1000th post

This is my 1000th post.  Holy mackerel.  1000?  Really?  What on Earth could I have possibly written 1000 posts about? 

Lets see:

In the beginning I posted about...well...weddings...and we started planning our wedding (in secret since we weren't engaged yet...which seems very silly now).  Then we were properly, officially, and beautifully engaged.  I also wrote a little bit about being a third year medical student.  Then about being a traveling 4th year medical student as my studies took me to Seattle, Philadelphia, Providence, Massachusetts and New York...and how I was planning our wedding along the way.  It was a fabulous run!

Then we married...and rejoiced...and danced and sang...and ate cake and I twirled.  We ran out into the sunset completely blissed out.

I (finally) graduated from podiatric medical school...(wahoo foot and ankle doctor status)!  My husband and I packed up and moved to upstate New York for my surgical residency.

 A couple months later we found out that we were going to become parents.  Pregnancy and my intern year was both thrilling and terrifying...and I survived both, thanks to the grace of God.

Clara joined us in March 2011...and from that moment on, nothing has been the same.  I can't even remember what it was like before she graced us with her smile.

Thank you for sharing in my journey.  It hasn't been an easy ride...there are lots of stumbles and grumbles along the way... but it's the road I would gladly take again.  1000 posts and three years later, your presence and friendship brightens my day...inspires me...and helps get me through!  I think I need some cupcakes tonight to celebrate!
