A little stepping stone.I’ve reached one hundred post’s and I’ve enjoyed every minute of the time I’ve spent sharing my travels, my home , garden and recipes.

Who would have thought only a few month’s ago starting this blog would have meant so much to me,today. I’ve entered into a whole new world, meeting on line,new friends from all over the world. Those who inspire me with their photo’s,recipes,creative hands and poetry. Sharing their little piece of their world and entering into mine.

New Years resolutions are often hard to complete, but I’m on my way aspiring to achieve new things in my life. Achieving those ultimate goals…

I found a quote at the beginning of the year:

When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete,everybody will respect you.” Lao Tzu

I wrote this quote on a piece of paper and have been looking and reading it every day since then…there are many obstacles that bump into our lifetime and to be simply true to yourself isn’t always easy.

Through this blog,I can be myself and strive through my photo images of work on the land,creations with my hands and cooking with passion… this is me and I love sharing it with you.

I thank all of you who visit, the new friends whom I’ve met on line and who leave me those encouraging comments, and those of you who visit but haven’t yet met I thank you also…

So as I move on through this little adventure, creating and sharing this little blog I start each day with a smile and look forward to reading your adventures…


Thank you

  2. OH my dear friend, I had goosebumps reading every single word you wrote here and have copied the quote!! It is so inspiring and I am very honored to have met you!! When I started blogging only 7 months ago, never ever in my wildest dreams I knew there were so many wonderful, loving people like you to share our spirit and hearts with. It has opened a new world for me too and I am lucky to share with you in this virtual world. To so many more wonderful moments to share my dearest Yvette. Blessing to you too ~ Always ~ Amanda xxx
