I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of my readers (and tweeters) who have stuck with me from the beginning of blogging, and those who have recently found me.
I know that I have many flaws and imperfections. I also know that my blog posts are neither well-written prose nor earth shattering breaking news. I appreciate you all for reading and following along with my evolving life. I write this blog for myself, mainly as a scrapbook of memories, and a way to keep my far away friends and family connected to me. I'm always surprised when people choose to follow my blog or to follow me on Twitter.
I understand that as a blogger, I subject myself to public opinion and judgment. I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for accepting and appreciating me for being me... Annoying phrases, silly blog posts, slow running, plateaued weight loss, materialistic tendencies, obsessive cat pictures, and all.
It is tough moving to a new country and not knowing a soul. Blogging and tweeting have kept me sane and feeling connected. It has also introduced me to some of my very best friends. I try to share things I'm going through, even if they are insignificant or seem "crazy" in hopes that someone else out there in the ether will be able to relate or shed advice.
I'm not perfect and I don't claim to be.
I'm just trying to be the best person I can be.
Thank you for understanding that and remaining loyal readers and friends.
You honestly don't know how much your kind comments and tweets mean to me on a daily basis... I just wanted to say a much overdue...
