Boy, how did the stars align for this?
Today is usually when I have an "Inspiration Thursday" post. 
This is also my 1000th post.
And it just so happens that today, we also turn two!

Yep, it is the 2nd anniversary of the Two Men and a Little Farm blog.  I believe in the world of blogging this is called a Blogaversary.  Or Blogiversary.  Or Blogoversary.  I'm never sure which one is right but the sentiment is the same.

However you spell it, it means the same thing; two years ago today, I turned on my computer, sat down to a blank screen and used my fingers to type into the scary world of blogging.  My goal at the time was to just keep track of buying the house and property and have a record of sorts of the progress we made on it.  I always thought it would be great if people found me and even better if they came back more than once, but of course, I didn't know if it would really happen.  I just enjoyed the process, it allowed me to be creative and it was also far less scary than I had imagined it would be.

Now here I sit, 2 years later, on my usual day of posting an inspiring picture, typing the 1000th post!  Yes, if you can believe it, I've managed to blab on and on about some topic or another ONE THOUSAND different times.

The last year has brought many changes, both to the house and to the property.  There have been triumphs and fun things and things we've learned that we didn't know.  There have been some exciting makeover projects and DIY things, some great recipes and cooking adventures and even some gardening fun.  There are also projects I had hoped to get to but didn't quite make it.  There were creatures galore (snakes, mice, wasps).  There was a sudden job change, a new car and even an unexpected car accident.  But through it all, you keep visiting and offer the kind of support I only dreamed of when I started this two years ago.

Thanks, each and every one of you.  I just can't imagine how this journey would have been without being able to bring each of you along for the ride.  So much more to happen in the next year.  Can't wait to share it all!

Thank you again.
