100th post: Lle quena i'lambe tel' Eldalie?

If you know what the title means, we could be very good friends.

Its our 100th post together dear reader. I am really very surprised. When I started the blog, I didn't know if I was going to be able to keep up with it, but I knew I really needed a way to save all the things that happen for us on any given day for Brian, and our friends and family that live far away. It has become so much more than that for me. This is the place I come at the end of the day to sort things out, uncensored. I try to give you the unfiltered, unedited version of me and our family.

To be honest, through this blog I rediscovered my love of all things written, and of writing. It has become for me, what writing and reading always was before the children, something of a passion. I think the blog has taught me how it can all fit together in this new life we have now.

I wasn't really anticipating having readers that extended beyond our family, but it has been SO awesome (and hugely flattering) that there are actually people in this bloguverse who come and read here often. I want to thank you for helping a very quirky girl, who only marginally fits in most places (except maybe for comic-con) to feel like that is okay, and at times pretty darn funny.

So since it is sorta a celebration I got myself a present this website gave me my name is elvish.. (drum roll) its Nerwen Vardamir Nimthîriel? Nerwen? Really? How is it that even in elven I'm still a dork...... so disappointing. This is the same language that spawned Arwen and Galadriel, and I get Nerwen.

I like my hobbit name much better: Marigold Moss of Lake-by-Downs, maybe I was just meant to be something of a hobbit.
