Two Years! Woo!

Holy Moly!  I was sitting here thinking “hmm, I know I missed the 1 year anniversary of LivingWithPurple, but I wonder when the 2 year anniversary is? I should have a post for it!” So I went and looked, and it turns out that…

LivingWithPurple is two years old TODAY!  (On WordPress, anyway.)

Happy birthday to my blog,  happy birthday to my blog, happy birthday dear bloggy-blog, happy birthday to you!

And to help celebrate, I give you: a cat on a hat!

Thanks for reading!
