300th Post! Awards and More

This is my 300th post!  I can't believe it.  I'm a little surprised I still have things to write about.  When I started this blog back in May of 2010, I was hoping to create a place of inspiration. A little sanctuary that would inspire me to dig deeper, write more often, to follow my dreams in the face of criticism and maybe encourage others to do the same.

I never imagined that I could gain so many friends and supporters all over the world.  I'm humbled by all of the very talented writers who give their time to help and support others.  I'm not sure that I've helped inspire anyone else but I'm grateful for all that I have gained from blogging.  I only hope I can give back more than I've taken.

Thanks to everyone who has encouraged me along this crazy blogging adventure.
