  1. Hey, really wonderful and superb blog. Thanks for sharing this lovely post.

    1. How kind.... your use of the word 'superb.' Brings a smile to my face. Thank you for taking the time to leave encouragement.


  2. Howdy! Does the frequency of updating your website depend on something or you compose blog articles when you have a specific mood or you create if you have time? Waiting forward to hear from you.

    1. Just found your question -- all these weeks later. The answer is yes! I need to have both time and some great visuals to share. I don't really have a formula. I used to feel compelled to write something every day. I'm now attempting to focus more on the quality of every article over a compulsion to get something uploaded. Hope that helps.

      Thanks for stopping by!



I LUV to hear from you! Please leave your thoughts so we can interact!!

Thanks for your support! I am so appreciative of your pins!
