Title and background of my first blog
A year ago 04/19/2009, with a little help from Blogger and
Dawn, from The Feathered Nest,, I put together my
first blog and posted the same day. 212 posts, 562 followers, giveaways,
projects, photos, and more photos are journaled here. Hundreds of thoughtful
comments from bloggers and readers are penned here. Snippets of my
life with family and friends are between photos and carefully typed web pages.
There is something medicinal about journaling your life.
Two years ago, June 30th, my husband and I picked up lock stock and barrel,
and moved to the southwest. (Our son, daughter-in-law and 5 grandchildren live here.)
After living in Wisconsin for over 43 years,
this was not an easy task. We left behind extended family and friends. :-(
My heart is with my husband, so as a wife that made it a tiny bit easier. :-)
And the thought of going back a couple times a year!
Blogging has been a way of taking some of that long distance
lonesomeness and turning it into something good by keeping in close contact with
people that we love. Blogging is a blessing and an outlet. For me, I can type out as little
or as much as I like. ALL of the comments left here
have been a huge blessing. I read all of them and look forward to
more as I share my life here in the southwest.
Believe me when I say, I have been blessed in so many ways.
As a little token of appreciation I'm giving a little something away.

I'm taking a little from each giveaway I've had in the past and
will pack a sweet little box for one winner.
A little from here:

How about some of these?
Perhaps a few charms?
