WOW!! 800th post. GIVEAWAY

Wow!  I can hardly believe it.  This is my 800th post.  Eight hundred!  I started blogging in September of 2008.  So just over 3 years, and 800 posts.  Crazy!!!  This blog has been my saving grace at times.  I try to make you laugh, I try to help you understand chronic illness, and sometimes I just use it for therapy.  That's why I started it.  At the encouragement of my friend Joanna, I started this blog.  So whether you love it or hate it, you have her to thank.  She really, really encouraged me to start blogging.  At first I was like, "meh, I can't do that.  YOU'RE the funny one.....what would I write about?"

And the rest, as they say, is history.  SO.  To celebrate, I'm having a giveaway!!!

So first, and this is a book I reviewed earlier on this blog, so you can check that out if you want, is the book

"Take Me Home From The Oscars...Arthritis, Television and Me" by Christine Schwab.

The second thing is this Sterling Silver Key necklace with a pearl in the center of the key, and rhinestones on the end. It's really beautiful.  So all you have to do is leave a comment.  Very simple and straightforward.  You don't have to follow me (unless you want to) or tell me what you love about me (although....well, nevermind), or jump through hoops.  Just leave a comment to enter the giveaway.

I am so excited to have reached 800 posts.  But even more than that, I never could have IMAGINED the friendships that this blog has blessed me with.  THANK YOU so much for sharing in my journey.  THANK YOU for reading.  THANK YOU for caring.  Good luck!!

I forgot to add the giveaway ends Friday, December 23.  I will be drawing the winner on Saturday, December 24!

Kerri, sometimes your words bring me back from the dark, sometimes they make me laugh, sometimes they make me cry and sometimes they make me think and sometimes they make me crazy but they always make me know that I am not alone out here. So thank you.

Kerri said...
