Happy Birthday to Tend a Rose!

It’s been two YEARS since I started this blog.

We’ve come a long way together, me and this blog. In a great many ways, it’s been exactly what I needed: a space for me to blurt out my own writing when I’m feeling creative; a way for me to share what I’m reading – the good and the bad; a way for me to keep track of my own thoughts; and maybe a way to help out my fellow lit lovers.

Whatever this blog is to you – whether you’re visiting for the first time or whether you’ve been one of my followers from the beginning – thanks for taking a moment to stop by, especially on today of all days.

And now, for an exciting, HUGE UPDATE:

Tend a Rose has moved! 

That’s right. To an official, bonafide url: tend-a-rose.com. Don’t worry; I have transferred all of the posts from this, the original, site to the new one, and have no immediate plans to remove this url, but all NEW content will be posted only on the new site.

Of course, if you have any feedback/anything you want to see more or less of or if you just want to say, leave a comment or contact me!

In honor of this special day, here’s a look at the top posts over the years on Tend a Rose:
