Making Progress on my 101 in 1001 list

I'm so ecstatic!

I have been making progress on my 101 in 1001 list for the Day Zero project.  I have completed quite a few items that I haven't had time to create posts about yet, but I am working on it.

But, today's post is about two items that are on my list.

The first is my Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith.  I could not be happier to have this book in my possession.  As a matter of fact, I did not just get the one {1} book, but I got a total of five {5} books like this, and they are all by her.

The photo above shows the box set of three {3} of the books that I bought.

In addition to the books, I also bought a piggy bank a couple of days ago.  I took the time tonight to get all of the tape and paper off of it so that I could start putting some change in it.  I hope that I will be able to fill my piggy bank up several times during the course of my 1001 days I am on this journey.

Well, that is all for now my lovelies!

Thank you all for following and/or reading my blog!

I'm back!

I'm officially back to my blog.

I cannot promise that I will write a new post everyday, or even every week, for that matter, but I am back, and I will start writing again!

I took a leave of absence from my blog back in September of 2011.  I did not want to leave my blog, but I knew it was the best thing for me to do at that time in my life.

I was in a very depressing state (which was made worse by some things that were said/done by others), and I did not know where I needed to go or what I needed to do with my life, but I am so much better now.  My faith in God has been affirmed, and I now have a much clearer picture of my life and the path I must take in it.

Many things have happened since September of 2011.  I celebrated my 25th birthday on October 6th, 2011.  Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's were a blast with my family.  I started working out again (I am determined to finish losing the weight I need to lose - while I have not saw much of a result on the scale, my clothes are fitting looser & I did have to buy smaller shirts and jeans when I went shopping)!  I am still taking online classes toward my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, and they are going great, as of right now!

And to finish this post, I would like to say thank you to all my followers/readers.  While I did not write a single blog post between the last one in September 2011 and today, I still had many readers each month.  I was amazed when I logged in and saw that I still had several people reading my posts, even though I had nothing new on my blog for several months.

Thank you all so very much for your continued support and for reading and commenting on my blog posts!
