Last Blog: 28/28.

I laughed a lot today.

I am blessed to have such an amazing family and also such amazing friends.

I can’t believe I actually blogged every day this month, but I really can’t believe that the month is already over.  I am very happy that tomorrow is the first day of March because that means that spring is closer!  Thanks to everyone who read my blogs.

To celebrate my accomplishment, and encourage commenters to come out of their shell, I am offering a FREE ART PRINT!  All you have to do is leave a comment telling me which February post was your favourite and why.  Those who have commented throughout the month will be added in as many times as you left a comment (does that make sense?).  You will be able to choose a Chelsey Roberts original art photo from flickr, facebook, or my website (in the art gallery). 

The contest will close on Monday, March 2, 2009 at midnight.  I will contact the winner via e-mail, so make sure to enter your e-mail address when you leave your comment!

March 1, 2009 - 1:49 am Merlin - I Liked your entry about Estonia of course! Love You!

March 1, 2009 - 4:05 am Marilyn - Hi Chelsey! I always look forward to reading your blog... it's sort of my way of keeping up with what's new in the Roberts house. Eva is such a cutie. I am sort of sorry the month is over - this became my morning coffee ritual! I like all your blogs but in particular the one about choices. There are so many kinds of choices but each one we make affects our lives and the lives of the ones around us. Such a little word... but a very important one! Keep blogging... I am looking forward to seeing what is on your mind! Auntie Marilyn

March 1, 2009 - 6:48 am Harm - Hey Chels! Does my fasting fbook message count?! Ha ha. I loved your Feb. 13 post- totally creative!! And, I can't get that picture of the orange out of my head! Seriously..it makes me want to take a bite out of my screen. Ha!! By the way, you've inspired me...I'm going to continue the challenge by attempting an entry a day in March! Thanks for all the posts...great job.

March 1, 2009 - 7:23 am Jill - I think my favourite would be the Estonia post. With my recent decision to go back there this summer, it struck a chord in me, and made me feel very blessed to love that place. Also, I loved your picture of the orange and cupcakes! But, I found them all to be very encouraging and insightful! I really enjoyed reading your thoughts and things that you are thankful - they reminded me to see the beautiful little things in each of my days as well!

March 1, 2009 - 7:25 am jerms - I like the one where wrote about how the Montreal canadiens beat the Vancouver Canucks 3-0 earlier this week. Oh wait, you didn't. But you shouldve. It was a beautiful thing, ask your husband

March 1, 2009 - 7:37 am jessie - even though i did not comment, i faithfully read your posts pretty much every day. my favorite was the one about what you wanted to be when you grew up. i am easily nostalgic but that one got me thinking about my childhood and what i desired to be when i grew up. it's funny to think that so far i have been none of the things i wanted to be quite yet but it got me thinking about my dreams and how i can be and do pretty well whatever i put my mind to. so thanks for that.

March 1, 2009 - 8:19 am tbug5 - I like all your posts. You have a great mind my friend! My favorite was 9/28 and the cupcake and orange day (seriously, I was considering licking my monitor, it looked that Yuuuuuuumy!) But, 9/28 where talked about your old self being dead and gone was my favorite. Just rings true for where I am at right now! Have a gooder. Are you going to keep blogging lots thoguh?? I emjoyed it!

March 1, 2009 - 5:16 pm Rachel = ) - It was fun knowing I'd get to read a new Chelsey post every day this month! I always looked forward to them and really appreciated your thoughts. (Sorry for not leaving comments -- I'm better with facebook.) Although the "diet of the mind" and "25 things" posts stood out to me as highlights, my absolute favourite was the short post about getting some rest during prayer time. It was the perfect blend of Eva's sweet innocence and your sweet insight, and it was just what I needed to hear that day. Thank you! (By the way, I love how you connect Scripture so naturally with what's going on in your life. It inspires me to keep up the effort we've been putting into teaching our girls memory verses. Our goal is that the Word of God be such a basic part of their consciousness that even if a day comes when they want to turn their backs on the Bible, they won't be able to -- it'll be in them.)

March 1, 2009 - 6:21 pm Dixie - Feb 3rd: "Thankful For..." and Feb 8th: which includes "A diet isn’t just a list of bad things you avoid, it can be a list of good things you need to include in your life." I've said this before, but it bears repeating: Chelsey, you have a great eye for photography, but your insight and writing skills are EXCEPTIONAL.

March 1, 2009 - 7:55 pm Judy - Hi Chelsey, I love the little stories of Eva. It warms a Grandma's heart and brings back so many memories of our days with little ones at home. Your dedication to the Lord has made me stop and reflect about my life and am I living and doing the things I should be doing. You probably don't know me but my daughter Amanda was probably at school with Peter and I was at school with Kerry and Lavonne. Keep up the blogging. Judy

March 1, 2009 - 10:05 pm Janet - Baby Love 4/28. Because I know and love that feeling of a bursting heart when I am so overwhelming thankful for my children. And it made me cry. Although I think that happened with a few other posts too. I'm so glad you write because it touches me and makes me better.

March 1, 2009 - 10:19 pm Alicia - Chelsey! as harm said i love reading your blog and reading it on a daily basis was a highlight. you always have such good things to say and a cute daughter to boot! everytime i see joy she has a story to tell me about her cute nieces and nephews, eva included and they make me smile. well i'm a sucker for the pop music and so i would have to say that my favourite post was the dead and gone one, and not just because i love the song! thanks for sharing your thoughts! Alicia

March 1, 2009 - 11:19 pm Ellen - I enjoy your blogs very much, and what a lovely little girl. So joyful and sweet. Two blogs which I remember as being particularly meaningfull at the time were on Feb.2, and Feb. 8. Of course the one on Glen Elm touched my heart!! I hope you will continue to write often. Love to you and yours, Ellen

March 1, 2009 - 11:33 pm Tami - ...I will happily tell you again you are a gifter writer and a gifter photographer.... I love your posts that reflect the contentment and JOY you are finding in your EVERYDAY! esp. your everyday with your child! (ie. the 11th and the 20th) I love reading about the little moments that make your day special b/c that reminds me to reflect on my own little moments!!! : ) I am lookign forward to your 365, but hope you keep blogging too! : )

March 2, 2009 - 8:29 am Penny - Chels...it's an amazing thing to read your blog and see your heart each day. Of course, your entry on Estonia is my favorite because that's where I met you and where I began to believe that God had once again brought something precious into my life. Love you both ... and can't wait to meet that sweet girl of yours.

March 2, 2009 - 8:48 am melissa - hey chels...look at all these secret readers coming out to comment. i love to read your blog and keep up with you guys. plus i love any updates on eva. she is seriously the cutest little girl ever. pictures of her make me smile. my favorite post is the one of eva in her big girl bed. i remember on a regular basis waking up totally flipped around like that. i love all the little joys you find in spending the day with her. love you guys.

March 2, 2009 - 5:11 pm Erin - My favorite post is every one where you talk about Eva. I love your fresh outlook on mothering and the joy you take in your child. I learn a LOT from that. I also love how you tie scripture in to- like-everything. Really, I just love you and I am thankful that I get to be your friend!!!!

March 2, 2009 - 8:28 pm Beth - I've never left a comment before, even though i do read your blogs faithfully; I thought I would give this little contest you're doing here a shot though! I think ONE of my favorites (because they're all great) is Have Thine Own Way 2/28... i just really related with what you were saying, and it was really what I needed to hear that day! Thanks for all your great words and wisdom in all these topics Chels! It's very helpful!

March 2, 2009 - 8:41 pm kelli - i loved the estonia post. (of course!). that place and that time and those people changed me in ways that few people can understand. i'm so glad that you are one of those few. i also love all the posts about eva. i love how much you love.

March 2, 2009 - 8:55 pm mavis - well it looks like i popped in at just the right time. handy dandy. i must say i liked february 8th's post the best. diligence and discipline in the little things sure impact the big things. all of life is knit tightly together. so make wise big choices as well as wise little ones (and those are harder).
