Some of you may not be familiar with the bluebonnets of Texas so I thought I'd share a photo. They are really a type of "weed" that blooms for a couple of weeks in the spring, usually around Easter. There are fields of them as well as areas along the highways where they grow profusely, especially if we've had a lot of rain or moisture over the winter. Tons of people get out in the midst of them for photos, especially to have their little ones photographed. They are not cut down while blooming ~ just allowed to be there for everyone's pleasure. * Just a bit of Texas nostalgia for you! *
If you are familiar with my friend Leslie's blog, Gwen Moss, then by all means please stop by and visit her...you're really missing out. She has a beautiful post from Sunday that I feel is vital to all of us. It's about comparison ~ comparing ourselves to another, our blogs, our homes, you name it! I've gotten caught up in that "comparison" thing a time or three since I've been blogging and it's NOT a good thing either! I'll bet you have at some point...and no, you don't have to admit it. :) Could have been a day that you were tired, worried, PMS'ing, didn't sleep, not enough coffee, you know the drill! A little tiny thought could creep in while you're reading blogs and thinking, "Her house is gorgeous, she always looks dynamite, she & her husband never argue, there's never a shortage of money, etc." We really should never do this to ourselves. Please stop by and check out Leslie's post...she is an incredible writer and overall, wonderful person! She says it much better than I could. Oh, and yes, her name is "Leslie" and she explains the Gwen Moss connection. ;-)
I feel so FREE this evening! I stopped by the apt office and signed the "Intent to Move" form this afternoon. Yay me!!!! I cannot wait to get out of here...
Oh yes, I understand that GFC and Google Reader goes away effective July 1st! I treasure each person that has chosen to follow me and appreciate so much anyone taking the time to stop and visit and leave a comment. You know, I think when we first begin blogging, seeing the "number of Followers" is so huge! I don't guess we will be able to see that with the change but I want you to know how very much each of you mean to me ~ very serious about that.
UPDATE: I would like to share Amy's post about Bloglovin' ~

Have a wonderful rest of the week!
