Happy 1,000th post to Our Good Life!!
I started this blog in December of 2007 with three goals: 1. to learn more about blogging and social media; 2. to make friends across the United States and the world; and 3. to preserve memories and history of mine. I believe that I have met my goals for these first 1,000 posts!
Some fun facts: The blog's original name was Lakewood Manor. The blog was named after the house we owned in Jefferson City on Lakewood. When we made the movie to Saint Charles, we wanted the blog to reflect what was going on in our lives now, and not be tied to the past. Our Good Life summed up what we felt about our move, and the blessings that we have been provided.
For fun, let's take a look back at the posts that were the most popular over this time span. The top five are....
5. With over 1,500 views, the A Year Ago, post.
4. With over 2,000 views, the One World, One Heart post!

For a blog that's just about me and my family, written at my whim, I feel very fortunate! Thank you to all those who have befriended me over the years, I love and admire each of you, and hope that the Blogger World continues on forever!
