400th Post


I am amazed to be writing my 400th post!

I feel like my blog has come so far in the last couple of years and I sit in awe of everything I have accomplished.

In 400 posts I have made some of the most incredible friends I could ever imagine.  I wont name names but I hope they know who they are.  We speak almost every day, discuss the highs, the lows and everything in between.  I love you all!

In 400 posts I wrote a book!  Who knew I had a book in me!?  It's amazing how we think our life is one thing then realize it is something completely different.  I am so proud every time someone tells me how something in my book inspired them or helped them through a situation.  Thank you to everyone who encouraged me and has purchased a copy!

In 400 posts I have ranted about everything under the sun from word verification to the don of the Scottish mafia.  I am sure the next 400 will bring even more absurd rants!

In 400 posts I have watched the Little Prince grow from a baby to a little boy.  I am so happy I kept a record of our life so he will be able to read it some day and know what his mommy thought about.

In 400 posts I have learned BBQ is not a verb, all y'all is a plural, tailgating is a team sport and koozies must go with every outfit.  I hope I have taught the correct usage of 'Eh!' and not all Canadians are lumberjacks and say aboot.

In 400 posts I started my own business and am having a blast creating personalized ribbon for some incredibly creative people!  Next stop, world domination.


In the blogishpere tradition I am going to offer myself up to questions from everyone!  So, go ahead, ask me anything!  I will do my best to answer.

Thank you all so very much for following along on my adventure - I know I havnt even begun to live my best so there will be lots of entertaining things to come!


Have a fabulous day!

Congratulations!!! I was pleased and shocked when I realized I had posted more than 100 times on my blog. I do have a question for you.
Do you plan ahead for things you are going to write about, or do you fly by the seat of your pants, as the saying goes. Just how much planning goes into each blog... estimated of course.
Thanks,
Cheryl

Congrats on 400 posts! I've been reading your blog for months now, and it was part of what inspired me to try out blogging myself!

My question for you is what tips do you have for new bloggers? I've only been at this about two months, and I'd love to hear any advice you have!

Have a fabulous week!

Congrats on the milestone of 400 posts - such a great accomplishment.

My question for you is related to your Scottish heritage. I am a fellow Scot, born in Glasgow and now living in Texas. What part of Scotland is your family from ? Do you ever make it back there ?

Congrats! So proud of all you have accomplished. You already have some good questions on the table, but my question is:

Do you set aside certain times of the day to interact on twitter, FB, and blogging? I am finding that it can eat into one's day around here.

Congratulations Miss Princess, that is a boatload of posts, to be sure. And in your case it is especially meaningful because you spend time crafting them, making each one very good, that's not easy.

Sending you a smile,

I stumbled upon your blog through Bringing Back Pretty! Congratulations on your 400th post and your book! I love what you wrote "In 400 posts I have learned BBQ is not a verb, all y'all is a plural, tailgating is a team sport and koozies must go with every outfit. I hope I have taught the correct usage of 'Eh!' and not all Canadians are lumberjacks and say aboot." And, I just want to say, I love Canadians, and I love when they say 'Eh! We have many Canadian friends, transfers to work at NASA. Our children play hockey together! It's wonderful!
