500th Post!

Um, wow. So this is my 500th post, people! Seems like only yesterday I was complaining about a steak I had ordered at a local restaurant! I started blogging when LO was 11 months old. She'll be 3 1/2 in January! Since then, she's had her 1st, 2nd and 3rd birthdays, I gave birth to the most wonderful little boy in the world, became a parent "expert" in HLHS, put my son through 2 heart surgeries and 1 heart cath, celebrated that amazing boy's 1st birthday, had 2 birthdays of my own and celebrated my 5th wedding anniversary with hubs! Not to mention all of the "regularly scheduled" holidays mixed in. All in all, it's been a crazy-busy-fun time and I'm so glad so many of you have been along for the ride!

I think one of my favorite things about blogging is the simple fact that I can go back in time and relive events that I've posted about on here. It's so much quicker and easier than an actual scrapbook or journal! Another favorite thing is all of the people I've "met" and become friends with, especially in the heart community. I'm so glad I have this outlet to share my thoughts, feelings, frustrations, joys and everything in between with people who truly care about my family and I, who reach out to support us even though many of whom have never even met me in real life! I cannot thank all of you enough for being with me over the past 2 1/2 years, encouraging me, laughing with me, getting angry at Toyota and Apple with me... the list goes on and on! It means so much to have the support and encouragement of people who truly understand the world we're living in and the joys and struggles we see each and every day.

Well it seems I don't have anything overly profound to share with this 500th post of mine. So I guess I'll just make the most of it by saying THANK YOU to my loyal readers and friends. Here's to 500 more!
