We Bloggers

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

First, just thank you.  Thank you so much for sharing your blog spaces this week ~ I was truly overwhelmed with the response to the blog party, nearly 300 inspirational stories, just amazing!  I’ve visited most of your spaces, met a lot of new friends, and learned so much from the glimpses into your lives.   

What’s the number one thing I learned from visiting all of you?   More than anything, we bloggers crave two things: comfort and convenience!  The kitchen island, dining room table, and family room sofa were the most popular spots where many settle in for time spent online.   In this modern age of portability, so many of us now create our ‘office’ wherever we plop down.  “Have laptop, will travel” was the dominant theme ~ I love that! 

Who are we?  We are bloggers!  And overwhelmingly, most of us prefer the comfort of our couch when we go online.

We also set up sunny spots in our family room, and we like to have pictures of our loved ones around us.

We carve out spaces in our hallways, and in the main corners of our homes where we can be part of the action.

Trying to Stop Time

Saturday, June 5th, 2010

We interrupt our regularly scheduled DIY blogging to bring you this sentimental post. 

twirling girlYou’ll have to forgive me for disappearing for a few days – I’ve been busy trying to make time stand still for just a moment.   

With my youngest daughter finishing kindergarten, and my oldest stepdaughter graduating from high school, it suddenly hit me like a ton of bricks when I was watching my youngest twirl with her friends on her last day of school.

When it comes to the time you have with your children, time never stops, in fact it flies at light speed. 

   

I met my hub and his three year old girl in 1995, and that little angel crawled up on my lap and completely stole my heart.  Over the years, I’ve been blessed to watch her grow from a toddler to a full grown adult, and all it happened in the blink of an eye. 

Fortunate for me, as a stepparent, I’ve been able to experience so much of what comes with the joys of parenting.
