BLOGOVERSARY BLOGIVERSARY BLOGAVERSARY

Today, it's off to the farm to spend the day working in the garden, cleaning up the annoying grass runners that have taken over the first 1/3 of the garden.  Since I've already been on the big green zen machine the other day during the week (after the land closing), the garden will be the next target.

SO while we're at the farm working on things...


Four years ago, I sat down at the computer and started typing.  I wondered if anyone would even be interested in watching our progress as we made plans to buy some land with an old house on it?  Then, would they come along as we started working on it, not knowing how the journey would progress?

Four years later, here we are.
Some stats:

489 FOLLOWERS (come on 500)
1,850 POSTS (including this one)
15,746 COMMENTS (and counting)
2,451,900 PAGE VIEWS (this one still amazes us)

Fixing things up at the farm is a slow process, some of the time it's successful, and other times, not so much...but that's what we expected when we set out on the journey.  We are just grateful that all of you have come along for the journey and keep coming back.  It's been a wonderful journey, we've made so many friends we didn't know we could have and we love all of you!

Here's to many more years, hope y'all will stay along for the ride!
The best is yet to come!


We're still not sure the correct spelling of a blog anniversary, LOL!

Blogi?  Blogo?  Bloga?
Whatever it is, thank you all!

  6. I think of blogs as having birthdays. Isn't it 4 years ago when your blog was "born"? That might be easier, no alternated spellings, ha. Happy day to you, whatever we call it. :---)

  10. CONGRATS TO YOU BOTH! I am enjoying the ride. There is no hurry, just relax and have fun. That's the most important thing...you have to enjoy it. If it's 'work', you might resent it later on. If I recall, you are only in your 40's, you have plenty of time

    1. Wow, wise words. OK, I am in my 40's (but not for much longer, ha) and 2nd man has crossed over the threshold of 50 (but just barely). We do have plenty of time though, you are right. That's one battle I've always fought, I just want it all done now but when it becomes hard 'work' that you don't enjoy, that's no fun. Thank you!!

  11. you both know how much we appreciate what you are doing and the plans and foresight that you have. we are very glad for both of you and wish you well in all of your "adventures". getting your place set up the way you "want it" takes time...trust me on that one. but with all of your enthusiasm and joy - those jobs become daily chores...and daily chores become time doing exactly what you want, when you want. i am so proud of the both of you. so i'll leave off with a big CONGRATULATIONS!

    your friends,
    kymber and jambaloney

  14. Congrats and THANK YOU for sharing your wonderful journey with us. It is nice to connect with people who have the same passion (and I think the same sort of trials and tribulations) with those of us across the miles and the seas. Your blog is the start of my day and I often check in at night as well. Looking forward to the continued journey.

    1. Many times, we are just amazed how the internet connects us all in such a good way. It can be used for bad stuff but these are the moments that make it so worthwhile. To know that somewhere on the other side of this beautiful planet, we are part of someone's routine just amazes me. You over there, Dani in South Africa, John in the UK and so many others, it's just so neat to see all of us sharing. Thank you!!
