When my youngest son began kindergarten this year, I knew that suddenly some snippets of free time would become available to me. Time to myself during daylight hours; time I consider a gift. I carefully avoid using this “gift” to clean my house or run tedious errands. This is time to paint and sand, meet friends for treats, wander around Michaels; to discover the world of blogging! Blogging is new to me. I enjoy searching thoughts for information that is “blog-worthy” to post, taking photos, and clicking link upon link to find new blogs. My experience with fellow bloggers (bloggettes?) has been wonderful. Everyone is so sweet, encouraging, supportive and generous.
This post is to say thank you to anyone who has visited my site or is just finding it for the first time today.In the midst of a sometimes harried or hectic day, how restorative it can be to find a new comment. I recently won a contest at the Cynthia’s Cottage Design blog. In addition to the lovely things that will arrive any day (pictured above), I am making a new friend. What a gift that is!
