a milestone of sorts.

This is my 100th post. I guess that you would say that this is a milestone.

I'm actually surprised that I've reached my 100th post. Last summer I abandoned it, ignored it, and changed the subject whenever my dad brought it up. There's really only two reasons that I still have it.

Last summer I read Do Hard Things. Alex and Brett Harris mentioned a blog called Bloom. When I finished the book I looked up Bloom on their website and started reading. On one of the posts I saw a comment by someone named Paper Bird and Little Fairy. I clicked on the name and started reading their profile. I freaked out.

We were so alike! We listened to the same music, read the same books, did the same things. I wanted to tell them, but I didn't know them. That was the first blog that I ever read by someone that I didn't know.

I eventually commented on something, telling them who I was and everything. I felt like such a stalker at first. They commented back on one of my posts, I started following them, they started following me, and we talked all the time.

These girls are the only reason that I continued blogging. They were my first followers who wasn't my youth pastor or related to me. I wished so badly that I knew them.

I loved the concept of their blog from the very start. I'm really close to my sister Anna so the idea of sharing a blog with a sister was something that I loved.

I still love their blog to pieces. It's one of my favorites, and they're some of my favorite people that I don't know. Their comments and our conversations last year kept me blogging. Knowing that there was someone there who wanted to read what I wrote kept me writing.

Thank you so much girls! I love you both so much, in a non-creepy sister sort of way. I hope that someday I'll be able to meet you. I'm looking forward to it.


  1. aww! You made me misty eyed. I love you too, and one day we'll meet. It really means a lot to know that I had so much to do with keeping one of my favorite blogs up and running. I never thought our blog was that great, we don't have many followers and we're total dorks, but it means a lot to know you like it so much. In my opinion you're super mondo awesome. and that's the best thing a tell you.

  2. that was too sweet. thank you for the acknowledgement! and we hope to actual "see" you in the near future! maybe then, you'll know our real names!

    forever:), P B & J

  3. love you too! I pray for you both and I can't wait to meet you sometime :)


go ahead. make my day.
