What a Difference a Year Makes

One year ago today I wrote my first blog post. 

This is the photo that accompanied it.

This is that sweet girl several months later, doing her own laundry.

This was taken at Christmas, 2011. 

Like Baby Z, my blog has grown over the past year, thanks to YOU. Your posts and comments have inspired and encouraged me; I look forward to another year with you, celebrating life.

    • I thought you’d been blogging longer than that, Judith. Sitting here listening to the wind gusts rattle the windows, a powdery cover of snow on the ground, I think it’s time to pay you a visit! :)

  25. That baby Z is so precious, and I love the pink cape photo! ~ Lynda
