Making Music is having a Centennial!!!

Psalm 126:3 The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.

Today's is a big post!! The blog is not a hundred years old, so this is not technically a centennial. ;) However, this IS my one hundredth post on Making Music for The Master! 100 posts! I never really thought I would be able to be consistent with putting content out there, and am so thankful for The Lord allowing me to continue doing this for over a year now. In celebration, I have compiled a list of 100 of my favorite things in the whole world. They are NOT in any particular order. I sat down and started wildly typing, just putting numbers on things so I'd know how many I had... thus, it is most definitely not in order of importance. ;) Just wanted to make that quite clear. These are a bunch of somewhat random, but lovely things that are special to me. Hope you enjoy!

    1. Yes yes YESSSSSSSS!!!! You know me so well!!! :D Amen to all of those! You are such a great friend... <3 Thank you!!! :) <3

  3. Yay!! 100 beautiful blog posts! I have enjoyed reading every single one of them! :) Your list of things is great... The only one I can't agree with you on is bacon. I know, I know, I'm weird and bacon is AMAZING. SO GOOD. But it's a matter of opinion. I think you're the weird one for not liking ham. :P

    1. Teehee!! Ham is so salty!!! ;D

      Bacon IS really good, but you aren't weird. At least not...too weird... ;P Hahaha!

  4. Congratulations on 100 posts, Mykaela! I have enjoyed what I've read here on your blog. I'm currently on my 96th post over at mine... so, almost there!! I'll have to do something fun for my 100th post ;) Although I don't think I'm up to writing a list of 100 things! xD Maybe I'll just describe myself using a hundred words... or something like that :P

    1. Thank you so much, Grace!! I have truly enjoyed your blog as well! Your writing style is very fun. :) I'm looking forward to your 100th too!
