                      Thank you so much for
                   sharing this year with me!

1 year ago today, I decided to take a leap of faith and start a blog.
I kind of wanted to do it, if for no other reason than to participate in swaps and pink saturday, but was that enough of a reason to commit to a blog?
I agonized over it for weeks, would any one read it, what on earth would I write about, what should I call it, should I have a theme etc.... Finally I just decided to do it and it didn't matter if anyone read or commented, I was doing this for me! I still feel that way a little bit, but I am so thrilled that you do read, and you do comment, and you like me really like me....teehee.
It has been a year full of learning,
learning I am NOT a photographer so bad photos will be what is here...LOL
learning it is ok that no one comments
learning to not be offended at some comments that are left
learning there are a TON of wonderful women in blog land, that I now can count as friends and sisters
learning that God is alive in the hearts of so many
learning that my Faith is my strength
learning it is ok to be sad and ask for help
learning that to get love you need to give love
learning that the talent and creativity in our little world is AMAZING!
learning I love Pink Saturday and all the ladies there so much!
learning to be a better me.

So many lessons learned; I wonder what this year will hold?

I love y'all so much thank you for making this past year a great one for me!
Please join me for year 2!


  1. Happy Blog Birthday! I hope you continue to blog for many years to come! I hope 2012 is a wonderful year for you!


  2. Congrats on one year of blogging! Hurray you for sticking to it. It sounds like you've learned a lot this past year....I'm so glad you decided that your blogging was for you. Not for anyone else, not for comments,etc.

    I blog so I can remember some of what's going on in my life and 'cause it's fun. My favorite thing to blog about is my family. Comments are nice...thanks for your comment by the way...but I'd blog without them.

    Have a wonderful second year of blogging! I thik I may have to check out those Pink Saturdays you mentioned! : )

  3. Happy, Happy Bloggy Birthday!! Wishing you many blessings in 2012!!

  4. Happy blogaversary!!! We learn so much more when we see a bit of our journey on a screen, don't we? Sometimes I read my old posts and I almost don't recognize myself. God has used this place to stretch me like I would have never imagined. And I am especially glad I had that White Christmas in July blog party last year. ;)

  5. Congrats's on your blogs 1 year!! I'm still a blogging baby compared to you, and hope to make it that long!
    Just stopped by to say I'm happy to be trading tags with you this month via the ALTERED PAPER. Looking forward to seeing what you send!
    I hope you enjoy mine, and a few goodies too. :D
    Stop by and see me over @
    Happy tag making!

  6. Congratulations on your one year...and I can relate to all that you have learned, I have learned that also. I can also relate to the fact it has been for me...God has used it in my life more than I could ever dream.

    So blessings as you continue with your new year of blogging...thanks for stopping by my blog today and commenting.

  7. Happy Pink Saturday and New Year and HAPPY 1 YEAR BLOGGING! That is a huge huge feat! I nod in affirmation to everything you've listed! The fears, doubts, frustrations, ups and downs of blogging are fairly daunting in the beginning (and I've had a minimum of 4 beginnings!) and even later on sometimes. I think, as a few bloggers expressed to me, you really have to do this for yourself and no one else. That's a difficult place to asses and establish sometimes. You done it! Way to go! Hugs and Kudos to you! Wait, BLESSINGS too! Love, Jenn

  8. I am planning to start blog in the spring once I study to learn some of the techical/computer aspects.
    I am one of those people who sometimes don't comment on a blog because I have nothing new or pithy or whatever to add to other comments.
    However, if I open more than one day within a single blog, I comment on something, seems only polite thing to do
