the world of the fireflies
has invaded my thoughts
(what a beautiful time!)
and a miniature heart
blossoms on my fingers.
~Federico Garcia Lorca
Today is my birthday. And it also marks my 5th year of blogging. 5 years!!! Can you believe it? I can't either. I still remember how I felt when I posted my first entry, that feeling of what am I getting myself into? and my excitement when I saw that after weeks of writing without a single reader, someone finally wrote the first comment.
So here's to my birthday and to my little blog. And here's to you, my dear readers. Thank you, thank you. This blog has changed my life in so many lovely ways and a lot of it has to do with all of you. Cheers! Kanpai!
