CountDown to 1000: Full Moon

Sometime next week I will be celebrating my 1000th post here at La Vida Dulce.

When I do finally get there, I will be giving away a few prizes...

I had thought it would be this week but I realized I have many posts in my Draft File that pad my queue.

As I was going through the file, I realized that I have a tendency to write things, send them to the draft file and forget about them.

So, in an attempt to get to the 1000th post I think I will pull what I've got and without editing (too much) just for fun.

This post was originally written on 2/22/08, when we lived in AZ. My sister-in-love and I were walking together a couple times a week. I miss those walks....

Y'all, I got up this morning to walk with a friend. It was very early and should have been very dark, but light being cast by the moon made it very bright outside.

Then later, around 7:20ish, I looked outside our kitchen window and saw the moon hanging so close to our home that I thought I might be able to touch it. It was amazing. I had to try to take a picture.

Although, I have to confess, that since I have two amazing, real-life, photographers reading the blog, I am a little nervous with my amateur-auto-focus ways.

But that's OK. I kill plants too.

Beautiful! Glad there'll b a party at your casa soon, since I've delayed mine. Couldn't think of how i wanted to proceed, so I just might have to do a surprise party, or something.

I love how you observe your surroundings,LVCG. I see howmuch poetry means to you, & it's bc you have the eyes & heart of a poet.

1,000???? Boggles the mind and is a little overwhelming to see that number when I'm on 326 and scratching my head every day for what to write :)

Becca @ My Crazy Good Life said...

1,000 posts??? Really?? I can't even fathom that right now.

Beautiful pictures. You should come back, visit, and take more :)

So, I'm at about 989 posts. I was over 1000 but went back not long ago and deleted all my drafts. I think you're ahead of me, but wouldn't it be fun to celebrate together???

Girl. 1000. Wowzerooni.

I have tons of drafts too! Funny to see what was on our minds that never made the 'cut' huh?!

Can't wait to see what you have coming!

Gretchen said...

Girl! Something worth celebrating!

The picture is amazing.

Good grief you have a lot to say :D Just kidding! I'm only up to 500-something. But I get really caught up in coding and not writing :) Love to see what you pull out of your drafts though! Great idea!

I saw your title and cringed, thinking one more of my friends had fallen victim to the "Twilight" craze. I'm happy to know otherwise. (If I'm wrong, please don't correct me!)

I like the picture.

Also wanted to say that I'm the same way with my drafts. I have, like, thirty of them waiting for me to remember why they're there. Or that they're there. Someday.
