I did something fun last night..with my daughters..but I'll post about it next time because I had prepared this note..and it wouldn't be the same if I waited:)
Merci Mille Fois..Means thanks a thousand times..but in English..we say Thanks a Million:)

I have loved blogging..as I saw number 1000 approach..(number of posts I have posted)..I could not believe I had.
Hard to fathom actually sitting down in front of my computer to type out 1000 posts.
Before blogging..I thought even one post would be hard..but we had Lucas:) so I knew I could write about our first angel on earth.. he was my second post ever in 2008.
My first post.. was the ocean.
I think I was AT the ocean when my friend suggested I blog.
The power of persuasion:)
And then I realized I loved this thing called Blogging.
It is clearly evident that I am not a tecchie..or my blog look would change..I don't even know where to begin..I know what I love..but I can't get my head around starting over..LOL.
I am such a creature of habit..
I have the same bedspread since we moved here..my duvet cover for winter is even older.
I don't change things a lot.Except boots and coats and scarves it seems..my daughter has rubbed off on me;)
I get into something..settle in..and stay..the same..
I have learned so much from all the blogs I follow and all the comments I have been happy to read.
You have no idea how some days..that little comment..or post..or tutorial..or recipe..or e-mail..
was all I needed to get going:)
And some of you are from day one.I cannot believe we are 8 +yrs older;)
I read a book I enjoyed..My name Is Lucy Barton..there are a few sentences I loved....the author is Elizabeth Strout ..I had just read another of her books..The Burgess Boys..and I had read Olive Kitteridge..Frances McDormand is just great in the movie version.
Back to the book..
This is the excerpt from the book..I wanted to share here..
There is a line Tennessee Williams wrote for Blanche Dubois..:"I have always depended on the kindness of strangers".
Many of us have been saved many times by the kindness of strangers,but after a while..it sounds trite,like a bumper sticker.
And that's what made Lucy sad,that a beautiful and true line comes to be used so often that it takes on the sound of a bumper sticker.
I sure hope my saying thank you..does not sound trite..because I mean it.
I am grateful that we visit and share..always.
