Six years ago, as I was preparing to move back to Spain, I wanted a means of communicating with people at home, of sharing photos, something beyond group emails. And so I decided, hesitantly, to start a blog.
Six years later, that blog has become this space.
From teaching to being unemployed to working to being back in school (while teaching and working).
It has been here through two new cameras, and actually starting to learn photography. Discovering that I really love it, too.
Over the past six years, I’ve posted, on average, about once a week. That’s nothing compared to many bloggers, but much more than others. But if there’s anything I’m slowly learning, it’s that it doesn’t matter. So please humor me while I lay on the cheese for a moment. I’m happy to have this space. I’m happy to get the chance to write here, or post some pictures, to have the chance to share with some old friends and to make some new ones, too. It’s been a small thing, this blog, but I have approached it with a lot of love.
So I thought it would be fun to highlight some of my favorite posts, the ones that have stuck with me. Maybe you’ll remember one, too?
I expect no one to read them all, or to come close, but it was fun to go back. Perhaps there are some discoveries here for someone.
Who knows how long I’ll keep doing this. But I just renewed my domain for another year. I’m approaching this summer with excitement on many fronts, one of them related to posting here more often. This little space has become my little space, and I’m happy to continue to call it home.
You are welcome here, my blog friends, and I am thankful to share this space with you. Six years! Pretty hard to believe.
