I've hit my hundredth post.
This blog has done wonders for me and my outlook on life.
I wouldn't say i'm an overly positive person. i'm realistic. heres reality:
life is hard. true.
life is beautiful. even more true
life is full of belles and whistles to be grateful for, all we have to do is open our eyes and look for them, and we'll find the good everywhere. Thanks for checkin in and letting me share my favorite bits of life with you.
