How many times in your life do you get to have a cake with the number 100 on it?

Whatever your answer is I’m going to have to imagine it’s not a lot. So how could I pass up the chance to have the number 100 on a cake just for me?

On February 5th, 2010 I posted my very first blog. It was an ode to the place I grew up and what it was like there. I was currently a newlywed living in Hawaii with my Sailor husband and trying to find something to occupy my spare time.

I used my blog as an outlet, a place to share various childhood experiences from growing up in the rural hills of northern California, and by “childhood experiences” I mean the slightly disturbing inflictions that have made me who I am today and built my slightly deranged yet totally loveable back woods country character.

Having grown up in California and moved to Hawaii my blog was an opportunity to share places and experiences with my friends and family who were unable to visit as often as we would have liked. My new husband and I spend many a weekends driving around the island and visiting places like the Valley of the Temples and the beautiful Byodo-In that was nestled at the base of it.

Then my husband and I conceived our first child and I was able to reach out to other bloggers and mothers to share fears and experiences, and was so happy to overcome my own birthing experience by sharing with it here.

100 posts later I am the mother of an 8.5 months old girl (SweetPea) and celebrated my two year wedding anniversary with my husband in September. We are back in rural Northern California and about to depart on the next chapter in our lives.

I would like to thank everyone who reads my words, whether it has been from the very beginning or just recently I appreciate all your time and support!

 

Here’s to another 100 posts!

I would like to start this weekend off with a big thank you to Earth Mama Angel Baby for so graciously supplying me with a bottle of Angel Baby Shampoo and Body Wash and being so kind as to include an extra bottle for me to giveaway to one lucky reader!

I would also like to thank everyone who entered in and helped to promote my giveaway with a special thanks to Linda over at Contest Girl and Blog Giveaways for helping get the word out!

After years of longing I finally splurged and bought myself a Nikon D5100 and I am LOVING it! Photography has always been one of my passions and I’m so excited to pursue it further with such a fancy new camera. (Note the Sunflower picture above)

This week I made Pumpkin Scones from a recipe I found over at Pure and Yummy and they turned out amazing! When I think of scones I think of a dry flavorless biscuits with a couple of freeze dried blueberries on top, but in the holiday spirit and with an oversupply of canned pumpkin I tried this recipe and was shocked at how incredibly moist and delectable these little guys turned out. I had no idea a scone could be so savory and delicious; This recipe is a MUST for your Autumn cooking arsenal or honestly for any time of the year.

And Finally I would like to Congratulate Shirley F. on Winning the Angel Baby Shampoo and Body Wash Giveaway!( You should have received an email from me already)

Look for a Nature’s Baby Organics Giveaway Coming Soon!

Have a wonderful Weekend Everybody!
