It's Hard to Believe It's Already Been A Year....

HOW ON EARTH DID THIS HAPPEN? But yes, it's true...TODAY IS MY BLOGOVERSARY! I've been anticipating this day for months in the hopes that Words Like Silver would suddenly transform from a somewhat clumsy infant blog into a mature and polished blog. I'm hoping it will, with time, but for now I'm going to relapse and run around the room shouting and using hundreds of exclamation points and bold text.The plan for my blogoversary is that I'm going to do a post a day for the next week: acknowledgement posts, giveaways, goal posts, reflections on the blog, and generally posts talking about the year of Words Like Silver and what I hope to see in the next years.I could never have expected it to come this far. I confess, I was always that person who hoped that they'd write something meaningful and glorious and my blog would get a billion followers and become an internet sensation and all this fabulous stuff would happen...and fabulous things have happened, but not as extravagant and loud as what I was dreaming of. I'm ridiculously excited and way too emotional. Laughing, crying, the entire bit, and mostly just a huge bunch of love for you guys who actually read this because without y'all, never of this could have happened. I still remember when Words Like Silver was just a tiny little blog that only my uncle read and a few of my friends because they needed Accelerated Reader points to drop their lowest grades in Language Arts.I'M FREAKING OUT! I'm also completely ignoring my inner editor that wants to make this post as professional and polished as possible, but I'm feeling that this is the type of post that I can splurge on and let my inner chaos explode onto the page.

OHMYGOODNESS I DON'T KNOW HOW I GOT THIS FAR BUT THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING I LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH AND IT'S STRANGE BECAUSE I'VE NEVER EVEN MET MOST OF YOU BUT I FEEL LIKE WE'RE BEST FRIENDS AND I'VE PUT SO MANY HOURS AND SO MUCH WORK INTO THIS AND IT'S A YEAR OLD AND I STILL REMEMBER MAKING IT AND OHMYGOSH OHMYGOSH OHMYGOSH.

Anyways, I just wanted to freak out for a bit. Love you guys! And actually, I've decided that I lied. I'm going to do the acknowledgement posts today and then later in the week I'll do the crazy-fun stuff like giveaways and reflections and goals and all that. I have way too many of you to thank.See y'all in...however long it takes me to write the next post!Grace
