Hehe…she said “wood”

April 3rd, 2011

I can’t believe I forgot – yesterday was my 5th anniversary here at Michelle Smiles.  In case you were wondering, the traditional gift is wood.  Feel free to shower me with wooden gifts.

Five years ago, I started this little blog hoping to become part of the online adoption community so that I could learn from all of you.  We had decided we were going to adopt and we were pretty sure Guatemala was the place for us but WOW I was naive and stupid.  I had no idea what I was getting us into.  But I made some amazing friends, spent some time in an gorgeous country, become a medium sized fish (briefly) in our little adoption blogging pond – now back to tadpole status out in the mommy blogger ocean, and brought home the most amazing little girl who is starting kindergarten in a few months.  Then I moved to TN, got knocked up, had a baby, and things started getting quiet here at Michelle Smiles.  That’s okay.  Despite the fact that I should probably hang up my blogging hat since I’m not much of a blogger, I’m too attached to my little corner of the blogosphere to give it up.

Thanks everyone for taking the ride with me.

    Happy Anniversary!!! I used to love reading everyone blogs during our adoption process. It was one of the things that kept me sane… I do miss the adoption forum and blogs now days but I don’t have the time to read them like I used to and I know the bloggers are busier too!!

    Happy Anniversary! 5 years as a blogger – in a few months you’ll be the mother of a 5 year old. Yes I know its killing you. I have no idea how the time passed so quickly. I’ve been reading since the Summer of 2006, so not quite the beginning. I’ll keep reading as long as you blog, too invested now! Congratulations and thanks for sharing your life, and story with me.
