A Double Birthday

You’d think I’d be better prepared with a touching, heartfelt post. After all, I’ve known this day was coming for a long time. For 365 days, in fact. What day is it?

It’s Q’s second birthday! Less important, but still worth mentioning, today also marks my and SwingDaddy’s one-year blog-oversaries.

Baby Q

I can’t express how much the little dude, SwingDaddy, and I have all changed in one year. I still call him baby, but he’s really not anymore. He can hold a conversation, run around, share his own stories, play music of a sort, and pretend to do tai chi. I love you, my cutie! (Did you ever wonder why I call him Q? It’s short for cutie/QT, or more geekily, cutiepie/QTπ)

On the blog side, I set out to see if I could write a little something every day for a year, and now I’ve done that. I’ve always wanted to write a book and made excuses for not having the time. Having a blog was a way to take little steps to improve my writing and actually do some of it, instead of just talking about it. Along the way, I’ve made friends with some amazing people and I’m humbled by your collective wisdom and wit.

One Year Ago

I originally had greater thoughts to share for this double birthday, but after a long conference day presenting product in a both highly technical and theatrical setting, I’m exhausted. Please imagine that the last sentence in the previous paragraph included a link to your blog - I'll make it up to you later, along with more Q stories, after I get some sleep.

Here’s to Year Three for Q! Cheers!
