Happy 10th Birthday, Blog!

My blog is 10 years old today!

Ten years ago (2002) I was working in Cambridge, MA. I left my job that summer and moved back to Brattleboro, VT, my boyfriend's hometown (and where I lived before moving to Cambridge in the first place).
In 2003 I started DJing on radio free brattleboro.
In 2004 I got married to my true love. Same guy mentioned above.
In 2005 the FCC shut down the radio station.
In 2006 we had a wonderful baby girl. I also went back on the air with WVEW, the new licensed station in town.
In 2007 I was dealing with being a working mother. Looking back, that was hard.
In 2008 I got really into food blogging. That November I posted every day about "Cheap Dinner Ideas."
In 2009 I got really into fitness, mainly running. I lost about 15 pounds and won a local 5K in September.
In 2010 we had a wonderful baby boy. Being at home with him on maternity leave was one of my happiest times ever.
In 2011 I got a great new job that is interesting and challenging and feels like a great fit.
In 2012 I turned 40.

I am dedicating this new decade to myself, to learning and trying to be my very best both for me and for the people around me. This involves:
  • loving my husband very very much
  • being firm yet kind with my children
  • running and cross-training
  • drinking more water
  • taking healthy supplements
  • practicing moderation, including in moderation
  • continuing to blog, yo!

Actually I don't have many gigantic goals because I've already accomplished just about everything I set out to do. I would like some time to enjoy it, and be grateful and present for it. It would be nice to see Europe again, and New York City, and go out West.

It would also be nice to visit my hometown sometime. Including the bar at Kelly's.

Happy Blog Birthday! You should be very proud of all you've accomplished in 10 years - I am proud for you! And you know if you want to come all the West to SoCal - you have a place to stay!
