100th Post: The Evolution of a Blog

Wow, I can't believe it's been 100 posts already. This is actually quite an accomplishment for me. I have always tried to keep personal journals but never really succeeded. This is the best version of a personal journal I could ever want to keep. It's such a great feeling to get things down "on paper" at least virtually. The fact this is such a public forum is really a bonus as I have made new internet friends and received helpful advice and tips within the blogging community.

My blog has slowly evolved in to what it is today and will probably evolve again. As humans, we tend to do that. If you have found me recently, welcome. If you have been with me for a while, I'm glad to have kept your interest.

Currently I am consumed with personal finance, most specifically debt reduction and increasing our assets/net worth. Becoming debt free and living off a home business income is a goal my husband and I share. This also includes getting out of our condo and in to a house. Being "green" and how to reduce the presence of clutter and showcase hubby's collections.

I love crafts and sew, quilt, knit, and scrapbook. I also have interests in gardening, cooking, geocashing, biking, sailing and camping. Trying to find time for my hobbies is hard for me to do but I am getting better at it. More traveling, especially internationally as well as trying rock climbing and canoeing is in my future too! Hubby shares many of these interests with me which is truly a great thing.

Another longer term goal of ours is to move to a different part of the country that stays warmer more of the year (can you say the south east?) and build our dream house on a lake.

Some things about me you may find interesting.....

*I dated my hubby in highschool.
*I took private pilate lessons and have three hours of air time in a small plane.
*In high school I went to Washington DC to perform in the inauguration parade for the first President Bush.
*I have my nose pierced and one tattoo (can you guess where and of what?).
*My first car was a 1967 mustang my dad bought in1967.
*Last summer (07) I costumed and was an executive producer of an independent Zombie movie.
* A friend of mine won the National Spelling Bee when we were in the eighth grade.

To celebrate my 100th post I may do something crazy like change my layout or give something away. Not certain yet but stay tuned. For now I will leave you with a shot of my clematis that are just starting to bloom.
