Say It Forward

Mom Blogs

As I look back on my short history as a blogger, I'm especially appreciative of the visitors who have been here since the beginning. Even when I put up some really lame posts, they've been here, leaving comments and encouraging me. So today I'm linking up to 5MinutesForMom and their Say It Forward carnival--an opportunity to recognize these special people.

I think the first reader who visited here more than once was Lorie. I think we "met" through Slow Cooking Thursday, but I also enjoy following her posts about family and life. I particularly remember her encouraging comment after I set off the smoke alarms when a roasting chicken splattered grease all over the inside of my oven.

Another frequent commenter is Lori. I appreciate her encouraging words, and I enjoy following her blog. Today she's talking about spices. She's also posted recently about her big garden and her recipe for homemade sloppy joe mix (which I can't wait to try!).

So for all of that, I'm happy to give the Say It Forward badge to Lorie and Lori. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and sharing your thoughts. I appreciate you both! Making new friends, online or in person, is one of the Finer Things in life.
