Many moons ago, August 24, 2011 to be exact, I made my first entry to R&W.
Back then I was known as LMF or Little Miss Fun, until I realized how impractical that name was.
I started with zero followers and had no clue how to do this whole blogging thing.
It started as a place for a newly single 23 year old to vent all of her problems.
I'm not sure how, but I quickly gained followers and became part of the blogging world.
Eventually, my pointless ramblings turned into organized lists about different things I value.
I created fun recurring themes like the Jax Seal of Approval and Let's Play a Jax Game.
The point is: My blog has grown into something I'm real proud of.
...and, of course, I have all of you wonderful readers and followers to thank for that...
Ten thank yous in honor of Raviolis & Waterworks' fourth birthday!
Of course I need to do a fun list in honor of R&W's birthday.
