Post # 400

Four hundred is a mighty big number. I never thought I would be around blogland this long. I keep writing for several reasons. I am a wordsmith. I really enjoy both the writing and the blogging. I also have made friends here that mean the world to me. I think this blog might help others in keeping the wonders of marriage alive and fresh. Now that is an interesting way to say what ttwd can do for you and your marriage. 

One of these days, when the rain and cold come, I am going to make myself a big London Fog or have Jack make me a big Cosmo and start at post # 1 reading our journey from the very beginning. 

So we are celebrating this event and ask you to join in too.

Without you, I would not still be blogging. I would have stopped long ago. Thank you for your continued support here. 

Thanks, L. for the perfect photo. When she sent this photo, she said there was real symbolism here. The hearts were Jack and me. The candles were all of you. What do you think? 

Please share a post that really spoke to you.



  1. Hi Meredith,
    That is a perfect picture! As for a post that really spoke to me, your personal email during my recent difficulties wins hands down. You related your past experiences in a very heartfelt and loving manner that made a big difference to me. Thank you. Amy

  2. Wow, 400 posts, that's quite some number! Congratulations Meredith. I always enjoy visiting here :)


  3. Happy 400th. Glad you're here and happier yet that we're friends.

  4. Many congratulations, Meredith!!! :) How wonderful that you have shared 400 posts with all of us in Blogland, the past few years! That's a whole lot of writing! I know that you help many people behind the scenes as well, and that is something to be more than proud of!

    I've always enjoyed reading here, but mostly I've enjoyed the mighty fine friendship with you and Jack, that grew out of our blogging efforts. It's a treasure, to be sure! It always blows my mind that the simple act of looking up the word 'spanking' has led to so much more than the words on a page, but true dear friends, near and far! I have to say that I am SO grateful to your efforts in that realm. With that in mind, I LOVE the post that you wrote when we met, back in the spring of 2015. Wonderful, fun memories...!

    It is always a pleasure following your special journey, with your loving fella Jack. I've also very much have enjoyed L's contribution through the years. Thank you, L! Happy 400 posts, to a dear friend! Love,

    <3 Katie

    To say that I'm grateful to have found you and this beautiful little blog barely touches how I feel about you and these posts that have been so life changing for me. You have touched me in a way that no one else has and it truly means the world to me. Thank you to both you and Jack for sharing your life with me, imparting your wisdom, and being a friend like no other. Your blog has been a Godsend, and you are truly a master wordsmith. I am thrilled and feel so very fortunate to have found you. Thank you with all of my heart for blogging. xo

  11. Mere, I love L's photograph. A thousand little candles is a great analogy for all the lives you and your words have touched.

    I think my favorite blogs are windows into what marriage and love can be. It was here and with you that I discovered who I really was. You opened up a whole new world to me. Your writing and your friendship bring me great joy.

    Thank you for being you. Congratulations to both you and Jack on this special occasion.

    Much love,

  14. Congratulations on your 400th post! Thank you, Meredith, for all the inspiration you have shared, and the community that you have helped create amongst many of us. I remember when I first discovered "New Twist", and it made such a difference in our marriage. Your writing is lovely and honest, and I loved getting to meet you in person.
    Here's to many more!!

  15. The two posts you have written about Jack's hands were my favorite. I love looking at my husband's hands. He amazes me with all that he can so effectively do....his hands' many different abilities and touches. His hands make me feel loved, and that's what I got from your posts.


  16. Beautiful... and congratulations on sharing your journey so others can learn and grow in their own journies.
