::three::


Three years.  Wow.  Has it really been that long since I started this journey called blogging?  I started this blog to keep family and friends up to date on our daily goings on.  To show off baby pictures and loose teeth and trips to the park and the zoo.  In some ways that is what it will always be. How was I to know what was to come next?  

I will never be able to put into words what all of this has meant to me and my life.  Everyone who has read or reads this blog has effected me.  Some have inspired.  Some have made me laugh.  Some have consoled me when life has simply gotten too tough.  Some have become sweet acquaintances.  Some have be come dear friends.  All have made my life richer.

Because I have been blogging for three years, there will be three giveaways.  One will be fabric from my stash (a generous selection), one will be vintage pillowcases, and one will be a pattern and some fat quarters.  Leave me a message and let me know which one you want.  I will draw the names on Monday.  

Thank you all for being such a huge part of my life.

Thank you for your blog! Your stories, your photos, sharing your family with us...you've made our lives richer, too.

And now it seems incredibly selfish to pick a giveaway option, but I will do so anyway. I would choose good old stash fabric.

Congratulations on three years blogging!

I just found your blog today and am really enjoying your archives...beautiful photos and stories. I especially loved the one about visiting your father-in-law's grave, and the ones about your new old-fashioned camera.
I guess I found it on the right day for a giveaway, huh? Lucky me, I'm always up for new fabric! I just started a little blog and can only hope to be going three years from now! Congratulations!

Happy Blogversary! I just found your blog today and the content of the first post caught my eye (and my heart). I will pray for your friend and her family---and you. We just lost my grandmother last month to cancer, such a terrible thing to battle against, but I can't imagine what her little ones are going through.

Hugs & Blessings!
