What a Week!

Whew! This has been such an exciting week for me in the blog realm! It all started when I found out that I won a giveaway from Deb at Homespun Living! This is first time I have won a giveaway and I can't wait to get the adorable wallet and notebook she made! Thank you so much Deb!

(the above photos are from Homespun Living and were taken by Deb!)

The next exciting thing happened when Jenny from Red House introduced me to her blog friends! Thank you, Jenny!

Then, my week got even more exciting when I linked up a post to the 'Good Life Wednesdays' blog party over at Sarah's A Beach Cottage and I was connected with so many people!

And then, topping everything off, Brenda from Cozy Little House featured me in her Welcome Wagon Friday post! Thank you so very, very much for welcoming me to the community!

 It's so exciting to be able to communicate and share creativity within such a huge group of people from all over. I love seeing all the wonderful ideas out there in the blogging community and I'm happy to be able to share my ideas too! Thank you to everyone who has been stopping by. I have loved to hear all of your kind comments and I'm happy to have made so many new blog friends! 

I can't count the number of times I startled my husband this past week with my yelps of excitement! I have been in such a tizzy... I even had to double spell check this post because I kept typing the same word twice, or skipping out words entirely! This is not uncommon for me, though. As a child my parents thought I had a speech impediment. However, when they took me to the speech therapist, she informed them that I was simply, too excited and speaking so fast that I was skipping words altogether. Apparently, this trait also carries over into my blogging.

This has pretty much been my facial expression this week:

Okay, and here's my version:

Anyway, I just want to thank everyone again and can't say enough how excited I am to be a part of this community!
