My Blog Anniversary

" The beauty of getting older is the surprise of what you can create with what you have learned."
Goldie Hawn

Today is not only my birthday, but I also consider it my blog anniversary.  Two years ago I did a brave thing and went to a Blog Event.  I was just turning 55 and wanted to do something...to mark the occasion.  What I learned that day and the 2 years since has changed my life.  Not only the blogging itself, but how I go about my daily life.  I've always been observant, and appreciative of life, but this new way of chronicling it has opened my eyes to the extreme beauty of everyday.  I always wanted to journal, but never had the discipline to write everyday.  The words on paper never did what a blog post can do. The words with pictures...it can be powerful, silly, beautiful, informative.  It's a  thing I do for myself, but I am so happy to share it with you.  I love when someone else enjoys it too.

So today, I share with you something I love...This song, Montana Half Light.  I've never been to Montana, but this song speaks to me.  If I had a soundtrack to my life, this song would be track #1.  Enjoy this beautiful day!

I'm with you (about blogging) and Goldie Hawn (about aging --I should look so good!) I'm glad you went to the blog event, too. Otherwise I never would have met you!

Happy, happy birthday Penny!

hey penny--happy birthday, girl! you have such a wonderful blog--simple, tasteful and completely heartfelt. one true thing that you have managed to accomplish, beautifully, with your space, is to precisely convey your genuine persona through your written word and photos--it is obvious what a good woman you are, with a good family, to boot!! keep on posting!!
best, lisa (the frenchman's wife)
