My 1000th Consecutive Day of Posting!! The Benfield Blog: Sharing My Life

Hey everybody!

Today is my 1000th day of blogging!!!!!!!!!! (hey, when's the last time you did something for a thousand days in a row without taking a day off?!)

Are you coming to my party tonight? Let's celebrate!!

To end my "sharing" series to recognizing my reasons for blogging, I wanna talk about my final reason: Sharing My Life.

I feel like I can tell you anything. :)

Over the last 1000 days, a LOT has changed in my life.
I got engaged.


Ellie learned to read.


And we taught her about all things fancy.
Ellie, my little girl as Audrey Hepburn

The Rowskabouts, the ska band I was in way back in high school, got together for a reunion show.


I wrote letters from my heart, yes publicly, to my brother, and to my sister.

Ellie started kindergarten.


We bought our house!


Took Ellie to Italy.


And Paris.


And Mexico.


Then, all in one weekend this May...
Ellie had a dance recital on the 21st.


Then, the Joplin tornado hit. I blogged about it here. It was the hardest part of my life, not being able to get a hold of Ellie.

I lost my grandma.


But we picked ourselves up and dusted ourselves off.
Ellie was in USA Today.


And then started 1st grade at her new/old school.


The best thing that happened over the last 1000 days... I got married!!

All in all, a LOT has happened, wouldn't you say?!!

Thank you, readers, for sharing it all with me! I appreciate you! And love you. And I love this blog.

Talk to you soon,
Dale
