Wednesday Wonder & Blogaversary Announcement!


WINTER IS IN THE AIR











Hello Blogland Friends! As you can see the bay is empty of leaves now. Lots of bare branches everywhere. The temps have been dropping now (especially at night) and they're calling for the first snowfall in my immediate area this Friday. So mornings have felt especially cozy and I often light my candles while I have my coffee.  



But I wanted to share that today is also my One year Blogaversary!! Yay!! I can't believe it's been a year already. It went speeding by! I have done 290 posts already. Truly boggles my mind, but it also brings tears of joy to my eyes as I have made such wonderful friends here in my blogging world. I hope you all know how precious you are to me, and how much it means that you take the time to visit or leave a comment. You feel like another family to me - and you're extra special as you're all mine! I don't even need to share. Lol  You've made my days many times - especially when I've had some rough days caregiving for my MIL or other. Please know how much I love and appreciate you all!  



So to go along with that I'd like to share that I'm planning a giveaway as a thank you! I'm still working out the details of what I'm going to do and I plan on having it all set by next week. So stay tuned and please come visit next week (probably Tuesday) so you can enter for a chance to win as I'd love to show my gratitude in this way. Blessings to you all. XO

  3. Are you giving away a date with George Clooney? Sign me up!!

    Congrats on 1 year Carrie!! I know that's a milestone, and I bet it went by fast. I was looking back at old comments the other day and noticed we connected just when you started blogging. How cool is that! I can say 'I knew you when' when you become a blogging superstar. :).

    1. Do you really think I'd give THAT away Doreen?? Lol! I love you guys, but there is a line... ;)

      I truly want to thank you Doreen! You were one of the first ones I remember commenting and you also sent me several private emails to help me and give me technical advice. It meant the world to me - you mean the world to me!! I consider you a treasured friend on this whole journey. I'm so happy I found you/you found me this way.

      This continues to be such a fun creative outlet, but I never expected to feel so emotionally invested with it and find such wonderful friends. It's truly been the best and I hope I have many more years to come!

      God bless you little bloggie Angel you. xoxo

    1. Thanks so much Mari! I feel like I've known you longer as I followed Sandra for several years before I took the "blogging plunge" and I would often read your comments or see your recipes and loved you even then! Lol ;)

      I hope we will share many more years here together. I treasure you too!!
      xoxo

  7. Happy Blogaversary, Carrie! I am so glad you started this blog, as it has been a real pleasure to read, and an inspiration.

    I cannot count the times I have visited your blog and immediately felt hunger pains upon seeing the photos of your delicious concoctions. Your blog has inspired me to eat...and maybe once in awhile to bake! At least it has inspired me to think about baking. If only you could have downloadable samples of your recipes on your blog...but no, you post recipes where we have to do all the work ourselves! I guess it's an inspiration to all of us not to be lazy cooks.

    Thanks to your blog, I now know what I want for a wedding present from my family should I ever marry--a recipe box like your family gave you. And I even have your promise in the comments to drop them a hint for me when I give the word...heh, I'm not forgetting--thanks!

    Seeing all your beautiful scrapbook pages has inspired me to start a scrapbook of my own...sooo, currently a part of my room is a mess of photos, stickers, and loose pages. I have you to thank.

    Overall, I believe you've made this world a better place. Thank you for all your wonderful posts over the past year, and cheers to many more years of blogging!

  8. Oh good gravy Bethany - I'm a blubbering mess right now and you're just the sweetest Gal ever to say such beautiful things. You have truly made my day and made my love of this blog even stronger!

    I would be delighted and honored to "drop the hint" (or hit them over the head - Lol) with the information that you would love a wonderfully full family recipe box for a wedding present one day.

    I'm so excited about your own scrapbook (you're such an amazing photographer!) and would love to see some of it someday! Hope you'll share. ;)

    I hope to blog for years to come and keep sharing recipes and bits of my life - because I find such joy in it... specifically because of treasured friends like you my dear Gal. I hope we continue this friendship in blogland forever and a day. ;)

    Thank you SO much!!! Blessings on the weekend ahead. xoxo
