Ten years ago, on September 6, 2006, I decided to start a little blog. At the time, my son was in the Air Force, stationed in England; my oldest daughter was living in Norfolk, Virginia; and my other two daughters were in Georgia. Fabgrandpa and I were living a nomad life. Our home was a 34 foot travel trailer. We worked at campgrounds and resorts, for whatever the season might be, then moved to a volunteer camp host job for the off season. It was a wonderful life.
You, my readers, followed us everywhere we went. From Gettysburg, Pennsylvania; to Urbanna, Virginia; to Helen, Georgia; to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. I wrote about all our travels, the places we went on our days off, the food we ate, things we did, our family. You followed along when I got sick and was in the hospital for over a month. I received so many pieces of mail that the volunteer who delivered it each day asked me “Who ARE you?” The fact that I got all that mail made me feel loved and so not alone. You were there when we bought our house, and through all the improvements and renovations that we made while making it our home.
To thank you all for staying with me, through thick and thin, through the good times and the bad, I am going to be hosting some giveaways just for my followers. If you follow me on Facebook, on Twitter, on Instagram, or on Pinterest, you will be able to enter the giveaways. I wish I could give each one of you a prize, because you have been such good fans. Thank you all so much, because without the readers, a blog is nothing. I appreciate you all for helping make my little place on the internet what it is today. Happy Birthday to Fabgrandma.com!
