Being back on the blogs is so wonderfully inspiring.
Those who have never been here just don't get it.
Recently I have been cleaning out my blog reading list.
Oh my goodness... there were so many.
It's been more then 10 years since I started collecting blogs to read and the list of blogs that I was following was in the hundreds.
I found that having a list so long was making it difficult for me to keep up with everyone who was still current.
So I started going through and cleaning up the list.
Sadly, so many of my favorite bloggers have abandoned their blogs for years now. It makes you wonder what happened to them.
Did they, like me, just get lazy and found an outlet in social media?
Did their lives become too busy?
Or did something else happen...
One of my absolute favorite bloggers has been missing for about 5 years. The last time we privately spoke she told me that she was battling bladder cancer and that she didn't want to "contaminate" her beautiful blog with the ugly sickness. Eventually her blog and our emails just stopped and was left thinking the worst. To this day, I still wonder what happened to her and I still visit her abandoned blog for inspiration. Beautiful Kary, if you can hear me out there, you will always be my blog goddess!!!
And then there are some of you who just keep on chugging along.
You words and ideas never disappoint and I am in awe of your commitment. The recipes, decorations, stories of your family.. they never get old.
You inspire my life and creativity like no other outlet .
while this post was started to share Sally and my Valentines cookies.. it has completely morphed into something else.
I just want to say, thank you to all of the wonderful (real life) bloggers out there who have inspired me for years.
Y'all are my hero's!!
