Act 6; Scene 1: Looking Back on our Fifth Year

Wow it's been five years...

And a month. Ha! Blogging just isn't as simple as it used to be! But here we are, blog-celebrating our fifth anniversary. The number 5 certainly seems too short for what we have created. It seems like we've been together for a long, long time. In a very good way :-)

I have been working on gathering pictures for this post for over a month now, and today as I came to post them, realized that they had not collected in chronological order.

The thought of trying to get them into said order makes me very, very tired. So here is a look at our past year in random selection. 

What a great year!
