So much gratitude...

“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” Dr. Seuss

Wow.  Yesterday you all made me smile.  I AM IN LOVE WITH ALL OF YOU.  I asked where you were reading from and a whole bunch of you took a moment to say hi, introduce yourself, say such kind words.  I had a grin on my face all evening and Ed would hear me giggling and would say, "What? Did someone else say hi."  It really meant the world to me.  I could hardly fall asleep. 

It is a busy time of year.  And just like many of you, I read my blogs in my reader during moments in the day when I can squeeze in a second.  So I am not always the best at commenting.  But I know how fun it makes it and I cherish the friendships I have developed these last couple years through comments on my blog and leaving comments on other blogs. 

Blogging started out for me about documenting my boys lives - for them.  And it slowly became more of a reflection place for me.  And then I started making connections with other moms and realized what a place of inspiration and support it was. 

I want to thank you again for taking time to read.  I want to thank you for saying hi every once in awhile.  It really is so motivating and exciting to put a face or name to some of you. 

I would like to reply to my commenters but I notice many of you don't have your blog profile set up for receiving emails back.  So here is what you need to do...and this is going to change your blog reading/ commenting experience. 

1.  When you are logged into your blog click up on Design in the upper right hand corner.
2.  Then click on Account up in the upper right hand corner.
3.  On that page click on edit email settings.

This should solve it.  Then when you leave a comment on a blog the blogger can reply back to you via your email.  If your email is personal and you don't want it out there.  Set up a new email account and have that email forwarded to your regular email and then you don't have to worry about managing two email accounts.  You will be amazed at some of the AWESOME bloggers that will reply to your comments.  Friendships can form and it is so fun.  Throw a comment my way to give it a try and I will respond to you.  If I don't respond then you know it didn't work.


If you have a thought or idea that goes along with a post that I write you can leave a comment and select the anonymous button (but PLEASE just sign your name...even, just your first).  Comments left without a name make me sad.

Commenting and sharing your thoughts makes the whole blogging thing SO MUCH MORE FUN.  It becomes a conversation...over a latte, in our pjs, in the middle of the day, when you haven't talked to anyone who is more than 2.5 feet tall :)

Once again, I really appreciate hearing from you.  It means the world.  The kind things you said about my blog made my heart swell.  Seriously.  Burst.


I am going to snuggle a teeny wee one and cherish some girl time with my friend Kim.
Maybe a little laundry. 
Maybe not.

Have a great Tuesday.  Really.

Reading from work in Southern California :) I try and read every morning when I get in.

I just stumbled on your blog through your comment at Views from my Kitchen Sink. I admit as a mom to a 3 and 5 year old, your title caught my eye. I love my kiddos, but I truly cherish naptime, which sadly will only last a bit longer.

Glad I found your blog and looking forward to following along and reading more.

Have a great day,

Love your new header! I really want to get a pair of Converse for myself for the easy going t-shirt/jeans/hat days. :)

I couldn't agree more and I honestly cherish the friendships I've made in this world of blogging- including ours :)
