First, a little review.
As most of you know, I retreated Google for WordPress about six months ago. When my posts would not publish for days I became discouraged. I wish I could explain why there were technical difficulties. Google never responded.
Discouraged and robbed of some joy and momentum, I almost gave up blogging.
After a month I decided to check in on the WordPress blog I had started before I moved to the more friendly Google Blogspot format. I dabbled . . . re-gained my confidence. . . and made the move. The transition has been a slow work in progress.
In my down time, my focus shifted to a personal movement, with a goal of improving my health and simplifying 34.
Some of you have inquired about the moving of my blog posts from blogspot to my newest home of expression. I thought long and hard about it.
- If I took the time to figure out how to “do it myself” . . . it would impact my moving and toning . . . and the progress of cleaning and simplifying my life.
- I could pay someone to bring it forward . . . however . . .I would rather save the money for some needed home improvements.
I deliberated about a throw back Thursday concept . . .
No . . . no . . . That’s a Facebook thing.
Then . . . in my ” there must be a little French
nuance bread in my life state of mind ” . . . the word appeared.
souvenir (n.) 1775, “a remembrance or memory,” from French souvenir (12c.), from Old French noun use of . . .
. . . a commemoration . . . a recollection . . . a keepsake . . .
Hmmmm . . . C’est tout!
Without further adieu . . .
. . . Souvenir
. . . The Best From Blogspot

About 6 months ago my daughter called me. She was super excited…”Jason (her hubby), was taking her to a Lake Forest Park bookstore to meet The Pioneer Woman!” …
” Who is the Pioneer Woman?”…(sorry..PDub!)
“Mom…she has a blog, it’s amazing… I’m going to purchase her cookbook!”
|Chrislyn and PW at the bookstore.|
I did… and through PW… I found Layla, Holly, Melissa, Emily, Jami… and this amazing…COMMUNITY!
I followed them for about few months…then at the end of October with some encouragement from Emily, I decided to take the plunge and start a blog of my own.
Jami…My first follower!
A little click here and there…then I realize…it’s time to do a couple quick chores and get ready for work…but…
