Happy Blogiversary!

One year ago today I ventured into the blog world and my life was forever changed. Okay, not really but I felt I needed a consequential statement for the beginning of this post. It is a semi-important day after all.
What a wonderful year we had! I started this blog to make sharing pictures of our mundane yet happy life easier with our family. It was a great surprise to meet so many new blog friends and share our adoption journey and child-raising misadventures with them. I love getting comments and visiting other blogs and it's so special when I get to connect with a friend in person! (Although I do feel a bit starstruck sometimes when this happens - as though they're celebrities and not a neighbor from across town! :))
So, to highlight the best moments of the year I'm posting one favorite picture from each of the the past twelve months. Enjoy the year in review!

My first post on June 30th, 2008 only contained video clips so click here to see Isabelle's blog debut. Funnily enough the post is all about Isabelle's dancing. I guess some things haven't changed.
