One Thousand Posts.

When logging into my blogger dashboard this morning I saw there were 999 posts published. That means this post is number one thousand. One thousand! That's a lot, right? I'm very thankful to have this record from the past seven years. So many things have happened in that time. I love looking back and seeing pictures of my kids and reading parenting thoughts that were swirling in my head at the time. I like seeing the things that were inspiring me and the projects I made. Our family has grown, we've moved, we've had challenges and happy times. Thank you for being a part of the past thousand posts. Whether you've been around from sometime in the beginning or are new today. I appreciate you for reading and commenting and for being an addition to this space. No doubt, the very best part of blogging is connecting with you. I have met some of my most dear friends because I was feeling brave (and curious!) seven years ago.  I'm looking forward to sharing the next thousand posts with you. Thank you for reading and for always being so very kind. xoxo
