Good morning, Happy Friday and Happy First Day of Spring! I've decided to join the Ultimate Blog Party for a couple of reasons: I'm a joiner; today is such a great day to have a party; I love everything to do with Blogs (addiction perhaps?); and anything with the word "Ultimate" in it must be good!
For those that are here the first time, please read on and get to know me. If you've been here a lot, go ahead and read because you might learn some absolutely fascinating insights into the real me. ;)
My name is Elizabeth and as you can see by the picture I chose to post that I have no problem at all poking fun at myself. (By the way, this was taken during a weekend retreat and I had just been given some very sour candy to try!)
I've been married to my beloved for almost 29 years (our anniversary is in a couple of weeks!), have a wonderful son, daughter and daughter-in-law. The current light of my life is my 20 month old granddaughter Brooklyn. It really is true that as a grandparent you are more able to relax and enjoy the kids. She is precious and a true joy to be around. And actually I am very blessed that our whole family enjoys spending time together.
I have gone back and forth as to the true purpose of my blog. I started this blog in October 2005 and I think by now I've more or less settled into my place. I love using this as a way to document what we've been doing (fun to go back and see what was happening 2 years ago on "this day" kind of thing) and being able to share pictures with family and friends we don't see on a daily basis. You'll find me talking about my hobbies - knitting, making cards, baking, reading, sewing - my thoughts, my Lord, my family and my pets. I love to spend time with my friends, presumably to get some work done on our hobbies, but honestly I just enjoy getting together to fellowship. :)
I've been fortunate to join the CFBA (Christian Fiction Blog Alliance), so if you enjoy reading you'll find book reviews here periodically.
And I've recently joined TWD (Tuesdays With Dorie) where we bake one recipe out of her book Baking From My Home To Yours each week.
I guess that more or less covers my blog. I think the whole blogworld thing is absolutely wonderous and it's been so much fun getting to know other ladies through this medium. How blessed we are to have technology that allows us to learn and grow from each other, as well as keep in touch with others.
