200 Posts Giveaway


This is my 200th post! Wow. Can't believe it. I love having a blog, I love reading blogs. I admit I'm not as consistent as I'd like to be and I'd love to spend some time updating it! But, for now I do what I can! Lots of changes are in store for me - my job is ending June 30th - not by choice - victim of downsizing! I've turned 50! I have four wonderful kids (three grown)! I have a guy in my life who is pretty special. Sometimes I feel like I'm just beginning. I actually feel pretty positive about it! What do I do? Where do I go? Lots to think about. I just visited Laura at 52 Flea - one of my top 10 favorite and inspiring blogs. I signed up for an absolutely fantastic giveaway - a dream giveaway, and guess what? I won! Wow. I so needed this! Maybe it's the beginning of good things to come? Anyway, back to the 200 posts! I think it's time for me to have a giveaway as well. I'm thinking that I will need some time to collect a few things, so leave a comment on this post until May 5 (Cinco de Mayo), then I'll choose a winner at midnight! Thanks for stopping by! Jamie

Kudos on your 200th post! Sounds like spring is in your life for sure. Blogs are therapy for all us in so many ways. They have made me appreciate everyone's every day life. If anything I feel normal when I know that my blog friends struggle with the same thing. I was playing with the fabric pieces I won from you and thinking how a little blog and some fabric made so many connections. Pretty damn cool.
