happy birthday to [tbnt]!

first of all, I want to reach out to every single one of you who commented on my sappy post yesterday and give you each a big giant bear hug. and a high five. and a beer. thank you so, so, SO much for your kind and encouraging words. it's amazing how you can make such wonderful and thoughtful friends through your own little corner of the web. 


and speaking of blogging, guess what today is, folks? 

aka The Bear Naked Truth's 1st birthday.


I know, I know, I can't believe it either. I wrote my itty bitty introductory first post one year ago today. it's been such a fun year sharing my life (sometimes, a little TOO much) with you guys. also, including this post, I've written 305 posts in one year. that's almost one post a day! apparently, I either have way too much time on my hands, or 
I really, really, really like you all. 

you guys have stuck it out with me... 
while I obsessed about my wedding photos through a little series called Wedding Wednesday
as I struggled with the decision to go back to school
and encouraged me when I let go of a friendship
congratulated me when I quit smoking for good (it's been 3 months, holla!), 
through all my dreaming of good lookin' homes & cool shit on etsy
while I picked up photography as a new hobby and learned to LOVE the shit out of it
when I made the decision to start trying for a family,
and comforted me through my sad days
and participated in my first (and only, to date) giveaway
and all kinds of other random posts.

I wish I could do something incredibly special today to thank you all for sticking with me, like a giveaway or something, but I'm lame. and broke. 

I honestly feel such a connection with my blogging friends, and I'm so thankful to have this outlet to turn to and people to confide in. 

since I can't actually give you anything, I'm just shouting a big ol 
from the mountain tops, and passing along a virtual birthday cupcake to each and every one of you. so take a bite (or gobble the whole thing), and pat yourselves on the back for being awesome. 


happy birthday, little blog.


  1. Happy 1 year! That's awesome!

  2. Happy Blog Birthday! I never new the story behind Bear - you are a special mommy for taking such good care of him!


I love getting comments from readers, so thank you for being so awesome!
