Today PICKED turns one. I cannot cannot cannot believe its been an entire year.

So. Happy birthday to us. Happy birthday to us. Happy Birthday dear sweet little blog and to my newly found kindred spirits.... Happy Birthday to us.

I say us because I feel like we have formed a bond, you and me. Now I know, not all of us really know each other- but its okay. In my mind's eye I feel like I do. Like we have been friends for ever so long- and will be for many years to come. Thank you, by the way. This year has meant more to me than I can even write. Thank you for letting me visit with you- wherever you are. Thank you for your kind, encouraging words. Thank you for making me feel so very special- like in my small way I am contributing to your day- to your own little corner of the earth. Thank you for sharing, laughing, writing, trying, rolling your eyes with (at) me. Lets make wishes right now, you and me....

I read this some time ago, wrote it down on some scrap paper and have had it un-artfully pinned to my bulletin board right in front of me to share at some point....

"I shall anticipate pleasure everywhere and find it too, for it is everywhere! I shall involve myself wholly...everything matters! I am alive...I am beautiful...what else is there? "

-Susan Sontag
