My hubby thinks I place too much value on perceived milestones.
For example, yesterday was the 18th anniversary of our first kiss. I think that's pretty significant. Let alone the fact that we were 18 and so that's half of our life ago, if we hadn't had that particular kiss we probably wouldn't have the life we have, or our beautiful children.
He still thinks I am a little more sentimental than necessary.
Last week I had a little milestone in my blog.
I wrote my 900th post on Friday (which was the anniversary of our first date 18 years ago, by the way).
900 is almost 3 times the length of an Austen novel. It's the longer than Game of Thrones.
I guess the number just made me take stock.
Anyway, I celebrated the fact that the temperature today was nearly in the 30s by having a little jaunt up to the Fifth Lamp to snap a shot.
I don't even remember the last time I went up there, but I need to get back into the habit.

The Youngest is teething and so she declined her usual 8:30 nap. 
She wasn't all that impressed with the alternative

Thanks for joining me for these past 900 posts, and I look forward to sharing many more with you.


  1. happy 900th post ~ wow, that's a lot !

  2. Wow that's a lot! You have a good memory. I've been with my hubby just as long but I couldn't tell you when the anniversary of our first kiss even is. He has a much better memory, he could only come up with the month. I could tell you our wedding anniversary, first date, engagement but first kiss...hmm Just saying that it must have been significant to remember 18 years later!
