2011 - A Year for Inspiration

As I pondered my plans, goals, resolutions and new words (see Espy - Adventures of Tufa Girl) I gave some thought to the question, "Why do I blog?"  And I had an epiphany - a flash!  I enjoy the interaction I get to have with other bloggers who have similar interests to mine.  (earth shattering - I know...)  I enjoy sharing pictures that inspire, make me laugh, or just provide a peek into the world in which I live.  I like to share tips and techniques that have worked for me, or in some way made life a little easier.

I have met so many helpful, inspirational, and just plain fun people since I started this blog in July.  Big thanks go out to Tufa Girl, Meredehuit- This Grandmother's Garden, Pinkhat - Ink and Penstemon, Tatyana - My Secret Garden, Cat - The Whimsical Gardener, Garden Walk Garden TalkSouthern MeadowsMeredith - Great Stems,  and Along Life's Highway (I am really looking forward to the 2011 game).

Thanks to all of you for your help, inspiration and your online friendship.  As this new year blossoms, may the journey of your life be fragrant with new opportunities, your days be bright with new hopes and your heart be filled with love.  Happy New Year!

Get your hands dirty!
