un centesimo

In the words of the great Fred Wesley..."Gonna have a house party... Everyone say PARTY."



This is officially my 100th blog post. Woot! woot! I know this is much more exciting to me than the rest of you all (that's the plural form of "you", for you non-Marylanders).  It's a milestone for me. As someone who enjoys life in the low-key lane, celebrating any kind of milestone, in and of itself is a big deal.  When I turned 40, I declined a party, enjoying a nice dinner with a few friends and family at a favorite restaurant instead. (This was in sharp contrast to Countrymouse's all out 40th birthday bash for 60 people.) So when I sent the following to my peeps, it got their attention...

In all fairness, I need little reason to pop open some champagne and this seemed like a good midweek occasion. (Besides the fact that I'm pretty tickled with myself.)  I considered saving the celebration for my blog birthday blogiversary (I'm learning, I'm learning) in March but I thought just having a blog isn't the same as blogging.  Yeah, I've had some dry spells but that's just life and life is what I write about, so there ya have it. (Never mind that we'll probably open some champagne for that too!)


Some photographic highlights (shot with my new camera, but don't get your hopes up... I have a looong way to go).




It was a fun night.  If you're like me, you're quicker to dwell on your negatives than focus on an accomplishment. It's nice to shine a little around the people you love (and love you).  I probably need to do more of it and celebrate my family's milestones too, big and small. (And drink more champagne!)
