My 1000th post!
Finally, I have the free time to write a blog post! But I can't seem to get started. What's holding me back? In a word, the dreaded perfectionism I try to avoid. You see, this post will be my 1000th. Exciting, but I sort of wanted my 1000th post to be something special. I have a number of things I want to write about and photos to share, but none of them special enough for such a momentous occasion.
So here's what I finally decided to do: Share some links to some of the blogs and sites that have blessed me since I entered into this blogging adventure. That's what's really special about blogging, I think: meeting new friends, learning from them, being inspired by their creativity, etc. etc. So, without further ado, here are just a few links. I should add that because we still have dial-up and because I am very busy with other responsibilities, I just don't have time to visit blogs the way I'd like to. I know there are a whole bunch of other wonderful ones out there. If I happen to leave you out, I'm very sorry. Please know that it wasn't anything personal. Here goes:
Carrie has to go at the top of my list because, not only is she my daughter, and not only is her blog fun and inspiring to read, but she is the one who introduced me to blogging and encouraged me to start my own blogs. She amazes me with what a great homemaker and mommy she is!
I always enjoy reading Susan's blog. She's a godly wife and mom, a Southern gal transplanted to Canada where her husband pastors a church. It's interesting reading about her family and their adventures. Susan also writes some thought-provoking posts that will really make you think.
I have gotten so much inspiration from Kelli's blog. She takes the most gorgeous photos. Kelli is another amazing young mom who homeschools, gardens, decorates and cooks -- and inspires others (even a grandma like me!) to do the same.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
