number 200

our little family

Wow--this is my 200th post here. It's funny to think I've had 200 things in my life in the past 2+ years that I felt were interesting enough to share! I was looking back at posts I wrote a year ago, just to see where I was this time in 2008. I had a lot going on--blueberry picking, sewing for a co-worker, screen printing--and I had no idea what excitement the next year had in store! Becoming a mother (still so weird to say!) has been an amazing, life-changing experience.

Anyway, I'm wanting to get back to the interesting bits of my life and to documenting them here. So I've made a few changes to the blog--new banner, a book list (still in progress), and adding typepad connect. I'm excited that typepad has made this commenting service available to blogger users, and can't wait to be able to have more of a dialogue with readers. We'll see how it goes!

So since this is number 200, I should have a little giveaway, right? Right. But can I ask you for something? I would love to find some new inspiration to look at/read. Is there a blog or website you've been enjoying, even your own? Please share it with me in the comments. It'll be a great trial run of typepad connect, and 3 lucky commenters will receive one of these items from my stash. Tell your friends--like I said, I'm looking for inspiration, and I'll randomly select winners next Weds., June 17.

And some good reads I've discovered recently:
amazing mae
katie did (thanks julie!)
making it lovely

OK, now I have to go watch So You Think You Can Dance!

It looks like I the typepad commenting still needs some work, so I'll just open back up the regular comments in the meantime.


  1. Congrats on 200! I've been enjoying

  4. love your new banner-- and kobe's spotlight!

  5. okay, I have to take credit for finding katie did. I told julie about it the moment I closed the laptop after hours of staring with my mouth hanging open. I've already copied her freezer-paper-little-girl-swinging t-shirt for afton. I'm glad you love the blog too! (and did you see the keds her daughters are getting??!)


Tell me what you think! I love to read comments.
