**WARNING — Photo Overload**
I opened up WordPress, only to see that I had 99 posts.
So, this post makes #100.
This is my HUNDREDTH post! WOW. . .time flies when you’re having fun!
Seems like just yesterday I was at 40. I do have to admit, I have posted a LOT more in the past few months, compared to when I started.
My first post was on December 4, 2007, so it didn’t even take me a year to get to the hundredth post. The first post was just a little hello to everyone. My second post was all about my photography blog, which is also on WordPress. Then I posted some anniversary pictures taken by Alisha. Then all about a few of my favorite things.
After those posts, which were all on December 4, 2007, I didn’t post again until February 7, 2008. So, I neglected the blog for a little while and then came back and made a lot of progress from there.
I can say that I definitely plan on posting a lot more about a lot more interesting things from here on out. If you have any requests, I’m game for that too!
For my 100th post, I’ll do something a little different.
You know, kind of like I’m winning an Emmy or an Oscar. . .and I’ll give my “Thank You” speech.
haha Lame? . . . Maybe. But HEY, I’m gonna do what I wanna do – It’s MY blog and I’ll cry if I want to! Of course, because I LOVE pictures, I’m going to include LOTS. . .all from various years!!!
So, first and foremost, I want to thank my awesome husband for all that he has done and all that he does for me. Sure, we have our moments, just like every couple in the world does, but I happen to think that ours are a lot less than some, and ours usually don’t last that long either. We’re fast compromisers. ha He is a good guy all around and treats me well. There are times when he is being a real bugger, but the good always makes up for those bad times. So, HONEY, thank you for being you and I LOVE YOU! 🙂
I feel I have to include Elvis and Jesse here too, since they’re included in our little “family.” They definitely put a smile on my face, EACH AND EVERY day. Especially on weekdays when I come home from work and they’re waiting for me RIGHT by the door! What a LOVELY sight to come home to every day!
Ric and I and our little “family.” Elvis and Jesse. This was one of our Engagement Pictures.
Next, to my awesome parents. They’re the best parents that any child could ask for, REALLY! One of my fears is becoming a parent, and one of the main reasons is because I don’t think I could ever be such an AWESOME parent as the ones God gave me. They were caring, loving, giving, always VERY supportive, they never argued, etc., etc., etc. How can someone compare to that? I don’t know that I can. I’m scared. I just know that when I was given them as my parents, I was truly and honestly blessed! I LOVE YOU MOM & DAD!!
To my in-laws. First my Mom-in-Law and my Dad-in-Law. You guys are awesome. I don’t know how I got so lucky when I was given you as my parent-in-laws either. I mean, what other family would have welcomed me into their family as you did?! I honestly feel like I have known each and every one of you my whole life, and honestly feel so comfortable around you guys!!! My Sister and Brother-in-Laws are awesome also. Again, I got lucky!!! I LOVE YOU Mom S. and Dad S.!
I just LOVE this picture. It is my awesome parents who raised me from the day I was born and my awesome parent-in-laws who took me in as I was one of them.
My extended family. You guys rock too!!! 🙂
(I couldn’t put everyone on here. . .there are way too many of you. Plus I couldn’t find many pictures of the Jacoby side. :()
Especially you Grandma. You’re definitely an inspiration in my life. I hope I can live to be just like you. . .nearly 90-years-old and still going strong and as happy as always!
My most favorite Aunt, Corrie!!! Her and Uncle Mark have given me SO much. They let me live with them when I was going to Meramec, back in 1997 and 1998. Then they threw the most AWESOMEST couples shower for Ric and I!!!
My awesome friends. Past AND Present. I have so many close friends, a few BFFs, and just some awesome people in my life. I am truly and honestly blessed!!!!
My very BEST friend – Colleen!!!! I don’t think I’m closer to anyone but her.
Peter. He is like a brother to me!! Even though he is moving to Germany in a few months. . .we’ll never forget him. We can’t wait until the three years is up and we are HOPEFUL that he will be back in IL (rather than sent to another base) when his three years is up.
I’m sure I’m forgetting SOMEONE out there! I mean. . .I have SOOO many wonderful people in my life. . .how could I NOT forget at least someone. (I’m forgetful. . .give me a break! haha). 🙂
