YES! It’s true ~ a whole year has passed since I started this blogging adventure ~ and in looking back over the year, I have been amazed by how much I have crammed in! So much good stuff ~ bringing balance and light and chasing away the yucky stuff. I make no apologies for the length of this little review ~ I enjoyed picking out some of my favourite photos from the past 12 months and hope you enjoy them too!
A year full of goodness, starting with …
~ the fabric ~
~ the sewing ~
~ the making ~
~ the beauty ~
~ the garden ~
~ the sky ~
~ the sunrise ~
~ the sunset ~
~ the walks with special people ~
~ the holidays and away~days ~
~ the flowers ~
~ and of course … the arrival of Tillie ~
ah, bless her sleepy head!
But there is more ~ blogging has given me a weekly opportunity to ‘see’ my life in a positive light ~ setting out on this journey I was very clear that I wanted to be able to reflect on the good things, to notice them, appreciate them, and really feel whatever it is that they bring into my life ~ and keeping this record here has really done that. Life is good. Life is also hard work, complicated, messy and sometimes just darn exhausting. But also, it is good. And focusing this blogging light onto the goodness really does make it grow. And that is good too.
And – yes – there is more ~ blogging has bought me connections, with other bloggers, other makers and creative folks, with readers and subscribers ~ and connections are good too.
Haha – oh yes – there is even more ~ the lemon loves journey has grown beyond this blog, first to Flickr, then to facebook and now to the lemon loves online shop. I know! And yes, I do feel mightily chuffed!
And finally – yes – just a little bit more ~ there are you guys! And I have been so surprised and encouraged by your support, either here, by reading or commenting, or in any of those other places where lemon loves has spread it’s wings. And in real life too. Thank you. Very much.
