Happy 100th Post to Me!

Happy 100th post to me!
This cupcake looks really gross but it's a 100th post celebration cupcake so it's gonna have to do. 
This cupcake looks really pretty but I found it on a health food website so it probably taste like cardboard

So let's imagine we're eating this instead. Because, lets be honest, this is the best cake batter ever. (Yes I am still 7 and I like sprinkles on and in my cake).

When I started this blog, I never knew how "into it" I'd get but this has been such a positive experience! I've loved cataloging our lives and sharing it with you...the good, the bad, the funny, the mundane...all of it! I've always been an "open book." Certain events in my very public life have caused me to want to retreat and be much more private but at the end of the day, I enjoy "doing life" in community. 

I wish I had this blog when I went through cancer or when Parker was in the NICU. We truly witnessed the power of prayer, support and encouragement during that time which we walked through very publicly via facebook and email. I can't begin to imagine how many more prayers and stories of encouragement we would have received if I'd blogged then! On the flip side, we'd get a few extra crazies who share their dead relative/baby stories (seriously... this happened ALL OF THE TIME in the grocery store etc) but you commit to taking the good with the bad when you live your life publicly.

I know blogging is controversial and people are very quick to give their opinions on them (the majority without ever reading it!) ... so for the record.... I am pro blog! I've thoroughly enjoyed having an emotional outlet, a baby book, a scrapbook, a support group and a way to stay "in the loop" all in one. If you don't personally have a blog, try it... you may find you really enjoy documenting your thoughts, happenings, feelings etc. I bet we'll all really enjoy reading back through them when we're old!

Here's to 100 more blog posts!
