Happy Birthday Blog!

That’s right, one year ago today brianandlaura.blogspot.com was born. It all began with Laura’s first post (and seven since for her…one post every 45 days…that’s actually a little higher than she might’ve predicted). In honor of the birthday, we thought it would be cool to roll out a new color scheme, but who has that sort of time? Some might suggest that a public school teacher with the summer off might have that sort of time.

Instead, I thought it’d be cool to sift through the archives and remember the year that was.
