-1-This week marks the 7th Anniversary of 7 Quick Takes! I can't believe it's been that long. Or maybe I can. 7 Quick Takes has always been my favorite link-up (except that I will always maintain that 5 Quick Takes would be sufficient). I've been playing with the blog for the last couple weeks (do you see the updates!?), toying with the idea of coming back. When I saw Kelly's post I knew it was time.
-2-My first 7 Quick Takes post appeared June 14, 2013. I'm a little surprised I didn't do one before then.
-3-I have to say, looking back it's funny to see how much I have not changed over the past two years. I still am not a morning person. I still think yard sales start too early in the morning. I can always use sleep. And I may or may not be fudging the time stamp of this post.
-4-That being said a lot has changed since June 2013. Our family's grown since then. We have two little rambunctious boys instead of one. The Hubs is in full-blown dissertation writing and teaching mode. We've helped sell two houses (my grandmother's and mother-in-law's). We've traveled a lot (of the event-attending, conference-presenting, and family-visiting type) I feel that we are much more established.
-5-Number 5. We really should just have 5 Quick Takes.
My first 7 Quick Takes featured our next-door neighbor's chickens. These chickens became a somewhat reoccurring theme in my posts. Sadly one of the ladies next door has since passed on after being attacked by a dog. That makes posting the 6 chickens as Quick Take #6 less significant, or should I just consider it a tribute to our feathered friend?
-7-Well, that brings me back. I hope I can keep this up. I certainly don't consider myself a writer by any stretch, but it does me good to write. I hope some reader out there finds some entertainment or enjoyment in this blog.
Linking up with Kelly!
