This is my 1,000th post.
I started this blog on February 24, 2008 and what I said in my very first post, still holds true today.
I've decided to set this up for myself to essential create a digital scrapbook of my two dogs - Coulee and Lacey. I just wanted a place where I could write about their activities - good and bad and where I could put pictures so I could watch them change over the years. I'm not very well organized on paper - it seems so much easier to do it on the computer.To be honest, I can't believe all of you are here for the ride. I never expected that so many people would be interested in two regular, household mutts. But I'm so thankful that you are.
I love the way the blog has connected me with other people with similar passions and interests! I also love the way I can look back and see how some things have changed, and how so many things haven't.
Growing up, I was never able to write in a diary for long. I tended to start off enthusiastically enough but it always quickly dwindled. Maybe it was because I didn't really like to write about myself? Or maybe I just needed an audience? Or maybe I needed to express myself in photos instead of words and just didn't know it yet? Who knows! All I know is that I like this blog thing. :)
You may have noticed that I don't talk a lot about myself or my family. I'm actually quite a private person but sharing Coulee and Lacey's life with you doesn't make me feel uncomfortable and through them, you get little glimpses of me. We laugh at work about how people really do seem to match their dogs and I have to assume, I'm no different.
So anyway... Thanks for being here. Here's to the next 1,000 posts!
