Milestones (Part the Third): 400 Posts

Good Morning Humble Readers...

It's been just over two years since I wrote my first post on this blog. 

At that time, I had no idea about the ALI community.  I had no followers.  I hadn't connected with anyone in the blogosphere.  It was a week after my first miscarriage and I just needed a space to pour out the grief and pain I was feeling. 

I wrote a couple of posts at that time, and then let my little hobbit-hole languish for two or three months, until I found myself in exactly the same place... dealing with the grief of another miscarriage.  A friend from the ttc message board I frequented encouraged me to go back to my blog... to write, to connect, to tell my story.  So I did... and am I ever glad.

In this 'place' I have found hope, courage, friendship, support, tears, and laughter.  I hope that I have offered the same. 

It seems fitting to me that I am hitting this particular milestone now, just a couple of days before we will meet this long awaited, immensely longed for an prayed for Halfling.

Each of these 400 posts represents a step on this road... whether it's been a cycle update, rant, show & tell, meme, ICLW intro, recipe, or just some random ramblings. 

This journey doesn't end with the arrival of our precious Halfling, but it is a very important place on this road.  Who knows where the next 100, 400, or even 1000 posts will lead? 

All that is certain is that I know that I am not journeying alone.  And for that, and for all of you, I am incredibly thankful!


  1. Happy 400th post!

    Wishing you lots of wonderfulness for your upcoming birth! :) Can't wait to find out if it's a girl or a boy. I've always contemplated not finding out if I ever get pregnant so it's very exciting to me that you wanted to be surprised.

  2. I'm so glad I found your hobbit hole and am getting to make this journey with you.

  3. Happy 400!!
    And we are thankful for you too!

  4. Happy 400th post - that is a milestone and at an appropriate time was well. So glad to have found you in your neck o' the woods!

  5. It is rather serendipitous! Congrats. 2 days!

  6. Congrats and thank you for your support and encouragement - perhaps one day I will meet with a milestone of my own.

  7. happy 400th post! And I am thinking of you and praying for you as your time comes to meet the halfling. all my love!


Hobbits are social creatures, and love hearing from friends old and new. Pull up a comfy chair and let's get to know one another.
