Hello and welcome to my blog! If you haven’t heard of the Ultimate Blog Party, click on over and see the billions of links to blogs that you might not have seen before. And for a blast from the past, here’s my post from the 2009 Ultimate Blog Party.
So now for a little about me. I am Elizabeth, a Christian woman married to my beloved of 30 years yesterday! Wow – times really does fly when you’re having fun! I have an awesome son, daughter and daughter-in-law and my amazing granddaughter Brooklyn. She’ll turn 3 in July and is such a joy to be with. Here we are with the Easter bunny at our church’s community event last Saturday:
I do enjoy posting videos that feature Brooklyn, like this one where she tells me I’m “too big” to get in a closet while we were at an RV show. Ah…the honesty of little ones!
I have many hobbies – including knitting, card making, cooking – and I even have a new blog for that, Gramma’s Cookin’ that is taking much of my time – and reading. I’m fortunate to be able to do book reviews for several different groups, so you’ll find reviews of Christian books a couple of days a month here.
One of my favorite blog memes is the Friday Fave Five where we list 5 of our blessings from the week prior. I have found that no matter how bad your day/week is, just the process of picking out the blessings “turns your frown upside down” in no time at all.
Before I leave, here’s one more picture of Brooklyn. She has on her “princess” dress for Easter. :)
Oh and there are prizes for the Ultimate Blog Party! We are supposed to list what we’d like, so here are my prize picks if I should win:
