Happy Birthday, Braves Love!

Dear Readers,

Today is the one-year anniversary of Braves Love. I wanted to take a few minutes today to write a little note of appreciation to all of you. Nearly 80,000 individuals have visited the blog in the past year, and I’m grateful for each and every one of you – for your comments, for those who send in pictures and videos, for my “insiders” that I never would have met otherwise, and for the friendships we’ve all formed.

The internet is an interesting place. It brings together people from all cultures, countries, and social standings. We bond over our love of baseball (and specifically, the boys with tomahawks on their chests), and it’s been a truly enjoyable experience. Did you know that visitors from 93 countries have stopped by? Braves Love is EVERYWHERE!! :D

I’m glad you’re here. Thank you for making this blog fun to share, and I look forward to playing out the season hard and starting fresh in 2009.

Go Braves!

Love,
Lauren T.
