thought when i began this blog less than a year ago
that i would have any followers other than my girlfriend & my family
so it has been amazing that out in blogland there are others
who actually enjoy my ramblings, writing and musings. :)
so this saturday my blog follower number hit 100-

Congrats on 100 followers!

Wow, maybe if we all sat down and thought of 100 things we love we'd stop complaining! What a great idea and list. I'm going to make mine--wonder if I can come up with 100 positives? LOL

Shawn Becker said...

That was a great idea and I loved reading your 100 favorites!

Congratulations On #100!! Woo Hoo! I enjoy reading about my new friends in the blogosphere..good way to get to know you better.
Giveaways take too much work..I have entered several, only won once, and find it to be exhausting!

I love your list--I have a similar one, one that I haven't shared on my blog yet (although after your post I just might) a list of things to make my soul sing! Many of the things that bring me joy match yours.

Here's to appreciating the good and wonderful in our lives!
