Special day



Nine years ago today I began this blog. I had no idea of all that was ahead of me. I had no idea the changes – all for the better – it would trigger in my marriage. I had no inkling of the friendships I’d make here. I had no idea how much I’d change.


Nick and I went from being pleasant roommates, to excited lover willing to experiment.

I went from having no one in the world to discuss my ‘weirdness’ with to having many close friends on several continents who understand me very well and share my desire to be spanked.

I was someone who rarely spoke up for herself at work, or other places. I kept things in and swallowed my anger. Through blogging – and ranting to you all when I needed to – I found my voice and I’m able to articulate pretty well when I needed to.

I went from someone who spent way too much time daydreaming with nothing to show for it. To someone who continues to spend way too much time daydreaming with six, soon to be seven book to show for it.

I’m happier, more courageous and more productive. I thank everyone who has ever come by to read, leave a comment, contributed a story to fantasy Friday, emailed me, encouraged me or who has taken time out of their real lives to travel to meet in person.

I love you guys!

This means next year with be a full decade - anyone up for an anniversary party?

Wow, PK! You should feel very proud today. What you wrote about how you have changed shows how empowering it is to have the courage to really be yourself. So many others have found their courage and happiness through you.
