In honor of our second birthday (we're 2 years old today!), we thought we'd take a moment to formally introduce ourselves. So ... hello! Thanks for reading! We feel like we know most of you from your comments, and you probably feel like you know most of us through our writing, but let's just get a bit more personal, shall we?
We've popped a bottle of champagne (it's cool if we're 2 and we're having a drink, right?), we're eating mini cupcakes with rainbow sprinkles, and we're ready to let you in behind the curtain here at The Stir. Lucky you.
The Stir is comprised of about 17 full-time writers and editors, and many, many awesome freelancers. We asked everyone on staff to share their inspirations, a shocking fact about their personal lives, and the hardest and/or most fun kind of post to write. We hope you like getting to know a little more about us, and be sure to help us celebrate by entering to win one of our many birthday giveaways. Yay!

My favorite post to write is one where I can weave in some funny fact about my husband into a post -- or base an entire post on something he’s done. He is a great dad and provides excellent fodder for blog posts.
Shocking fact? When I was in eighth grade, I was on the game show Double Dare. I won -- and got to go to Space Camp in Huntsville, AL. It was awesome.
Also, when I got married at 23, everyone and their mother said I was crazy. My first boss even tried to convince me not to get married. It's great proving all of those people wrong. When it's right, it's right. Whether you are 23 or 40!
