Welcome, new and old friends! Some of you (Cher) have been with me from the beginning of time. Some of you (Peggy) have just found me. Though some days I am more inspired than others, I am always happy to know that someone is reading and sharing life with me. I'd like to say thank you for taking the time to leave comments. Comments rock.
Today, I ask that you grab your favorite beverage, put on your party hat, sit back, and travel with me through some of my memorable posts. I know. I have a lot listed. I got carried away! Enjoy what you can. Reaching 100 posts is something to celebrate!
Since I started blogging in August, I have met some wonderful people. Face to face, through blogging, I've met Theresa, Cher, Renee and Margo. I've spoken with the Other Theresa on the phone. I had met Debbie before, but, we reconnected in blog land. Portia admitted to me that she lurks my blog daily, but she never comments.
Together, we have laughed at Junk Pumpkins. And then there was the Homely Coming Dance. And I shared small stuff and faith with you.
I introduced you to one of my business partners at Primitiques, Kathie. And then you got to meet Jeannie, at our open house. You've gotten to see Primitiques. And more. And even more.
You got to meet David (my love), who has a blog called Student of Life. Many of us refer to him as Snakelover. He has a talent for photography and I've enjoyed showing him off. I have shared a poem and my love. And again, more of my love.
The doors to my home swung wide open when I shared Floor Decor with you. And I tried to redeem myself with the finished product.
My friend, Mayron, told me I should blog. My mind flashed to myspace and facebook and my mouth said no. Putting everything out there wasn't for me. I was sure of it. Mayron told me to look at Theresa' blog and Debbie's blog. I looked. And guess what. I was sold! Thank you Mayron for being my mentor. And a big thanks to those of you who inspire me every day with your blogs, posts, comments, and words of kindness and encouragement. Thank You!
You are already a winner, let there be no doubt. But, if you'd like the opportunity to win a drawing for a prize, read on.
Yesterday (#99), I posted the giveaway info for the celebration of my 100th post. Some folks left comments on that post, and that's cool. I'll count it toward an opportunity. But, if you would, please leave a nice comment on today's 100th post.
Basically, with your comment today, you will be entered in a drawing for a great book, The House that Cleans Itself by Mindy Starns Clark. If you become a follower, you get another chance at winning. If you post about my giveaway (and tell me) you get another chance. If someone leaves a comment and tells me you sent them, YOU get another chance. Cool, huh?
So, happy 100th post to me! Thank you for being a part of the celebration and good luck!
ps. I am blown away by the amount of new folks commenting. I can't wait to sit in front of my computer for hours on end, to read about y'all! Please tell me, you are aware that I am loving this!! I can't wait for my next giveaway! haha This one ends Friday at midnight in Texas, by the way.
