Ever So Grateful

It’s been awhile since I did a formal Thankful Thursday post.  I didn’t want the pasts to feel forced, so if I couldn’t think of anything pressing or if I had something else on my mind, I’ve let those things come out.  I like schedules and routines, but I don’t like to be forced into them and, anyway, it is my blog, right?

I’ve been blogging for less than a year now.  When I started, I wasn’t sure where it was going to lead me or if anyone would really read it.  I know some of my friends and family would read, but I wondered if me going on about whatever would wear thin.  Well, I am sure it does, sometimes, but I am happy to say that I have really been enjoying this blogging thing!  Hopefully you have, too!

One thing I was hoping for when I started blogging was to connect to people who have similar interests.  Like moving to a place where you don’t know anyone, this can take awhile, but if you keep blogging, it does eventually happen.  I have “met” some really lovely people who have some really interesting blogs.

Some of these bloggers have been really kind and have nominated me for various blog awards.  This is something I never expected when I started blogging and it is kind of a fun thing that is passed around from blog to blog, kind of like a chain letter, but more fun.  It is really gratifying to know that my blog is being read and that people enjoy it.  I am really, really grateful to those who have thought I deserved a reward.  I never have been a chain letter kind of person, no matter how fun or enticing, so I hope you don’t mind if I don’t pass it on, but I would like to introduce you to some of my new friends.

Pearls-toronto knits all the time and watches old movies, too.  If we lived closer, it would be great fun to have sit and knit movie nights!

Notes from Rumbly Cottage was one of my very first followers.  She has great book reviews and fun family movie reviews.

The Modern Home Economist  is a newlywed and has a lot of fun trying new things, sharing her process and everything she learns.

alwaysaddmorebutter has a good time cooking and baking.  We are having a lot fun in the Tuesdays with Dorie and French Fridays with Dorie groups.

There are a lot more blogs that I enjoy, but I’ll save those for another time.  For now, I’ll just say that I am ever so grateful for all of you who read my little stories and leave comments.  Here’s a picture of a crown for you!

I know, it would be a little difficult to put this crown on your head, but I’m sure you could find something to do with it!  Thanks, everyone!  You all make blogging more fun!

  2. Three Cheers for Pearls-Toronto!

  3. And we are grateful for you, dear Loaves and Stitches 🙂 Thanks so much!

  4. Thanks for mentioning me! I really enjoy reading about your sewing projects because I am a horrible sewer and I envy those who can. In home ec I got an A+ in the cooking portion and a B- in sewing and it’s pretty much still true to this day. Your bread crown is lovely and I would rather eat it than wear it! 🙂

Tell me what you think!
