  1. I think you are doing good. You have more readers than me too and I have blogged for a longer time than you. I am having trouble really knowing what I want my content to be. Now I got a recipe in there among everything else. For now I guess I will just go with the flow. I am still working on my doozy list, making it that is. Most of the stuff I got on my lists are stuff I will need years to finish. Oh, got to go. Hubby is home and I need to get dinner on the table.

  2. Hi Nikki
    Love your list! and yes, Sangria SO counts!
    I love seeing Marianne commenting on your page, knowing the 2 of you makes me smile. I so appreciate your participation at "AP Tuesday"
    Don't get discouraged with blog growth. I found that when I stopped wondering if anyone read and just shared myself, is when I got more readers, surprisingly. God knows the plans He has for you and this blog.
    Know that you are a blessing to me through it!!


It is so nice to know that I am not talking to myself. I love reading your comments and I try to respond to each and every one! Thank you for stopping by!
