So apparently this is my 50th post. That's a lot. I started this new blog in October of 2012. I'm so glad I did! It really has been a nice outlet for me. It occupies some time. Keeps my mind going. And I enjoy it. I don't claim to be a good writer, but I hope that you enjoy it, too!
In honor of this momentous occasion, I am going to compile a list of 50 things that I love or that I am thankful for.
