Happy birthday blog!
One year ago today you were born…it seems like it was just yesterday. You were such a wee little thing, but look at you now with over 27,450 visits.
And you play well with others. Why you’ve got friends in Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, Belgium, Scotland, France, and all over the United States.
I remember the day you were Freshly Pressed – oh my! – with no advance warning, I didn’t even have time to freshen up the house before all the guests arrived, 1,974 of them. My head’s still reeling from all the excitement. I’m pretty sure that’s when you picked up a few of your 102 active subscribers.
I see you there pulling yourself up and standing on your own little elfin feet. Before you know it, you’ll be into everything and running at break-neck speed!
I have a sneaking suspicion the terrible two’s are just around the corner…
Congratulations ! We keep watching and growing with you!
I am Love, Jeff
Jeff – Thank you for always stopping by!
Happy Birthday Baby! It has been a special year and I am proud to be a witness to your growth. I too will be delivering a blog soon, just a wee bit more development before its birth. I know you will be great friends! Have a beautiful day!!
Lisa – I’m so looking forward to meeting your baby. I know she’s due any day 🙂
Oh,I bet the next thing will be pretty little Dresses,frilly socks,and cute shoes, not to mention a hat to match.
Don’t forget the sunglasses.
Don’t let the dogs push you down!
Kim – Your comment made me laugh. Thanks so much for the well wishes.
Gil – I’m so glad you popped in. Thank you! (Psssst, I love your new gravitar photograph)…
Oh, my word! Just look at you! I was on hand the very first day you came in to the World….and now…just look how you’ve grown! It won’t be long before you’ll be pulling up your socks as well and taking Big Girl steps out into the bigger, wider world and I’ll be there to witness that as well. Even though your mama has often had a busy, hectic schedule she has always had time for you and your friends. She’s taken lovely photographs every inch of the way and recorded your growth carefully. We can always look back on your first year as a time of learning, laughter and life lived in wonder. Here are my best wishes for a Happy Birthday, looking forward to the next year of watching you stretching up, Up, UP!
Sandi – Thank you so much for your consistent visits to Speaking from the Heart. I oh-so-appreciate you!
Oh wow, Laurie, congratulations!! Your little girl is most certainly going to continue to grace this world with her wisdom and beauty, for which I am extremely grateful!!
OM – How fun that you stopped in for a quick hello. Thank you for the well wishes!
Happy birthday, Baby Blog! Look at you walking all over the place…sharing your contagious love and healing wherever you go. (I laughed so much at your headline, baby. You really know how to talk at such a young age!)
Kathy – I’m glad you got a chuckle from today’s title. There’s been many a time when yours have made me laugh out loud!
Laurie…congratulations!! I read your beautiful blog often, but don’t comment much. You’ve inspired me to put on my big girl panties and write a comment 🙂
Helen – I’m so glad you left a comment today, thank you!
Sam – Thank you! I can well imagine that your fingers are “smokin'” the keys on your laptop right now as you busily prepare your blog for tomorrow morning’s post. I always look forward to your Monday Morning Diary.
Readers – Are you thinking about seeing the new thriller, “Unknown” or the animated “Gnomeo and Juliet?” Check out what Sam Juliano has to say in his Monday Morning Diary (Feb 21) over at Wonders in the Dark.
Happy Birthday to you Speaking From The Heart! You got the best mom nurturing you along. We all love you and your awesome expressions here.
Kathy S. – I followed the link and oh-me-oh-my does that ever look delicious! Thank you for the warm birthday wishes and decadent treat!
it has been a blessing and a very much enjoyed treat to have been with you this past year, Laurie. I look forward to arriving for a visit, have a delicious helping of your wisdom, and leave knowing more than I did before. I love this connection.
Barbara – I’m so glad for your consistent encouragement! And thank you for always providing delicious food for thought over at Eternal Presence. I always look forward to tucking into your calorie-packed wisdom.
Fortunately, Laurie, my calories only show up in the weight of one’s presence not on their scale! We should write a book using the metaphor food for thought.
Barbara – You could single-handedly sell “Food for Thought” straight from the meaty posts in your blog. And I’d be the first one in line (actually, Sandi and I would be pushing/shoving for the head of the line) at your book launch!
Congratulations on your anniversary. I enjoy reading your blog and I have gained so much from your wisdom.
Chris – It’s good to see you here, thank you for popping in! I look forward to seeing you this coming Sunday.
Let the training wheels come off and your loving wisdom keep flowing.
Congratulations and all the best.

Daisy – I so appreciate your birthday well wishes, thank you!
Wow I am impressed and what a nice announcement.
I have been blogging 3 years and only have 16 subscribers and about 300 readers a week….
I love having folks read my words and ideas, but am seriously thinking I need to put my efforts elsewhere as blogging is not a game i am playing well…
Folks used to purchase lots of books from my site, but not any more…it makes no money. Now I have to figure out what I will try next…truly a failure at making any money in my lifetime.
Patricia – Thank you so much for stopping in with heart-felt birthday wishes. I appreciate you!
Happy one year blog anniversary, Laurie! It’s amazing what can happen in a year!
Barbara – thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU!
