I realized the other day that I've been blogging for almost 5 years now. You can go back in time and read all about it in the link to right (My Archive from Years Past). Except we didn't call it blogging back then. That term might have been around, but I'm not sure. We just called it making updates. Marty's website dates back to 1999, and after he deemed it acceptable, he allowed me to make some updates myself. Just kidding, he really lets me do what I want, I promise! So at the beginning there weren't a whole lot of people that I knew that also had webpages that they updated frequently, except for these guys, so I waited patiently for them to make their own updates. They were the extent of my blog roll at the time. Over the years, and really in the past 2 years it seems that blogs have absolutely exploded. I can barely keep up with reading them all - and they sure do pass the time when I have slow days at work :) I used to think, come on! Update already! But now I don't really have to say that since there are so many of you out there that I enjoy reading. Anyways, it's pretty neat to go back and read what I wrote back then. I would never remember some of the things we did except for the archive. I certainly don't expect other people to go back and read it, but I'm definitely glad I have it. Kind of like an interactive scrapbook for us non-creative types.
I like putting up pictures on this thing, and this is a picture of Marty and I from 2003 (the year I started blogging! Pay attention!) I was a lot younger and Marty had a lot more hair. The guy in the middle was a pretty good triathlete back in the day. Pop quiz and a gold star to whoever says who it is first :) Now if you are a VERY astute reader, you may have noticed that yes, this is the same dress I wore to Aaron and Casey's wedding at the beginning of May. Five years later and still getting my money's worth.
