500 seems like a lot

Oh my-lanta.
This is my 500th post. Does that seem high to anyone else? I had enough to share 500 times?
WEIRD.
INTERESTING. [I hope. I try.]
CAT-FILLED.

I've now been blogging since June 3, 2009. WHAT THE WHAT?!?! Freals [still trying to make it happen, people], it doesn't feel like that at all. I've mentioned how much I love keeping this online journal and sharing my life with all you internet friends. In many ways, when I've felt lonely and been in transition YOU have been my people. I appreciate your kind words, calls, comments, suggestions, participation, texts, facebook messages, and encouragement more than I can even say.

Some of you have been around since waaaay before 2009, some around the same time this started, some of you I've picked up along the way, some have come and gone, some are random visitors, some of you lurk anonymously, and I'm sure for one or two of you this is your first time.
I LOVE YOU ALL. 
It's not even effort-filled love; it's easy fill-my-heart-with-sunshine love.

In honor of my 500th post I decided to show you 10 of my favorite posts in completely random order. There's also a little something special for you to try to win if you like snail mail. (-:

  1. I don't have a favorite...I'm just a nosy lurker. But, I liked the term "freals" and have tried using it. It's staying in my vocab, so my favorite is anything with freals in it. :)

  3. I'm with Megan. Hank posts are the best. It's like getting to hang out with him but without all the fur. And I know from living with him that he sheds a lot. That bee hat is still cruel. But I love you and so does Hank despite the hats.

  4. Hmmm... there are so many good ones... I like...
    etsy posts
    crafty/baking posts
    self-empowerment (I think you called it something else) day

    but my all time favorite ones are about your journey and the stuff that deepens your understanding or belief in your self!
    Love you!

  6. Oh, I'm a big time lurker...but I love when my blogger dashboard tells me there's a new nonsense post up! Photos are my fave - and just your general attitude (blogitude?) of life being a big bag o' fun.

    1. thanks, Dana! LIFE IS A BIG BAG O' FUN for the most part if you look for the good parts. not to say that there aren't crappy, I-have-nothing-positive-to-say moments, but today, July 26 at 8:24pm I can see mostly FUN!!

  7. I love your pictures :) Especially of the food, mmmmm. In general, I am often reminded of a Martha who went to computer camp instead of prison.

  10. I enjoy seeing what your up to, new crafts, photos of your journey through life. I know something new can be there for me to read or something that updates me on your life walk whether it's crafts, family, travel or goals.

  11. I love when you talk about embarrassing things that have happened to you. Do you even write about that? If you don't, you should :) I love you!!

  13. I like when you talk about the crazy.....your crazy, other peoples crazy, hanks crazy. It makes the rest of us not feel as crazy as we think. Oh and the crafts are all my hopes and dreams of projects that I will have very good intentions of doing but only a few will become. So it's nice to have someone else do it. oh Polly says hi :)

    1. crazy?

      HI, Polly you are cute and I want to steal you.

  16. Amy, I like reading about when you are brave about something... cooking, coffee, hank, style, relationships. I like it when you are brave. (and I haven't even seen that movie yet!)

    1. Thanks, Kathy. I don't feel brave very often. I have lots to say on fear and not so much on bravery. However, I'm trying.

      I want to see that movie too!

      xoxo

  17. I love reading pretty much anything you write....mostly because I love you and I can hear you saying it in my brain. :) I really appreciate how real you are. I often think "SERIOUSLY" when I read your blog....granted, the punctuation could be a ! or a ?, but no matter what it is, it means you're awesome. :) Love you!
