The Big 1-0-0!!!

All I can do is sit here and say WOW!  I made it to my 100th post.  While I actually started this blog in late 2013, I still consider myself a newbie first year blogger.  I was only hot and heavy at it for a couple of months before, well, life. 

Not only did my husband get a new job which had him away from home at the time, but I also became pregnant with our first little squish.  The combination of it all left me without any motivation, so I just set the blog aside and went about life.

The next year was rough.  Juggling a new born, and husband who was gone more than he was home, and working on top of it all.  It left me tired and depressed.  I had zero motivation to blog and actually turned it completely off for a few months after our baby announcement post.

Once I took care of myself, and the Mr was back home, the creativity flooded back into my system like the first rain after the summer dry spell.  I was excited for all the possibilities and projects at hand, so in January, I picked the blog back up again and virtually started over.

Now, here I am, 100 posts later.  This blog has become a part of my life.  It's funny how it really feels like a newborn baby.  The rollercoaster of excitement, tiredness, frustration, disappointment, and then feeling like maybe I have this blog-parenting thing.  And that's all in one day's work.  Then we get back up and do it all over again the next. 

So this 100th post is brought to you by my ramblings of life.  And to tell my loyal readers how thankful I am that you continue to check in on this little space of the internet.  Without your dedication, I wouldn't  have had the motivation to keep it up. 

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
