Hello. Welcome to Post #300.

31 July 2010

I don’t know what monumental thing to do for my 300th post.
I’ve been blogging for a year and a half and it has been a most wonderful journey.
I began so that I could share tales from my semester studying in Jerusalem.
Then when I got back from the Holy Land, I sort of stopped blogging for a while.
But when I got back to school in Hawaii I started up again.
And now that I’m home in AK for the summer, I’m blogging lots and lots. It’s lovely.

I don’t know how many people actually look at this little blog of mine, but I look at it a lot.
However tis fun to know peeps are checking it out with comments and followers and such.

For post #100, I wrote 100 loves of Jerusalem, but I decided not to do the same for the 300th.
Instead I’m sharing some of my all time favorite music with you.
