Preparation for Celebration!

I birthed this blog in June of 2007. My very first post debuted on July 2nd, 2007. It wasn't an earthshaking post. It was more like mind spillage and elation that I successfully published something that included a picture! Whoopee! Below is my first post...

Monday, July 2, 2007, "galumphing"

Today is my first official day of galumphing! My creativity is being sparked as I find myself in a new abode and, after an expensive move, working with a barely-there budget. So, my frolicsome heart is seeking out new adventures with far less to spend a day...than Rachel Ray! But alas, I will do it! Even with 2 adolescent boys energizing my thought process. My first plan of attack? To make some local discoveries...on the web!

And here is the very first person to post on my blog. Miss Shabby may or may not have been the first to visit, but she was the first cordial welcome! And, it has been terrific getting to know her.

In an earlier post, I told you that I was cooking something up... Indeed, I am. Tomorrow, June 25th, I will be launching the COUNTDOWN for my 1-YEAR BLOGOVERSARY! There will be a GIVEAWAY and a PARTY! YOU'RE INVITED! So, be sure to place a reminder Post-it by your computer!


  1. Congratulations on one year! Time flies, doesn't it?
    It is nice to know you and to enjoy your creative posts. I definitely read it more than I comment.
