Day 1,000 started in a strikingly similar fashion to Day 1. I actually happened to be out of the classroom for both occasions (New Year's Day for Day 1, Professional Development for Day 1,000) and without much of any fanfare.
Many thanks to my sponsors - especially Laura P. from Xoelle and the kind folks at Ties.com who have been supporting my sense of scholarly style since the very beginning. Props also to that lovely lady to my left in that photo above who has put up with me every single time I asked "So which bow tie looks better with this shirt?" Love you, Lily!
