Happy Birthday Daily Vacation!

Well, it's official - the Daily Vacation blog has made it a full year!  On August 17th, 2012, the blog made its debut with Daily Vacation (What Does It Mean?), and I have enjoyed writing post after post ever since.

The blog has changed a little since it first began.  The (still being developed) Local Destinations page popped up when I realized that vacationing at home would be a lot easier for readers if they were aware of all the great places to visit right in the area.  Then the Upcoming Events and New and Noteworthy pages appeared, because frankly, there is just so much going on around us to enjoy and take advantage of!
Recently, I decided that the blog by itself was just not enough and added the Daily Vacation Facebook Page.  I'm really loving this addition as it makes it easier to share the blog posts and to interact with readers.  Plus, I'm enjoying sharing my own personal Daily Vacations, and I LOVE hearing about other people's - way to inspire each other!
It's not always easy to keep up with the Daily Vacation mindset (or the blog for that matter), but often I go back to my very first post to see why I am doing all this in the first place.  I can definitely say that this year has been one of my most fun years ever.  I can look back on other years and pick out places I went and times I had that were fun, but this past year has been amazing almost everyday just by adding little things and paying attention to what there is to do right where we live!
I really want to thank the Daily Vacation readers, my guest bloggers, and all my supporters in this endeavor!  If no one bothered to read the blog, then we wouldn't have made it this far.  I really appreciate all the feedback I've gotten and especially the moments when I've had one of you tell me that something I wrote inspired you to start taking your own Daily Vacation!

So keep reading, liking, sharing, and I look forward to another year with you all!
