Along the Brandywine’s One Year Anniversary!



Yes, it is indeed! Exactly one year ago today I hit the “Publish” button on my very first post here. :) And quite the adventure (and learning process) it’s been! Some “thank you’s” are most definitely in order…

First, I’m so heart-achingly grateful to my Savior (to the Word made flesh)—who gave 
Himself for me—taking me as His own—and who gives me words to craft with in the first place—often supplying them most graciously when my mind is full to bursting and my hands are coming up empty!

~

I’m so thankful for all of you kindred spirits (and lovely friends! ;)) who have been so wonderfully welcoming in opening up and sharing your own blogs—and in joining me here! After turning words over—and over yet again—it’s such a blessing to discover that others enjoy reading them! A big thank you to all of you for your thoughts, encouragement, and enthusiasm!! (And thank you also to all of you who give up some of your valuable time to pop on for a quick visit or read email updates… :) I so appreciate it!)

~

Also, a big thank you to my family who have been most encouraging in all my ventures—reading all my posts here and generously allowing me extra computer hours (when I was trying to Google HTML solutions or complete Emma posts ;)), and who judiciously provide most constructive criticism and “well done’s!”

~ I’m so thankful for you all! ~


(P.S. And don’t forget! The Emma party is coming up in less than a week…the merest five days!!! ;))

      P.S. And absolutely! Most definitely...whenever works for you. Don't rush or anything, but if you had the questions fairly soon it would be nice (as it might take me a little time to write up the answers). I'm very much looking forward to it! ;)

  11. It's taken me 4 days to get around to saying Congrats and Happy Anniversary! You run this blog so well that I thought you had been blogging for a few years, not just one. :-) I really enjoy reading your stuff.

    And if you want to do another tag once the Emma party is over, I tagged you in the Janeite Tag. :-)
