Hey EVERYBODY!!! Do the Happy Dance! I’m Celebrating My One Year Blogiversary and 100th Post!!!

Did you hear the news!?!

I am celebrating my one year blogiversary!

…AND between the two blogs that I write there are 100 completed posts!

C’mon! Join me!


I’ve decided to take a look back to ponder what I’ve accomplished in a year…

My goal was, and still is, to write a blog about family, faith, friends, and special needs.

I believe I’ve been true to what I set out to do.

I’ve introduced you to six generations of my family!

…and I still have more stories to share!







I’ve been privileged to share my daughter’s world with you…

…and also introduce you to one of her special needs teachers.

You’ve met friends…and you’ve shared various journeys with me.

Later, I also began to blog about crocheting, a passion of mine!

Thanks for following along to see my creations!

I’ve learned a lot about myself…and I’ve confirmed some things I already knew…

…that I can be creative…diligent…dedicated…expressive…contemplative…spiritual…


…and every now and then I surprise myself!

I can hardly believe that I also sang a song for you!

Amazing what happens in the blogosphere…

During this year I also learned about you!

I learned about your generosity, your sense of humor, your curiosity, your passion, your dedication to causes, your expressions of love and life.

I learned about your talent to convey ideas, to teach, to inspire, and to create dialogue.

You share your appreciation with a word of thanks and even an award or two!

Here are most of the ones you shared with me.

There are still a few more that I’ll share in the coming weeks!




Thank-you everyone for following my journey, for sharing your talents, and, for reaching out through the blogosphere to say hello, to offer encouragement and to extend a hand of friendship to a fellow blogger!

I’ll leave you with another view of my 100 posts.

In case you ever wondered what could possibly be going through my mind as I wrote these posts, here is your opportunity to take a look!

What’s shown below are the words that make up the titles to this year’s posts!




Quite a jumble in that little head of mine!

There was so much to say…so much to write!

It was just a matter of sorting through it all.

(My hubby, Al, says chocolate also helped!)

Well, as I complete post one hundred and one, and as I begin a new year of writing I know there are gems hidden in my family that I am finally beginning to uncover. I don’t know exactly where the trail will lead, but I’m looking forward to taking the journey, and to making new discoveries!

The next thought bubble is beginning to form..

So to all who have been following along, and to those who have just discovered my sites, thanks so much for joining in the journey!

I’ve enjoyed every story and I’m looking forward to more!

But in the meantime before I start my next post, I’ll be doing the happy dance!

p. s. I’m actually visiting the familia for the next few days, so I’ll resume with regular posts next week!  It’s time to go – there’s a celebration outside!!


I've always enjoyed writing and finally decided it was time to blog! As part of my profession I write every day, but I'm now trying to take the time to write creatively. My family and friends have been very encouraging as there is little that is written down in the way of a family chronicle. This is a favorite topic of mine! In addition to family history, I write about life, family, friends and faith. My husband is a full-time parent to our special needs daughter. I’ve explored this topic, too. I also enjoy music, crocheting, reading and relaxing with my family. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer!
