    Happy Anniversary!!!!!

    I’m so happy to be your IRL friend! It’s been so great reading your blog, hearing your story, and getting to know you and Michael. You continue to inspire me every day.

    Now can we just live close so I can meet up with you at the gym?!?!?!?

      I KNOW! You guys need to hurry up and move to Portland. And bring a case of that fudge sauce with you. šŸ˜‰

    Happy Blog Anniversary

    Aww Lisa what a great story! My one year blogging anniversary is coming up next week too… it is CRAZY to look back on the posts from a year ago and how bad mine were! I can’t believe anyone came to read. But just like anything else, you stick with it and it gets better.

    And really, the community aspect of blogging and the friends you make is definitely my favorite part. How else would we have “met” even if its only virtually? Having people who “get it” and understand what its like to go through a transformation like what we have gone through is priceless. I wouldn’t change a thing. šŸ™‚

      I had no idea you started blogging the same time I did. I thought you’d been doing it a long time. šŸ™‚

      We’ve both come a long way in one year.

  4. Bethany @Bridezilla Bakes

    Wow! I had no idea you only started a year ago — your writing is so polished, you have so much content, and you have such loyal readers! I figured it had been at least a couple of years šŸ™‚ Congrats! Love your blog, can’t wait for year 2!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Aw thanks Bethany! I’m glad my writing comes across as polished. When I read the first few posts I can really see the difference.

      Thank you for reading! I’ve been enjoying your comments.

    Lisa, I just assumed you had been around for much longer. You really hit the ground running (no pun intended, of course). Congrats!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Haha thanks Alan! I guess I DID have a lot to say. šŸ˜‰

    Congrats on the anniversary!

    Congratulations on the 1 year! I’m happy to have found your blog & get to know you through Twitter!
    I think a book is a great idea! I would read it for sure.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Thank you Steena. I’ve written bits and pieces of a book but haven’t seriously sat down to do it.

      Thanks! You are sweet! I’m glad that I can inspire people. Even if it’s just a few….

    Congratulations! I can’t believe you’ve only been blogging 1 year…I always thought it was much longer!

    Thanks for the shout out…I’m just now catching up on blogs, I’ve been out and about and away from the blogosphere for a few days!

      I know, it sounded like you were having a good weekend (minus the studying). šŸ™‚
