"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Happy 300th Blog Roundup

The fabulous Melissa over at Stirrup Queens has been doing a blog round up since way back on July 21, 2006. Each week she features 4 or 5 posts that really made an impact on her and offers them up for us to read too. I have to join in on the celebration fun and show you the cake I had to celebrate the blog round up birthday.While the key lime cheesecake from the Magnolia Bakery was pretty freaking incredible, what is more important is what it represents. I had this delectable cake while spending time with a fabulous woman I met through this ALI community. Dora has become a dear friend and is just one of many amazing women this community has brought into my life. We've laughed together. We sure as hell have cried together. But most importantly, we've grown to love each other. Y'all will hold a piece of my heart forever.

To quote Melissa...

Happy 300th (200th) Roundup to you

See ya in the morning!

yum! While you're there, you need to go to Butterlane, though ... even better than Magnolia. And bring all of the amazing blogHer women with you! I can't even tell you how sad I am that you are all literally an hour and change away, and I'm NOT there!! :(
