So amazing that I've been blogging, on and off, for over ten years. My first post in February of 2005 was written after returning home from Ukrainian Christmas in New York. My sister-in-law told me about this thing called "blogging." I also learned about YouTube on that trip. Oh dear. I think I must have been living under a rock. Naw, I was just mothering. Happily.
I had no idea where this little journal would take me. I certainly didn't expect to find so many wonderful friends through this medium. Many I have met, many I have exchanged happies with and many I correspond with to this day.
This blog gave me "my time," which I am eternally grateful. Rearing two teenage boys and watching as my mom regressed with dementia was a challenging time in my life. I am so happy that I made the time to write each one of these one thousand, five hundred and three entries.
I was going to print each page and bind them for the boys to have. I gave up on that pretty darn fast. ha. Perhaps there are two or three volumes printed and bound, somewhere. That's it. The only intention I had of this "Living as Rosa" blog was to have a journal, of some sort, for the boys. It turned out to so much more.
With all of that said, I must add a beautiful photo since photography was a whole other aspect of LAR. (And, yup, I'm kinda digging this app.)
Thank you to all who have followed and enjoyed this journey with me. Cheers to many more delightful years ahead.
