They have carried me through some difficult times and I can’t thank Tara enough for so generously offering these podcasts for free.

Tomorrow marks 12 years of me feeding this blog. So many feelings! How fitting that this was my very first post.
My blog is my longest running labor of love. Dig into my archives and you’ll see how the blog has evolved over time in terms of what catches my attention. Feels good to stick with something for this long.
Thank you for reading and happy my blog birthday to you!
