Mosaic Monday and my 100th POST!!! And Ruby Tuesday!!!

Today I'm participating in Mosaic Monday, Ruby Tuesday AND it's my 100th post!!!

First my mosaic....On July 1, DH and I celebrated our 37th anniversary. As some of you know, I'm a traveling Physical Therapist Assistant, and these days live in a motel during the week, at home on weekends. On our anniversary, I spent the day at work, and as a surprise my DH drove the 2 hours to get to me to spend some time together! I was so surprised when he showed up to ask me out for supper and give me a dozen red roses! They were quite lovely and the smell made my otherwise "sanitary" smelling motel room, smell a little more like home.

Thanks to all of you for the past 7 months of friendship and fun. I enjoy blogging more than I ever could have imagined, and enjoying reading all of your blogs too.

So here's how to get your name in the running for my 100th Blog Giveaway!!
