one year


Just over a year ago, I started this blog. Much to my surprise, blogging has given me an enormous amount of daily inspiration. Through the experience, I've made connections with some wonderfully creative, fun, and beautiful women who have become a part of my life and my heart. And I've had great, ongoing conversations with all of you; it really does feel like we're having a conversation to me here.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to visit here. Thank you for the motivation and encouragement, and the inspiration.

xoxo

You have added so much joy to my daily life. I love seeing your latest images, your writing and your love for life. I find it hard to believe that it has only been one year that we have been connected. I do look forward to meeting in person.
Please convey my congratulations to your side-kick sons! I enjoy seeing them grow and all that you impart.

Happy day! I love your blog, Lecia. You are a true inspiration. I am especially drawn to it because of your beautiful Pacific Northwest pictures. I miss it so and you give me a good dose! Your style and your trekking around with your beautiful boys are other great aspects I enjoy about this space. I hope you continue to blog for many years to come. Congratulations!

Francesca said...

Congratulations, Lecia! I love the photo of you celebrating with an ice cream, and the new pic of you in your sidebar which, I think, gives a nice, different message.

Congratulations!!!!!

Jeneice said...

Congratulations, you have a nice gathering that follows your blog! You are probably the closest to being a model mama than anyone I know. Your creativeness and ability to "let go of the reins" at crucial times are admirable. I love that you've exposed your children to some traditionally "feminine" things in life, such as cooking, picking flowers, etc. You are teaching them to do and appreciate so many wonderful adventures and projects. Just from the pics of the boys, it's obvious they are very well adjusted and love life. They sure have a Super Mama! Oh, and your photos are top rate. Sincerely, Jeneice

We are traveling, and somehow I missed your blogiversary! Congratulations! I am proud to count myself among your long-time readers!
