Belated Blog-o-versary!

by Mindy Lockard on February 19, 2010


“You should start your own blog,” said Peter Hopkins, of Crane and Company, to me after the 1998 National Stationery Show.  My response, “I don’t know that I have the time or enough to say.”

Never say never. Last Monday we celebrated our one year (one amazing year) blog-o-versary!  We are a few days late, because honestly, February has gotten away from me…  better late than never!

However, I couldn’t let this milestone in the life of our little home on the web pass without saying “Thank You” to you the reader!  Thank you for the past 370 days… not only for being a reader, but being my friend!  Thank you for stopping by, for commenting (they make my day), forgiving my occasional mistype or misspell, and embracing this little world of gracious living that is so close to my heart!  Thank you for cheering me on as I balance my passions: one that’s more of a dream than a job and the other of creating a happy healthy home for the loves of my life!

 I count myself so blessed by you and look forward to continuing this winding journey of building a dream of a brighter and more gracious future together!

Oh, and just for a little fun, here’s my first post !

Since its a birthday guess that means some cake is in order?

Congratulations Mindy! What a great milestone to reach; one of many more to come, surely. Its always a great pleasure to stop by and not only read your new posts, but always leave with a smile and with a bit more gracious living knowledge.
Happy blog-o-versary!

Your friend,

Jen, Thank you that means so much coming from a domestic super star like yourself! You are one of the best friends a girl could have. Thank you for sticking with me on the web and in life! You inspire me.
