You never forget your first

This is the link to my very first post one year ago.

Hard to imagine I had so little to say, isn't it?

In fact, I had so little to say, that I would not make another post until six months later.

But isn't that the way with most firsts? You begin slowly, awkwardly, unsure of yourself.

You practice, get more experience, become more proficient, and suddenly you're not so bad.

Some may say you're actually pretty good.

First job, first kiss, first interview, first...uhem, well, you know, first time behind the wheel of a car, first taste of icecream.

Nothing imprints itself into your heart and mind quite like a first.

Thank goodness for firsts.

Mazal Tov on your bloggersary!!!

Irina Tsukerman said...

Happy Blogiversary! On my first... I rambled non-stop, despite having no idea what to say. That was a mistake. Here's to many more from you!

torontopearl said...

Thank goodness for your first -- and subsequent posts. This past year, you've taken us all on a great joyride, Cruisin' Mom. You've got that license to thrill.
Keep truckin'.

Interesting chronology... you had your first , ehem, before your first time behind the wheel? Precocious! :-)

cruisin-mom said...

jackt: crack me up!

kasamba: awwww, thanks :)

Irina: well, I'm glad you rambled, because each one of your posts is like a beautiful essay.

t.p.: one's ever accused me of taking them on a joyride before...!

trepp: Oh no, I didn't mean to make it sound that way...why of course, icecream came first. ;)

PsychoToddler said...

Wow. I can't believe it's been a year. Time flies when you're getting old. Mazel Tov!

(OK it flies for ME because I'M getting old, not CM...oh whatever!)

Jack's Shack said...

Wow, a year already. Mazal Tov. See you at the Bagel Nosh.

Wendy said...

Nice milestone. I've loved reading what you've written and look forward to more!


cruisin-mom said...

Pragmatician: well, it's not exactly a year...I didn't make another post for 6 months after the first one! Thanks for stopping by :)

P.T.: that's right, time flies when YOU'RE getting old.

Jack: How about Brent's instead?!

Wendy: you're so sweet. Feeling is most definitley mutual.

Mildred Garfield said...

Congratulation on your anniversary!!

You are alway fun to read and full of surprises.

You make the everyday happening fun like when you went to the doctor for an exam.

Finding humor in the everday is a talent and can be a lifesaver.

Keep looking on the sunnyside of the street.

Mazel Tov!

My first was a picture of my family. So was my 1001st. :)

cruisin-mom said...

Millie: thanks! so glad you stopped by...and you're right, without humor, I'd shrivel up.

Ezzie: thanks...can't wait to see what your 10001st brings :)

Jack's Shack said...

I love Brents.

socialworker/frustrated mom said...

kol haschalos kashos. See where you got now you are so popular. Nice to be here. Good to bring out the oldies but goodies.

Mia said...

Congratulations on your 1st and hope to many many more posts. Love reading you!!

cruisin-mom said...

Jack: me too!

swfm: not popular, some just like what I write...thanks so much.

Mia: thanks, look forward to hearing about the wedding.

socialworker/frustrated mom said...

Either way it is a compliment:).

Stacey said...

Has it REALLY been a year? Already!! Wow, seems like yesterday.

I remember reading you first on Seraphic. I was so glad when you finally started your own!

Congrats on a great year!

StepIma said...

Mazal Tov! You don't look a day older than 1 post :)

cruisin-mom said...

SWFM: you are sweet, thanks!

Stacey: I know it's hard to believe. Where does the time go? I think I first read you through Pearl...and still love to read the beautiful way you express yourself about everyday life (and food, of course!)

Stepima: why, thanks...that's the best compliment I've ever received :)

Like Stacey, I also first read you on Seraphic and instantly liked your style. When TorontoPearl wrote about you starting your own blog, I knew I had to check it out. Not only do you write enjoyable comments, your blog ROCKS!

S.T. Awww, well you know it's a mutual admiration society between you and I.
