My 100th Blog Posting and 100 Favorite Things!

Here I am, just over four months and 100 entries into blogging, and it feels great. I promised myself I’d try it for six months to see if blogging and I are compatible, and though there are two months of this trial-run to go, it seems we are.

For this entry, I’m listing 100 of some of my favorite things. (In compiling this list, it became clear that I have WAY more than 100 favorite things!) Heck, Oprah has her favorite things. Rachael Ray does too. Why not a relatively unknown, largely unread blogger? We have our favorite things too!
