one hundredth post!

Apparently I’ve been at this blogging thing for a while now.

I can’t imagine how I found enough fodder for 100 posts already though.

Maybe it had something to do with graduating from college, getting real world jobs, and celebrating our first year of marriage… all in the same month. There might have been a thing or two about moving into my in-laws’ basement for another month plus a half, then subsequently moving out of the in-laws’ basement and buying our first house.

Or I suppose it could have been the renovating of our first house, the continuation of the renovation of our first house, or the perpetual renovating we are doing on our first house.

There’s probably something in there about creating a human being, too.


You can chalk it up to the first grade teacher in me, but I thought maybe we should commemorate this occasion with a little sharing exercise. This also functions as a half-birthday wish list, conveniently.

Just a thought.

    agreed: mmm, chai.

    53. I will happily give you all of mine.
    54. This one’s coming true!

    I don’t think you meant it this way, but I read all the entries with their number in front of them like “7 cuddles with Pearl”, “60 hours of sleep straight”. :)
