The World of Blogs and More!

My friends often inspire me in life. This being the number 1 reason I surround myself with the wonderful people I do. When things get busy, tough or seem a bit out of control the first thing I forgo is this blog. I just often find I do not have the time for it. But I have friends like Lora, she writes and when she does I am always left inspired. Check her out at Oquirks.com. My lovely friend Knight, she is another creative genius and her blog entries always move me in one way or another. You can find her's at KnightStivender.com. When I want to learn how to mix business with my personal life (or how to digitally stalk) I turn to my friend Courtenay. siblingnotspouses.com. You should def stop and take a few minutes and read what these wonderful ladies have written. I am sure one or all of them will also inspire you. Subscribe to their blogs so that you will always have a bit of new light in your days. I am not the writer that these ladies are, so my blog will continue to be more of a diary than an art form. Yet, I feel there is a place for everyone to express themselves and this is mine. If you have a favorite blog, please leave it in the comments. I would love to check it out!

Fall is here and you know what that means!!! Bulbs! I have started my own lil "love garden" along one side of the house. I decided to call it this because, I have filled it with Iris'. Some of you know that Iris' are my favorite flower and remind me of my Granny. She called them flags and they were growing in multiple places in her yard when I was growing up. That is the first thing I wanted after she passed, were rhisomes. So these Iris' follow me wherever I go. Added to the garden this year were some from my friends Lora and Knight. So the love is growing! I love the sharing of bulbs and plants with friends. You are giving them something that can grow and flourish. Something that will cause you to think of them even more than you do. Next spring will be great no doubt!

I am gearing up for Thanksgiving, and a trip home to be with family. I am going to have to miss Aunt Connie's Turkey Day, which is a bummer. But I will be at Momma Jo's and I am also hosting a 50th Bday Party for my Mom! So it will still be a weekend of seeing almost everyone!
