mean mama is five years old today! happy blog-writing anniversary to me!!
i think it's telling that my very first post was about a trip to the grocery store, and that i surreptitiously took a photograph of a bunch of chicken that the person in front of me was purchasing. i don't blog so much about hannaford lately, but i tweet about it all the time.
i've had over 30,000 page views.
my dog has changed over the years. he used to be darker red, and spottier.
my boy has changed. he hardly ever wears a sailor suit anymore.
my girl has changed. she almost never wears her hair in shrimpies anymore. nor does she carry a parasol.
my pictures have gotten much bigger.
i've baked a hell of a lot of cupcakes in the past five years.
we used to have a fish. now we have a guinea pig.
we used to have a book store. now we have a clothing company.
i could go on and on, but i'll sum this up by saying that when i read back over five years of bloggery, my favorite thing is looking at old pictures of bean and boo and remembering all the fun things the four of us have done together over the past few years. but also? i crack myself up.
