I wonder about you guys sometimes. How you’re doing, what life has had in store for you. Are you happy or sad or somewhere in between. I talk about myself a lot but you matter, promise. I’m not one of those blogger’s who can be all zen with the whole ‘if no one read my blog, I’d be okay’. I wouldn’t be. I love people, interaction, in a lot of ways validation. You are my people. The community of wanders of the interwebs who found their way here somehow. And I love you for it.

I’m proud of us. This group of awesome nerds {yeah yeah, I pinched that from Pitch Perfect} are welcoming, full of love and generosity  You offer support to each other and to me on a daily basis. I’m proud of the people you are. Hubby and I may have built this space with content but you make it home. You’re like the cuddly soft furnishings or something. A warm blanket on a cold day, air conditioning when it’s hot. I hope you are well. I hope you feel the love. I hope you feel safe here. Welcomed and appreciated. I hope you never forget that no matter how busy I get.

You see, there was a time when I could pop on over to everyone’s blogs every couple of days to see how you were doing. That was when blogger pretty much linked me straight to your door. And there were much less of you. I keep a bookmarks folder on my desktop of your blogs and sites. If you ever leave a link, share something with me from your site I add it to the folder. I miss that. I intend to do it more often. So I thought, it’s time to update that bookmarks folder. There are, after all, a lot of new people here lately.

How did you come to be here? Do you blog? Are you ok?
