Sweet Year


A year ago today I started my blog! My daughter, Kelly, encouraged me(actually showed me what to do) to start writing and I have to say it has been alot of fun and the first year has flown by!
I really look at blogging as a journal of everyday life. Things interesting and things not quite as interesting to others. But, for me, it has been a way of communicating with others in a way never available before. I sometimes feel a little like it's a little too much "me" and try to write about others but afterall, you only know what's going on in your little neck of the world!
And that's what you write about! I certainly enjoy other people's blogs. People live interesting lives! I have learned so much but mostly I have come to realize how very blessed we all are!
Thanks to you who stop by and read my blog. I, like you, read more than comment. BUT, if you would, please just this ONCE, leave a quick hello and where you are from! I would love to see who you all are!

Happy Anniversary Judy!! I enjoy reading your blog everyday, you are the sweetest person and I think if I lived close we would be good friends! I'm a little disappointed though, I thought we were getting a yummy receipe when I saw the chocolate dessert on you blog today. HA!!! I'm always looking for chocolate ya know. Have a wonderful week and I can't wait to drop down and read about the honeymooners.

One whole year! I hope you treat yourself to a little something special today to celebrate this sweet little part of your life. Isn't blogging fun??

I enjoy stopping by to read. I got my Mom hooked on reading blogs and I'm trying to get her to start one of her own. I tell her if Kelly's mom can than she can too! :) We enjoy stopping in at Kelly's also and trying her fun recipes.

Speaking of that, I have a question about one of YOUR recipes. I want to try your yummy pudding cake. Do you use instant pudding or cook and serve? A big box or little? It sounds so good, and so easy. I think I'll make one in honor of your blogging birthday.

Cuz everyone knows the calories don't count if they are celebratory. :)

Love,
Dove

(Who is sweltering in the Lone Star State, where the heat index is 112 today, but is thinking of turning on her oven anyway to bake a cake. In other words, Choco-holic-Dove.)
