It's Been a Year

It's been a year since the day Amber Essence Lights finished her 100 baby challenge. One year since all of my hard work came to an end, one year since the end of an era, and one year since I posted on this blog.
As you can imagine, there are quite a few emotions going through me right now, not to mention the fact that this is the first time I've even logged into my Blogger account in this past year. The first emotion would have to be disbelief. I can still remember the exact moment when I typed the last words of the post, hit publish, and then waited as all of your comments came in. How has it been a year since I laughed at naming the final baby Shangobunni and cried that Corbin was the father? How has it been almost two years since I created Amber and started this entire journey? How is it that I have made and lost so many friends in that time, and now I am back for yet another year?
My emotions.
Another feeling going through me is pride. Pride in the simple fact that I started this journey nearly two years ago, finished it exactly a year ago, and now here I am still continuing it? For almost blogging about these sims for two years, you can only imagine how much character development has gone into them, yet it was never an issue. Never once did I tire of speaking from Amber's POV because in all honesty, she was myself in sim form. In fact, a lot of the time, I miss her POV when I'm writing from Val's.
And finally, the last emotion going through me is just sheer happiness. It's been a hell of a journey, and one I know wouldn't have been possible without all of the support from each and every one of you. My gratitude can only be extended as far as the people who have been here from the start. All of you mean so much to me, to the end of the world and back, and I know Amber and myself couldn't have asked for a better bunch of goons to stick around since last year. I love you all, and I'll be speaking to you again on December 26th, the two year anniversary of Amber. T_T
