Happy Birthday, Blog!

Well, how exciting is this?! Today is my Blogiversary!

One year ago today, I sat down and created this blog. Since then it has become an obsessive project for me, but I love having something I feel proud of. I guess you could say The Daily Tribal has become my "baby."

Speaking of babies... I thought this would be a sad day for me, since I created this blog the same day that my husband and I decided to have a baby; meaning that today I am one year into trying to conceive.

Surprisingly, I am not all that upset. For one thing, the *trying* part is actually quite fun (hardy har har), the longer it takes to get pregnant the more money we save, and we're slowly paying down some credit card debt that might take a bit longer if we were to factor in child care and all other things baby related.

About two weeks ago, I noticed that this has become more than a baby blog for me. It has slowly evolved into a safehaven for my thoughts and all my crazy musings... and it feels great to be able to share them with others.

So, without launching into a nostalgic mush-fest of epic proportions, I'd like to say: Happy Birthday, blog! And what's a birthday without a sexy cupcake?!
