I'm so happy that Ruth Ayres started a Celebrate Link-Up on her blog!!! I will be joining the celebration every Saturday!!
I have been absent from Celebration Saturday for a couple weeks - not because I didn't have anything to celebrate, but because I've been so busy creating and enjoying celebrations! I've missed since Katie's graduation and party, but I covered that in a Slice of Life. Here are my celebrations since then:
1. I celebrate my two-year blogiversary today! My first post was written on June 21st, 2012, and it was on the 40 Book Challenge. It was an entry into a wonderful blogging community. Since then, I've written 402 posts, have 149 followers, and 95,873 pageviews. How exciting! It's not the stats, though, that keep me writing. I love participating in memes and link-ups and following blogosphere friends and their wonderful blogs. Blogging keeps me motivated, gives me a forum to practice a habit of writing, connects me to others, and helps me clarify and share ideas and philosophies. Yay, Blogger!
2. Two weekends ago my husband's company had their summer outing. We enjoyed Cincinnati and a Reds baseball game. We always have fun with the people in his company - they are wonderful.
3. Last Saturday
I drove up to where Libby is living during her summer internship with Smuckers. We had fun eating and shopping at the company store, finding a great bookstore and clothing boutique in historical downtown Wooster, and spending time together.
4. I'm excited for the #nctechat tomorrow. I'll be co-hosting with Nicholas Provenzano (@thenerdyteacher). Thank you, Beth Shaum, for asking me! We'll be talking about summertime professional learning. That's something to celebrate! Join us!
Off to read all of YOUR celebrations!
