Today I'm celebrating two years of blogging. Who would have known! I sure didn't. Looking back on some of my first blog posts brings back so many memories. Events that don't feel like two years ago. Pictures of Shane that I can hardly believe my eyes. Wow, has he sure changed and grown up. And little things that I don't think I would have even remembered if I had not blogged about them. This is truly like a family digital scrapbook.
I thought in honor of my 2 year blog anniversary, I'd repost my Life List from 2 years ago. Feels like just yesterday that I wrote it. Let's see if I've made any progress....
