Two years of blogging

Two years ago, we had made the big move from a chiropractic education in Davenport, IA to a chiropractic career in Columbia, SC. Around that same time, my brother had discovered blogging and created a blog for us to use, learn from, and create an open line of communication. Our original blog was an experiment for us, dabbling with this or that, a little rambling here or there. It was "bonecrackers" -- created by Doug for us, not really knowing that "bonecracker" to a chiropractor is like "duffer" to a golfer. Then, to top things, our blog got linked to a very hostile anti-chiropractic website, although the only chiropractic thing about our blog was the fact that we are chiropractors.

So we saw this as an opportunity to grow, drop our old cluttered blog and start fresh. We came up with "serendipitous reflections" (no, it couldn't be "jenianddean" or something we could spell...) We have had so much fun in the past two years with the blog, learning how to put up pictures, showing off great meals and recipes, and even helping Nikki start her own blog.

Soon, Jeni will be doing a kitchen specific blog filled with great tips, recipes and advice (and maybe even an easy recipe for Nikki). Watch for this one soon ... We think you'll all enjoy it.

In the meantime, thanks to all the 12,219 unique visitors we have had since February 3, 2004.
