This is my 50th blog post. Holy. Moly. A lot has happened since I started Hello Field nearly a year ago:
- I left a safe and permanent job.
- JF bought me a blue Honda Fit named Tobias.
- We dumped all our money into a rickety old house in Elmvale.
- And most remarkably, we survived the most hellish winter ever.
What is totally absurd and wonderful is that friends, family and even a few randos from the internet (hi guys!) have read and cared about all of that stuff. Who knew I had even remotely interesting thoughts?
I started this blog to keep my lovely Toronto friends updated on our adventures in the boonies. That’s still 90% of its reason for existing.
But it’s also a weekly opportunity for me to zoom out, think macro about my life, and write about what’s taking up the most space in my head. Hitting publish is strangely therapeutic.
I guess the whole point of this post to thank you – for reading, reacting to and sometimes even commenting on my stories.
The adventure continues and, at least for now, I’ll continue writing about it in 200-word pieces.
