Nelson County, Virginia
Five years ago today our first issue hit the stands here in Nelson County and the surrounding area. How things have changed in those 60 months! But one thing has remained the same, our love for Nelson County, and our gratitude to you our readers for the huge support over the past five years.
Since that first issue, lots has happened. Elections, droughts, businesses come and gone. This website has grown by leaps and bounds. Nearly 1000 of you a day check us out, and when the weather is bad or something else happens, that increases by as much as 8 times. And, our Facebook and Twitter sites are busier than ever! Over 800 of you follow us daily just on Facebook. You name it. It’s been a busy 5 years indeed!
Our permanent arrival in Nelson was 2004. Months later we took the magazine idea we had years ago as television news reporters, and launched it here. We haven’t a regret, and we haven’t looked back. What a welcome reception, and a wonderful place to live!
By far the biggest change in our lives was the arrival of Adam back in 2008. You’ve watched him grow up from nothing more than a little sprout! Rumor has it, on page 5, he may have company soon!
We can’t thank you enough for your continued support and friendship since we started the magazine back in 2005. What a journey!
We haven’t skipped a beat here on the website since it started, but in celebration of our 5 years, we are skipping a beat over the next day or so and the coming weekend. A break if you will! Not to worry, we’ll be nearby if something happens, but we are taking a day or two to reflect … and rest!
See you back here on Monday!
Enjoy the great weather and here’s to the next 5 years!
Thank you again!
Tommy, Yvette, & Adam
