Milestone: 100th Post

I've hit a milestone!  My 100th post.  So, in honor of that, I thought I'd try a blog hop today.  Although it is doubtful I'll grow my followers from 20 to 100 today, I'm aiming for a 50% increase so that I get to 30.  As always, I reciprocate and love commenting!

I've also decided to point you toward some of my favorite posts.

It's Raining, It's Pouring is my reaction to the news that a good friend had (yes, HAD -- now she has a lovely pair of C cups that I covet) breast cancer.  It's might not be as funny as some of my posts, but I think it one of my most revealing posts.  I still tear up over this post.

Sidewalk is one of my most wistful and bittersweet posts, also the post where I feel like I really hit my stride and started singing most clearly with my voice.  It is about my darling Violet.

Lessons is about my Milo.  It is also the moment when I started tagging my posts "Mom Lessons" when I realize I'm learning more than my kids.

Laughter is the Best Medicine might be the best window into my sense of humor and the relationship I have with my family.  It makes me giggle when I read it, so I hope you like it, too!

I love that Sidewalk post--I share so many of those feelings. Congrats on your 100th post too! I am really not up on the "lingo" yet (1st time hearing the word "blog hop!") I have really enjoyed reading your blogs.

I hope you enjoy what you read :)

I recently discovered your blog-good stuff! Happy 100th post!

Rhonda (a.k.a. The Restless Squaw) said...

Quick question for ya - Friday Follow really worked for you! Way to go! So what I'm wondering is this: did you spend a lot of time hitting a ton of other blogs to get all the follows back? I would love to have more time to visit more, but I'm constantly working and always feel guilty for breaking away from the typing that I should be doing.

Rhonda (a.k.a. The Restless Squaw) said...

Thank you so much. You really helped me!! I feel exaaaaccctly like you do about certain types (the ones you mentioned), and do exactly the same - check out the catchy titles first. I really needed that affirmation about the content. I think the blogosphere is very overwhelming; so much out there, everyone wanting to be published and thinking their stuff is good, etc., etc.

I appreciate your insights.
