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. In celebration of this first birthday, I am sharing the direct links to my thirty postings in order that you might enjoy re-visiting them with me. Thank you for joining me along this journey and I look forward to another year of MEXICO AND BEYOND: LAURA'S PHOTO JOURNEY!
