My 500th Post! (Plus a Giveaway!)

This is my 500th post! I'm a little shocked to have come this far, but so grateful for everyone who has followed along on this little blogging journey. It all started about four and a half years ago with a trip to Iceland, and since then, I'm excited to have covered a number of other trips, big and small. (Check out that link! I'm not done, but I've very slowly started to get my travels page in order to make it easier to follow each of the trips.) I'm also really excited about my Writer Wednesday feature, where I've had the great pleasure to interview writers from all walks of life. I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported me over in this little corner of the internet. I love you guys.

To celebrate and really thank you, I'm giving away postcards to anyone who asks! Last time I did this (to celebrate the blog's 1-year anniversary, way back in 2011 when I was in France for New Year's), I sent out ones I'd made using my header image. This time, I'm taking the opportunity to share my postcard collection with the world. I've been collecting them for years, so you may get one from Colonial Williamsburg (1996) or Hawaii (2004) or any other trip I've taken in my 28 years. Just leave me your name and address, and I'll put one in the mail for you straight away! (And, if you wanted to share a picture of you with your card when you get it, I wouldn't hate that. I wouldn't hate it much at all.)


  1. Kristin- Congrats! 500 is so many posts! I had forgotten you went to Iceland- we just booked tickets to Copenhagen and Reykjavik for new years'- I will pepper you with questions after scouring the archives :)

    1. I've always wanted to go to Copenhagen! I hope you guys have an amazing time. Reykjavik in winter was spectacular - pepper me all you can with questions! I definitely welcome them. One thing I will say is that if you have time and the means to get up north to the fjords, you absolutely should. We ended up skipping them and I really regret it.
