Yup....It Has Been Two Years

Today I am popping champagne and celebrating a new year, (early, I know). But today marks the two year anniversary of The Wine Key. (Happy Birthday!) They say as you get older, time starts to fly. Well if that is true, I'm starting to feel like I'm approaching 100 years old, and quickly. It feels like only a few months ago that I starting writing about wine. After two years, I honestly feel like I have said anything yet!

On this day, two years ago, I set out to write about a passion of mine with no expectations that anyone else would care to read about my wine experiences. As it turns out, I am fortunate enough to have developed relationships with loyal readers and met amazing co-conspirators that are just as crazy about wine as I am. This also being the week of Thanksgiving, I want to express my gratitude for both my loyal readers and everyone I have met along the way. Connecting to my "tribe" has been inspiring to say the least. I have found a thriving online community that shares a wealth of information each and every day about their wines experiences and it was an honor to have met many of you at The Wine Bloggers Conference this year.

As I celebrate this little milestone today, I am very focused on the future and excited about my plans to develop The Wine Key into much more than just a blog. Stay tuned for big announcements over the next few months. I find I am feeling similar to the Beaujolais Nouveau, which were released last Thursday; young, fresh, fruity, just a preview of what is to come. With additional aging and maturing, I hope to be celebrating even bigger achievements next year. (I apologize for the cheesy analogy but I'm clearly wrapped up in the moment - let me have it.)

So today, please join me is taking a moment to appreciate lives little accomplishments and cheers to new beginnings! Here is to finishing 2011 on a strong note and Happy Thanksgiving.
