We Just Reached a Milestone!

I’m taking a quick break from the marathon blogging month that involved the 31 days in January to make this announcement:

This is Post #100! Woot Woot!

I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am about that!

I lost quite a few months of blogging in 2011 because of some serious family and personal circumstances. Both my parents were hospitalized (my Dad was hospitalized twice), and we had an epic plumbing problem that seemingly refused to die (I’m talking a get-a-contractor-to-remove-the-front-porch; dig-up-the-front-yard-and-remove-the-sidewalk kind of plumbing problem).

2011 was the year I experienced a couple of things that I have since classified in the #epicfail department. The blog suffered as a result, but thankfully we were able to recover and press. on. I did a reset, and now, today, here we are celebrating our 100th post.

Woot Woot!


We have some changes in store as we move further into 2013. We’re going to add more bloggers and guest posters. If you’d like to submit an article or be featured on the blog, feel free to hit me up at ASwirlGirl@TheSwirlWorld.com. I read all my emails, and I promise to respond.

I’m having so much fun with these NaBloPoMo Challenges that I’m thinking of doing the month of February. It’s only 28 days, right???

(We’ll see).

What I do know is we’ll be back with more escapades from Gene-Leigh and Seth Wheeler. We also have something special coming up for Valentine’s Day – and an announcement to make in March!

Great times are ahead; not just for me, but for each of us. Let’s keep each other company along the way.
