According to Blogger, this is my 1000th post. Who would have thought I'd have 1000 posts worth of things to say (actually, anyone who knows me well may not be surprised)?!
This blogging experience has morphed over the years. It began as a way to keep out of town (and state) family up on what we were doing and to keep a record of our experiences (and it remains this for us). Then, people I didn't know started reading it and, to be honest, it felt kind of weird at the time! Over the past five years there have been times when I tried to anticipate what the readers would like to read but for the most part I've stayed true to letting this space follow where my head and heart lead, asking God to use me to encourage others. That's when I enjoy it the most.
During my August hiatus I discovered something. I need breaks as much as I need blogging. And so, I'm planning another month long hiatus in December, another in the spring and another next August. But, oh, how I miss being away on these breaks! And, so....
To celebrate this (ridiculous) number of posts and the fact that we're back together again, I am giving away two (2) of my cookbooks this week. And, lucky for all of us, the printer made a slight (albeit a good) error and this 7th edition comes with a clear plastic cover to help protect it from spills. The two giveaway copies have this cover! If you'd like to order a copy, please note in your order that you'd like a clear plastic cover and my shipping manager (the always lovely, Kathy) will make sure you get one at no extra cost:-). It's never too early to start Christmas shopping! Don't forget you can also buy an e-version for your Kindle or computer if you prefer.
In the comments, please tell me what you did during the month of August. One entry per household, please. Please leave me your first name or your initials so I can identify you if you win. I'll randomly select two winners this Friday afternoon.
Have a wonderful day!
