see what this year has in store for us.

Today is Sam's parents' wedding anniversary. Can you believe they actually picked that date? I have never figured it out...usually, you have a say when you get married...was the preacher busy the weekend before or after???? Anyway...I have loved reading your blog all this time...not sure I have been with you your entire year...I need to go back and look if I recognize it all from way back when.
Looking forward to another year of reading all about your days and your beautiful family! Love it all!
Your friend, Kim
