1,000 Blog Posts!

I realized today that I wrote my 1,000th blog post last week. What a milestone! I can hardly believe it, though I wrote my first post all the way back in October of 2005.

Since writing that first post, I really feel like I’ve grown in so many ways. Of course we grew as a family, but I also think I’ve grown as a person, a mom, a wife, a business owner, a crafter, and a writer. Thank you to all of you who have read the blog, for weeks or for years, and watched me grow, supported me, and hopefully laughed and learned a bit with me. Thanks for encouraging me to keep writing by following, reading and commenting!

I thought a good way to celebrate 1,000 posts would be to pick my favorite ten throughout the years. This was crazy difficult to narrow down! I hope you’ll enjoy reading these again,  and if you feel I should have included another, feel free to tell me in the comments.
