Hello! It's good to see you again!
For those stopping by from the Vicki's 2 Bags Full Grow Your Blog party, it's incredibly nice to meet you!
I have something fabulous in store for one of you lovelies (squeal!)
Anyone can enter for the giveaway!!!
but we'll get to that in just a bit...
Morning Glories and Moonflowers-
Where did it come from?
About 8 years ago (has it been that long?) a friend of mine told me about her blog. A blog? Huh? So I stopped by for a peek and was impressed. A journal of my life? Who would read that? But I decided I had nothing to lose! What to name it, though?
We were growing morning glories and moonflowers in our backyard and I loved the idea of something beautiful having a chance to shine in the morning and another pretty showcased in the evening. I wanted my blog to be like that. Happy words/pictures for those reading it during the day and something delightful for friends taking a peek at night, too.
Perfect is boring is my life. I often want it to be perfect but where's the fun in that? It's so much more fun to have a reality check along with a few giggles!
I spend a large portion of my day home schooling these two cuties! We have fun wherever we go- even at Goodwill! Personally, I prefer to conduct my treasure hunts at TJ Maxx, but I'm always up for a good neighborhood yard sale. (As long as we drive through Starbucks on the way.)
My name is Lori and I'm addicted to books.
No, I really am.
You should see my kindle. Is there a limit to samples downloaded from amazon? I aim to find out. If there was only time enough to read all that I want to. sigh... Good thing I have to leave the house to go to Starbucks and the grocery store- occasionally. If I weren't married I'd probably be a hobbit. Reading by the fire, second breakfasts and all that. When my door bells rings I roll my eyes and sigh. Unless it's the UPS guy delivering a book from amazon. It's a wonder I have friends.
I have a little etsy shop called Too Silly Sisters. Since I've taken up book reviewing I haven't had time to fill my shop. My beads and fabric have been calling my name for awhile now. I think they've given up on me but their time will come...
I have met the nicest people in blogland. Believe it or not, I've vacationed with some of them! I tell people this and I wonder what they think. If you don't blog you just can't understand. No, I don't give out information freely. I'm quite private. It usually starts with emailing and then sometimes you end up talking on the phone. After a few years you meet up (if you're lucky) and always, always have the best time! It's a relationship that takes years to nurture but it's amazing how many incredible friends I've made since I became a blogger. Some of my best friends are bloggy friends that have turned into family.:)
