Hello friends! Today, Takeover Week is temporarily canceled for a very special reason. It’s the two year anniversary of the day I started this blog! I’m so grateful I did and for all the good blogging has brought to my life.
Did I ever think I would still be blogging here two years later with plans to blog indefinitely? No, I’d never even stuck with a blog for a full year before. (I had two other blogs) I simply started this blog as a side blog. I figured, hey, why not make a post every month or so? Little did I know I would be here two years later, still loving Build a Bears.
