July already? A look back on June…

Time flies by, doesn’t it? It’s back to the old feeling that life comes in seasons, and time waits for no man. I started June off with such great intentions of writing something here everyday. Ha.

Until Midsummer’s Eve … Continue reading I am looking out over June, and imagining the possibilities. Who’s with me?

When I started up my A Weekend With… series I had a few blog heroes that I wanted desperately to feature.

Jane no longer writes her blog, due to reasons she’ll explain below, but it’s still there in … Continue reading A Weekend With…. Jane Goble of Posy
