If you look at the word "six" long enough, it starts to look wrong

You know how that sometimes happens with a word?

I don't mean like weird and wierd, which I'm never sure of. (Yes, there's spell check, thankfully.) But either way looks weird to me. Or wierd to me.

The point of this post, however is, that I have been blogging here at Lemon Gloria for SIX YEARS. Six! Six! Six! (See how wierd weird odd that looks?)

This is longer than I've held all but one of my jobs, longer than I've lived anywhere except now DC. I've now known some of you longer than I've known my husband.


Thank you for six years of laughing and crying with me. Thank you for cheering me on when my dating life was dreadful, and for rejoicing with me at my wedding and my pregnancies and my babies. Thank you for supporting me through the hardest of times with my dad.

Sometimes I don't feel like I have anything interesting to say, and I wonder if this is what I should be doing. And sometimes it feels like so much fun to share stories, and I'm so happy I can.

I suppose you're always where you are, you know? And I'm glad I'm here and you're here with me.

Big hugs and happy weekend, all.

Lisa

  1. Happy 6 years LG! I've been reading your blog just shy of 6 years and still smile every time a new post appears because you never cease to humor, amaze, humble or inspire (sometimes all at once). It's a pleasure to read about your adventures (big and small) and I hope the trying times you experience are somehow lessened by all the positive energy, hugs and support which transpires right here.

  2. Oh I second what HK wrote. Happy Anniversary to all of us! And thanks for writing all these years and sharing and making me think and cry and giggle and nod my head in so much agreement. I hope some day this all goes in to a book so when the day comes and you finally have had enough of us we can still go back and read all these great stories. Have a great weekend LG and Co.
