HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY TWO YEAR OLD BLOG BABY






                  WELCOME TO MY BLOGS SECOND  BIRTHDAY!

It can't be true!  Can it really be the second birthday of my Blog?  And yet I realize that I am still here and pretty much still standing (or actually sitting at my desktop computer).  I am feeling pretty stunned, but also very happy.  What started out as an adventure at the suggestion of my husband has actually taken on a life of it's own.  The words I wrote on my blog's first birthday in 2015 I still find very appropriate:

"It comes as a real surprise to me that I published my first blog posting one year ago on June 10, 2014. When my husband suggested that I create a blog to share our nomadic life I had to pause to consider. The truth of the matter was that I had to educate myself as to exactly what was a blog. There definitely was much to learn and consider, but it was a challenge and exciting. And since I had a considerable amount of time on my "retired" hands, why not? This blog gig has grown on me and it has definitely become very much a labor of love. I enjoy the whole blog process from deciding the subject of my next posting, to working on the photographs to be shared in the posting, and to researching the information I want to share with my blog readers. I started this experience learning to crawl like an infant and now I feel like a soon-to-be toddler."

So here we are.  Another year of sharing our "nomadic" life and all of it's wonderful memories.  I like to think I am progressing in this blogging experience and hopefully my posts are becoming better, more interesting, and more entertaining.  Until our next birthday celebration, I thank you for joining me along this journey and I look forward to another year of MEXICO AND BEYOND: LAURA'S PHOTO JOURNEY.
