Us ~ October 2012
Ten years! Today marks ten years since I began writing about my life here in this little space. Ten years ago, I knew next to nothing about computers, blogging, or uploading photos. I did, however, desire a place to document the daily activities of our family life as well as read about and learn from others who shared my love of home and family. My daughter Madison encouraged me that summer afternoon so long ago, and I am forever thankful that she did.
This blog has enabled me to share special moments, recipes, traditions, and, perhaps most importantly, pieces of our ordinary days. I have learned from and been inspired by so many friends over the years, women I would never have had the opportunity to know had this wonderful world of blogging not connected us across the miles. I have even met some of these incredible women in real life and now consider them and their families lifelong friends.
Ten years. Three graduations. Two weddings. Two amazing sons-in-law. And a lovely girlfriend of Rhett's too. Countless holidays. Two new houses. One new puppy. Endless desserts. Joyful days. Sorrowful ones too. Pumpkins and colorful leaves. Snowfalls and Christmas trees. Anxiety and OCD. Yankee candles. And, of course, Halloween.
Thank you for sharing all that and more with me, my friends. I am truly blessed to know each and every one of you. Please know how much I appreciate you and what your friendship means to me. I enjoy reading your blogs and look forward to sharing your lives with you each day. Thank you again!! And because a birthday should be celebrated, I am celebrating YOU! I am having a small giveaway to thank you for being a part of my afternoon coffee and evening tea these past ten years. If you would like to be entered in the giveaway, simply leave a comment below by Sunday, August 7th, at noon. I will then have my assistants, Rhett and Flynn, draw the winners, and I will post them on Monday, August 8th. What can you win, you ask?
One winner will receive an Amazon gift card.
