Just Jamie is Just Grateful

I missed my "Blogaversary."  Only by 4 days, which for me right now is pretty good.  I've been missing a lot.  Friends and relatives' birthdays and anniversaries (sorry).  And now this?  Sheez.  So for one year, and four days, I have been a blogger.  Thank you, truly, for the many friendships I have made this past year.  I could not have predicted the true pleasure I have found in getting to know you all.  

Despite being a  tad off on the calendar, I'm not missing out on those moments, you know the moments, where your children nestle into you, their breath close by, their hair tangled in yours, arms wrapped tightly around.  I'm holding on to those, and for that I am grateful.  

Grateful.

For weekends like these...

No regrets about the blog, k? Four days, phooey. Because you? You're touching lives. Real lives. The most important lives on Earth. The littlest ones.

Cheri @ Blog This Mom! said...

Oh, I meant to say Happy Bloggaversary. See, I was one comment late.

Happy Blogaversary! enjoy your time with your kiddos... posts can be late and happen whenever... moments with the twins only happen when they happen... take advantage of the time you have to cherish their childhood

Someone told me about a year ago, when I too apologized for not posting very much that "blogging is for you. You blog when You can about what You can. Don't worry about us...we still love you!"
So...yeah...go spend time with your kids and hub and family members....THEY are the ones who are important, J. Us? We'll be here. Waiting to see how things are going.
And...happy blogoversary!!

(and really...can someone explain to me WHY I am NOT in San Diego!!!!I'm showing my husband those pictures right now!!!!) :-D

At least for once I'm not entirely to blame for being late in saying HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY!

Stephanie said...

Happy Blogoversary!!

I almost missed mine too and was out of town the weekend it rolled around as well.

That looks like bliss. You are forgiven ;)

Kori said...

If I had someplace like that where I live that I could take my kids, I would miss mine, too!

The Girl Next Door said...

A Blogaversary! Awesome! Happiness to you. You asked me if I wanted more kids - honestly? Nope. Originally I wanted 12. No joke. But then I got pregnant and threw up for 9 months and was miserable and said, "Um I'm done." Plus I didn't think I could handle more. Sometimes do I wish I had a housefull? Yes, but then i borrow a bunch of kids for the night or the weekend and that feeling goes away. We even borrow them for vacations. But I don't have to send them to college....or pay for their braces... plus my ex only wanted ONE so he felt I got one over on him by having twins.

It is a tough choice!

I'd be more worried if you WEREN'T enjoying those precious moments with your babes because you were on the computer. Happy blogoversary!!

Did I ever tell you Tony and I honeymooned in Carlsbad?? I'm not sure how close you (or Cheri) are to there, but we consider it one of our happiest places.

LOVES!

Kathryn said...

The BEST excuse to be absent from blogging. Ahhh, life. :)
