My blog-o-versary is tomorrow. It's been three years since I started this blog. I can't believe it's been that long. And it's been even longer since I first started writing.

I've made good friends, had two kids, written a lot, gotten my hubby writing, and read a lot. I've seen friends get agents, sell books, and find success. It's so inspiring.

For all of you who have been part of my life during the last three years, thank you. I hope to be more active in blogging and writing again in the coming year!

Spreading the Good Cheer

I just wanted to jump on the bandwagon and celebrate with my friend, Kristi Chestnut!

She's one of the first blogging friends I made three years ago. (I can't believe it's been that long.) She's been through a lot on her writing journey, but she announced this month that she has signed with an agent and she's a really great one, Bree Odgen at D4E0 Literary Agency. I'm so excited for her.

She's having a contest to celebrate, so check it out. Go and say congrats on her blog.

Congrats, Kristi! You rock the world!

The Hobbit

I've got tickets already purchased for a Saturday matinee showing of Part I. I'm excited to have a date with sweet hubby. I'm excited to have a babysitter lined up. I'm excited to spend some time with friends before they move to Arizona. It should be good.

I remember reading the book as a kid. My dad had a copy on the bookshelf, along with the Lord of the Rings. It was the thickest book I had picked up at that point. And it was great! I skipped almost all of the stuff about Aragorn when I read Lord of the Rings, but read every word of Hobbit. I hope the movie lives up to the story.

What about you? Have you read it? Going to see the movie?
