3rd Blogiversary

Three years ago today I started this blog, so today I'm sharing snippets from three previous posts and a layout surrounding a "three" from my life (my 3rd birthday).

A Snippet From My First Blog Post
I've thought about this off and on for a little over a year now. Should I start a blog - a place where I can share what's happening in my life, post photos (including my latest scrapbooking pages), maybe even offer advice or inspire someone with my ramblings about books I've read or my latest organizing project? I don't know why today is THE DAY, but here goes . . . my very first blog post!

A Snippet From My First Blogiversary Post
I am so excited to celebrate my ONE YEAR BLOGIVERSARY today. I can hardly believe it's been a year since I published my first blog post. I really started out thinking this would be a little experiment to learn about blogging and to try something new, however I can't imagine my life without blogging now. I truly enjoy the regular exercise of writing and sharing my layouts, book reviews, and other bits and pieces of my life.

A Snippet From My Second Blogiversary Post
It's my TWO YEAR BLOGIVERSARY and today I'm celebrating the fact that I have not only been able to share bits & pieces of my life with each of you, but that I've also preserved memories and stories through that sharing. Each time I publish a post, I'm recording a little bit of what's happening in my life - whether it's showcasing my latest scrapbook layout or reviewing the books I've read or revealing new photos I've taken or discussing my latest organizing project or just simply chronicling the events of our latest adventure.

Thank you so much for stopping by today - I'd love for you to leave a comment and let me know how long you've been reading & what you most enjoy here on my 3-year-old blog.

Happy Blogversary,Melissa....I'm not sure how long I've been visiting you....I would guess about 2 years.
I enjoy the variety on your blog....but especially like seeing your scrap pages.

Happy Anniversary! Been lovely to 'meet' you through BPC and this blog.

As many have said I like the variety of topics, but then I'm a variety of topics blogger myself.
