Happy Bloggiversary to ME!

It has been one whole year since I first put fingers to keyboard and typed the story of our Mutomboko Festival. I had no idea what I would write about every day but I've been amazed at how many stories there are to share as well as what everyone finds interesting.

The first time I got a comment from someone I didn't know personally I did a little dance. How exciting! People, real people who didn't have to love me, enjoyed my stories. Who knew?!

It really does help that I live in a place where the unusual is fairly usual. Not many other people can say that their pet monkey stole their car keys out of the ignition. It's true! Yesterday Tom found his car keys on the gravel driveway by just happening upon them. We weren't even aware they were missing yet. We shudder to think what might have happened if Kanono had taken them far off into the trees or garden! 

I started out simply with the blog and am gradually getting bolder. There are still many things I need to learn. Any long-time bloggers out there that want to help me learn more--please let me know. I have questions!
SITS has been a big help over the past year. I learned from them how to make a three column layout and so many other tips.

Thank you all for reading and following the adventures. I love sharing my life with you! It makes me feel that I have a community supporting me. What a treasure!
