My 100th Post!


I can't believe I am writing my 100th post! That's insane to me for many reasons, but in some ways I feel like this is only my 100th and in other ways I can't believe I have written this much. I have always been a writer, but for so many years I didn't write a word. I had heard about blogging, but I always thought who would read a blog if I wrote it and if people found out it was me they would know about my whole life and I don't know if I like that. So I started reading all of your blogs and found people that I had so much in common with. I was so surprised to see how many Lilly Lovers, preps, southern girls, beach lovers, shoppers, readers, and pink and green lovers, that there were out there and how much we had in common! All of my life I have looked for people that love all the same things I do and bam here you all are. So I stopped worrying about being judged and people knowing who I am and I took the plunge. I am soooooo glad I did. Blogging has become one of my most favorite activities and I can't believe how lost I was the last month not blogging and not being able to read your posts. All of my fears and doubts were completely wrong (as usual) and people actually read my blog! I have met so many cool people on here and feel like I have so many new friends! Who knew that was gonna happen! So in honor of my 100th post, I am going to tell ya'll the best things I have discovered through blogging.

One thing I discovered that I instantly fell in Love with were all the "Keep Calm" signs (like the one above)  I have found and similar ones. I LOVE them and want to find a way to frame all the ones I
love. Here are some favs:






I met my pen pal Katelyn whose blog Elephant Ears I just adore. Cait of Fit, Fierce, and Fabulous had the greatest idea to hook up people that wanted real life pen pals. She couldn't have paired us up better! I have so enjoyed getting to know Katelyn and love getting a real letter in the mail! I really got into blogging when I took part in Cait's 30 day blog challenge. It was lots of fun and I took part to challenge myself to actually post 30 days in a row. Loved it and here I am 70 posts later!

I discovered link ups which I LOVE taking part in and reading everyone's else links too. Some of my favorites are:






To name just a few. I love this because they always give me a topic for the day, but they have also allowed me to find other bloggers with the same interest as me.

Giveaways are one of my favorite discoveries! I have been lucky enough to host 1 so far (hopefully another one soon, my budget just looks pretty grim lately) and win one! Who knew you could actually win really cool things? I entered one the other day for a Kate Spade bracelet, which I sadly lost, and College Prepster is hosting a great giveawy for a pair of Jack Rogers! To enter this amazing on just check out College Prepster here! I really don't want to tell you about it because I want to win this one bad! But that wouldn't be very nice of me!!!



I could go on and on and on, but you all know the amazing things about blogging. I love it so much and am so glad I have found you guys and all of my favorite blogs. Thanks for reading and becoming followers! I finally reached 100 and that really made my day. I love discovering new blogs and "meeting" new people on here.

Here's too 100 more!!!

xoxo,
Sara
