Today marks the one year blogiversary of Seashells and Sunflowers! Thanks for taking the time to read and comment on the blog and/or email me. To celebrate one year of posts I did some considerable tweaking in terms of the blog's appearance, but I think the work paid off. I apologize to anyone trying to access Seashells and Sunflowers earlier this week, as it was no doubt confusing to see some aspect of the layout changing every 15 minutes!
If you've been reading Seashells and Sunflowers in your feed reader or by email subscription and it's been a while since you actually visited the site, I invite you to stop on by and kick the tires a bit – maybe poke around the archives or explore some of the blogs in my blogroll. Zip on down to the bottom of the page and show me some love by adding yourself as a follower – it just takes a moment. If you're a perpetual lurker and have never posted a comment, I'd love to hear from you in the comments section. Lastly, should you happen to feel a touch nostalgic, read the blog's inaugural post from July 3, 2008, aptly entitled "Seashells and Sunflowers."
When I started the blog, I never imagined all the great friends I would meet along the way, both virtually and in real life. I'm grateful for this medium that has allowed me to connect with people that I otherwise may have never known, as well as keep in touch with those of you back home. I hope that in some way my writing helps bridge the distance.
I put together this 30-second video as a little birthday present for the blog. Enjoy!
