I have been blogging for a little over a year now, and this is my 200th post. I really have been grateful for what it's brought to my life: a creative outlet, a place to remember, a place to share and a means of friendship. I love knowing that if Macauley does or says something I want to remember, I can easily put it down here instead of forgetting it. I love taking pictures of the places I go and putting them out there for people to see and for me to look back on. I love reading the blogs of women I know in real life and others I don't, and getting a peek into how other people make it through this big world every day. I am ready for a new look for my blog (though I'm not sure what exactly), so I think I'm going to take a few days off blogging and look around, and I'm going to have my first 200 posts printed into a book on blurb.com. Thanks to everyone who checks in on me here from time to time, and I hope you get as much out of blogging as I do.
