Kisses and hugs
PS welcome to the New Year everybody!
As my writing is sporadic here, I do wonder who’s out there reading my posts (aside from my family and friends) and what your life looks like. Do blogs still get read and cherished, when they are so much longer than other social contacts?
Having this blog has been so important to me and aside from a nostalgic look book for myself and family it has been a place of creative expression, expansion, glimpses of life’s gold and sharing with a bigger world than my home life. It’s been wonderful to have something all my own amidst family life and It’s incredible to feel connected to folk near and far!
I’m dreaming up spending more time here this year, and to do more of this thing I love to do yet seem to be struggling with. Words are being clunky in me, the songs of expression hushed and I can only overcome that with writing more, and anticipate the joy that brings me.
If you are still out there reading along I’d love to hear about what you enjoy seeing here on my blog!
if I don’t know you personally I’d love to know where you are from and how your days are shaped. Tell me if you have a blog and I will come and have a visit!
Blessings upon the coming year.
May peace reign within and without
Looks like a lovely birthday celebration… and is that Lily’s card? I do love her drawings! I still look up your blog… We met at Granite Gorge near Mareeba in August 2012… I remember marvelling that we had friends in common half Australia away…
Hi! That is so great that you’ve stayed in touch! I couldn’t load anything up for your blog link, are you still writing? I’m finding it incredible on this Tasmania trip also the common links we have with strangers. Only a friend away! Lovely to hear from you.
Oh yes that’s Lily’s card! Every letter has a cute illustration! I said to her that a card or a drawing is the best present! X
