Ok, so I missed the anniversary (by quite a bit actually) – but I’ve hit 3 years blogging! Wow. I was doing some admin clean-up and considering if I want to try a different skin (I feel like the “look” of my blog is… off/wrong/meh). I looked at my post history and found it had… Continue reading Memories: Three years
