100 Posts & 100 Random Facts About Me

Today I've hit my first blog milestone with 100 posts! When I first started my blog about 9 months ago, I wasn't sure that I could keep it going.  I wanted to have relevant things to say, and I wanted to bless others through what the Lord had given me to write.  At first, I didn't know if anyone was reading, but I stayed faithful. And here I am now, with 100 posts under my belt and soon to celebrate my One Year Blogiversary!  Oh, I will have some fun stuff planned for that!
