Can you believe it? It's been already 2 years since I started doing this. Well, I'm sure my stomach doesn't want to believe it. But it's true. From that first post in November of 2008, I have both experienced and learned a lot. Hey, I'm still learning lots every day! I need to give thanks to the many readers of this blog who leave insightful and encouraging comments. After all, it was that first comment that prompted me to do more than my "one" post. Yes, that's right, I only started this blog to get a particular someone off my case. She was an annoyance then; yet an inspiration today. Without her encouragement, this would've never existed. I have to reiterate that this blog is a passion of mine that is still a hobby of some sorts. I sincerely hope it is exemplified in my writing and pictures.
To show my appreciation for continued readership, I'm holding another draw for a $50.00 gift card to a restaurant which is convenient for the winner. Yes, it is less than I had for last years draw; but it comes out of my own pocket, so forgive me. Blame the HST or something like that. So, for each person who leaves a comment on this thread, they will be entered into a draw for the GC. Please leave at least a last name initial so I can differentiate between people with the same name. The draw will be held on November 15th via a random draw (using Random.org). Once again, thanks for reading and let's see if I have the appetite for more!
