100th Post

As a naurally creative and self driven person, this blog has been an amazing classroom.  With the last 100 posts I feel I have learned so much.  I’ve learned about web design and Photoshop.  I’ve learned how to better use my DSRL camera.  I’ve become more and more familiar with WordPress (I’m currently working on building a WordPress.org site for the future!).  I have loved learning how to use art programs on my iPad, and I love the personal touch they add to my blog.  It has been an adventure learning all the ins and outs of a technical world I knew nothing about when I started.  Learning how to translate my skills and aesthetic, into a space that I am proud to say represents me, has been a struggle and a gift.  A perfectionist, I often beat myself up over the quality of photos I am producing each week, or because I want more from my blog than I am able to immediately produce (web design & I still have a lot of learning to do). Slowly but surely this blog will one day be a full vision of what I’d like, but along the way I have learned am learning to be patient with myself, as I learn. (so much learning!)  And, I can honestly say I am proud when I look back at my posts, knowing how far my work on this blog has come since day one, when I used my phone camera to snap pictures for His & Her Whole Wheat Pizzas. I was clueless about so much, I was just jumping in head first for the experience.  This blog has become so much more to me then I could have realized 99 post ago.  It has brought me so much pleasure and happiness.  It has also challenged me. Changed me.  It has brought me to tears(what’s the point of doing this?!), and frustrated anger (that sick feeling in your stomach when everything you’ve worked so hard on has been erased…we’ve all been there).  It has taught me to have more faith in myself, and that I don’t give up, even when I want to, even on the days the work I did feel pointless. It has served as a tool in finding a genuine, and strong, sense of self.  What I have learned about myself is not seen so much in the content I share, but through the process it took to get it there.  If each post could be viewed as a lesson, as I learned something new with each one, than I can’t wait to see what the next 100 have to teach me, or what I might find out about myself.   Thank-you thank-you thank-you to my readers and everyone who has shown me so much support! It is so appreciated and necessary.  xo
