One Thousand Posts

I feel like this post should have something to do with Arabian Nights... or maybe that's just my word association!

It's really hard to believe that I've been keeping this blog for a little over 7 years now.  Hard to believe that I've had enough to say to fill up 1000 posts.  I never could have imagined all the things that have happened in the past 7 1/2 years of married life!

From babies to travel, everything (for the most part) has been chronicled here.  I laid out, right from the beginning, the reason I was blogging and even when I discovered everyone else out in the blogosphere and now social media I think and hope I've stayed true to myself.  Not that I haven't learned a few things along the way!  I love sharing with 5 Minute Fridays and getting to read tons of new books for free is always nice!

But first and foremost this has been my online scrapbook.  I never knew it would be so important as I haven't had time to really scrapbook in over a year and I will never be able to remember all the things I want to without it.

It's funny because in light of the news that Google is doing away with their Reader on June 1st, I have also realized the friends that I've made through this blog.  So far only a very few have I met in person, but they are some of the most challenging and encouraging friends, sometimes even if they barely know I exist.  Getting to know someone through their blog, it allows them to speak into your own life too.

I'm thankful for blogging and I never imagined how THIS blog would change my life!

Here's to the next one thousand posts!


  1. congrats!!


  2. Congratulations! I just crossed 2,000 posts a few days ago. I didn't think I'd come this far (or I'd be addicted to blogging, like this!) but one of the best perks is 'meeting' lovely people like you!
