I'm in love, I'm in love and I don't care who knows it.
I'm in love with YOU.
Blogging has brought so much joy to my life. I love writing (poorly or properly depending on the
For instance, late in 2009, I stumbled upon a Blog written by a Russian girl. I was instantly attracted to "The Thank You Project" as the author, Julia, had embarked on a journey to find something to be thankful for every day for a year. I seriously couldn't get enough of her posts- she made me think differently about my world.
That was then and here we are today almost 2 years later and we still have blog interactions regularly. When she was podcast on an Australian radio channel due to her drive to 'be thankful', I poured a glass of Pinot Noir and listened to it on my computer. I value what she has to say.
So when she noted that an American Magazine, Real Simple, that she didn't have access to included a question she posed in her Blog- I went on a search party to get a hold of it. Thanks to my Stepmom, I have it in my possession and was so excited to find her response (above). The pleasure in seeing my little online friend in print and knowing how excited she was to be there made ME more excited. So congratulations Julia and I will email you this weekend to inquire about how to give you the hard copy :)
That brings me to my little Canadian, Britt of My Daily Randomness. I was ecstatic when I won her giveaway and even more ecstatic when the contributing artist, Michelle Chang, sent me my goodies!

I love it, so much! Thank you, I can't wait to wear it.
And then of course... my last (but never least) international buddy, the Australian Rinniez of Momentary Lapse of Reality, cracked me up last week when I logged into her page to find a very sweet post about me. As undeserving as I was of this, she totally made my week with the picture she posted of us:
Bahahah. I love it. And Miranda, though a bit saddened, found a lot of joy in it too.
That's just a tiny glimpse of why I love my Blog and connecting with such wonderful people. So again, the pleasure is all mine and thank you, thank you, thank you for being in my life. I wish I could do an all-encompassing post about you all.
Why do you like to Blog?
