You see a small, private celebration here. Me, a few tools of the trade, and a cupcake from That Takes the Cake. A tradition. Cupcake. Candles. A pat on ones back.

I started blogging on Sequim Daily Photo five years ago today. That’s 1777 posts in case you’re counting.

I didn’t know the first thing about blogging when I started. I’ve missed some days. I’ve wondered why the heck I’m doing it. I’ve gotten to know some wonderful other bloggers and still mourn a couple who’ve passed away. I’ve taken a lot of pictures. But here I am. If nothing else, it’s a good excuse for a cupcake.
