As I close in on my first year of blogging (December 7th - Pots on Stove and December 16th - Becoming Parents) I can't help but reflect on the friendships I made and the connectedness now felt in what has been a very tumultuous, hilly ride through the land of Infertility.

I've been so impressed and amazed at how this community here comes together and can't help but scream a huge shout out to Mel - The stirrup Queen aka Lollipop Goldstein. She has compiled the most comprehensive list of known IF blogs - and they are categorized by topic. Cheers to you Mel - you have connected people to create a community in what otherwise has been a silent struggle. Words escape me and somehow the words Thank-you just don't seem to capture my gratefulness to you.

I went back and visited my very first post (have you ever done that?), it feels like a million years ago. What a journey, anyhow - I was wondering who my first comment was from and happily it is from someone I still keep in touch with. She is super cool and always sends a happy, upbeat thought my way. If you get a chance - go say hi to Ally.

Peace, love and blogland!

I am so happy when I hear that the list connected people. I mean, that's the point of it, but thank you--this means a lot to me.

And now I have your blogoversary on the LFCA calendar :-)

Aww! Happy upcoming blogiversary! It's always a lot of fun to go back and re-read a first post, especially since a lot of times our blogs become something different than we first imagined. I read mine a while ago, and I'm still fairly happy with what I wrote, and I think it still characterizes me well.

Meeting friends like you has made the blogosphere one of my favorite places to hang out.

Happy Blog-Anniversary!!
We have been blogging since 2005 so I have lost track of all bloggy time.... we have met and corresponded with so many nice people! How can the world be so bad, when all the love and support shows that we are a very kind world?

Merry Christmas!
