Today is my 500th post! Just for fun, I checked my stats and Great Follies has had 13,026 views and has 86 followers. Some blogs out there see these kinds of numbers daily, but they are huge for me! But it is not about the numbers. I am not out to see how many visitors I can get or how many people I can get to follow us on our journey, it is about the journey itself. It is about remembering the moments that matter most. The years pass so quickly and it is nice to have a way to look back. I enjoy sharing all of our moments with you, and I am so glad you that you have all chosen to be a part of our family.
I have always enjoyed scribbling random thoughts down in my notebook, but when Rob suggested I start a blog two and a half years ago, I had no idea how much I was going to enjoy it. It started out as a farm blog back in Spokane, but that only lasted a few months until we ended up moving back to Montana. Continuing the farm blog was not really an option since there was no longer a farm, but I wasn’t ready to give it up, so I started Great Follies. It quickly became a family blog, a place where I could share daily life, dreams for tomorrow, memories of the past. Great Follies has become such an important part of my life that my days do not feel complete unless I have shared something with you. I skip days more than I would like to, but that is life with the three crazy kids that you have come to know so well.
Life has changed so much for us over the years. We have struggled to find our place and after many failed attempts at things we thought would work for us, I think we may finally be on the right path. There is still much to learn, but I feel as though we are at least headed in the right direction. I guess it just took us a while to realize that we weren’t meant to fit in the box.
So I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for sharing your time with us. For being such an important part of our journey. For your encouragement and support. For your kind words. In my eyes, Great Follies is successful in its own way, and I owe all of that to you.
Let the journey continue…
