Double Takes celebrates its blog birthday this month. 5 years ago I started putting this puppy to press and never did I think it'd go this far or long. I have nothing but the deepest gratitude for all of my readers. Thank you for not only giving me a place to share the things I love, but sharing those things I love with me. It also happens to be my birthday today, although I have a few years more than the blog does. I'm taking the rest of the week off and celebrating with friends and family.
