Post Number 500

I started my blog on October 26, 2008.  And I couldn’t be happier.  I love being able to share our lives with friends and family all over the place.

In honor of almost 2 years of blogging, I thought I would go through a list of all the things that have happened since I started my blog.

William made cookies.  And French toast.  Lots of French toast.  William makes better French toast than I do. And he usually offers to make some for everyone.

I posted my December Daily pages throughout the month of December in 2008 and 2009.  {And I’ve started planning for my 2010 December Daily.}

Bryan and I have watched 32 (give or take) Chicago Bears regular season Football games.

I have taken LOTS of photos of butterflies over the last 2 years.  I love butterflies and the butterflies LOVE to hang out in the zinnias.  

I have taken over 20,000 photos.

My husband has gotten more and more irritated with my photography habit.  But he never really gets mad.

I hope you enjoyed taking this look back over the last two years with me. I know I skipped about 20,000 things that have also happened.  Like celebrating Christmas, taking a bazillion photos over Thanksgiving, etc.  I really had fun going back and trying to figure out how many things I have posted about over the last 2 years.  I can’t believe how many things have happened in our life since I started blogging.  And I can’t believe how many MORE things are going to happen this year too! I am also totally looking forward to having family come visit this weekend!   Happy Monday!
