Thanks to one of my bloggy friends who is nearing her own Blogaversary, I checked, and sure enough, today is my my Five Year Blogaversary. I have come a long long loooonnnggg way since September 8, 2006. I started out writing Fabgrandma on Blogspot, because my son was stationed in England and had met and married a British woman. I wanted her to get to know our family before she moved to the US. What started out as just a family thing, has turned into my passion–writing about my life, my travels, my gluten free diet, my grandchildren.
I often describe my blog this way:
“Telling the world way too much about me whether they want to know it or not. I write about my life of living full time in an RV, eating a gluten free diet, things I do for fun, and things that are important to me. I make you look at photos of my grandchildren, talk about my husband’s survival of oral cancer, show you things I have made. You know you want to look”
My writing has improved quite a bit since that very first post back in 2006. FabGrandpa and I have lived in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Alabama, and Arizona since then, working our way across the country at privately owned campgrounds, state parks, national parks, and forest service campgrounds. I found out I have to eat a gluten free diet. One of my lifetime dreams came true, I gained a daughter-in-law, a son-in-law, two grandchildren,and a almost son-in-law. I have learned a lot about myself, and learned how to sew in an invisible zipper. I even went turkey hunting! But the post I made that consistently gets the most views is all about buying bras. Go figure.
