Happy anniversary, twopretzels.com.

(Um, why didn't I think of this sooner? A birthday DOUGHNUT?!)

I find it quite ironic that according to about.com the appropriate way to celebrate my blog's four-year-anniversary would be to either gift me fruit or flowers (traditional) or appliances (modern). (Did you read that Craig? Buy me a Dyson. Or a bouquet of happy flowers. Or a papaya.)

I love this blog. YAY! Four years! So much has changed since that fateful day in 2006... Now, 3,510 posts later - here we are!

I could get sentimental, but I shan't.

I shall just say that I felt VERY good about comparing last year's google analytics web stats to this year's google analytics web stats. I'm growing. THANK YOU for reading and THANK YOU for telling your friends to read.

Page visits are up 12% over last year and Mondays continue to be the most popular visiting day. (Is this because of Lila Lunes? I believe so... She's a cutie, isn't she? Maybe I WILL continue with Lila Lunes after all...)

I know that the tone of the 'ole blog has changed drastically this past year - more baby stuff, less random stuff. To be honest, I've struggled with this change. For some reason I thought that I'd be able to write as I wrote pre-baby and pre-parenting. You know, the same frequency and the same topics.


I was wrong.

My priorities have shifted and have become maybe less universal and bit more concentrated - however, ya'll have stuck with me. THANKS!

If I could hug you for reading (and commenting!), I would. (Ask anyone who knows me. I'm a hugger.)

Thank you so much for visiting and thank you for reading.

With lots of blogger love,

P.S. As tradition has dictated, I must link to my first-ever post. Yay.
