Happy Birthday, everyday epistle!

happy birthday, beautiful! by philosophy

On February 12th, 2011, in the midst of trepidation, tears, handwringing and prayer, I published my first post with these words: It was inevitable. At some point I would blog. 

That was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

So what do you get a blog for its first birthday? A Twitter account of course.

That’s right. Blogger girl’s taken to running with the Twitterati.

Okay. It’s more like I’m crawling through molasses to catch up with these cats. Let’s just say I have a lot to learn.

Did you know Twitter is free?

See? I learned something new already. Join in and follow @everydayepistle.

Thank you for taking the time to read, relate and share. Blogs are a dime a dozen. What sets them apart are their readers.

Happy Birthday, little blog. Full steam ahead.

EW's balloon wreath

Let all that I am praise the LORD;
with my whole heart, I will praise His holy name.
Let all that I am praise the LORD;
may I never forget the good things He does for me.
He forgives all my sins
and heals all my diseases.
He redeems me from death
and crowns me with love and tender mercies.
He fills my life with good things.
My youth is renewed like the eagle’s! Psalm 103:1-5 NLT

    Aimee – is your front door painted eggplant/purple? It looks like it in the photo. Mine is, & I love it! Also Happy Birthday to my fave blogster! May you enjoy many more! (:

    • Thanks, Diana. As for the wreath, no, this isn’t my door. It’s my friend’s door. She’s stylish that way. I was so taken by her charming wreath I had to snap a picture of it. Then lo and behold what do I see on Pinterest but a pin of a balloon wreath like hers! lol. I may have to break down, get crafty and make one of these in real life…

  9. Happy birthday!! And welcome to Twitter. It’s a weird (but fun) world.

  10. Happy One Year Blogiversary!
