Ultimate Blog Party- Welcome to My World

Happy Ultimate Blog Party Week!

5m4m_ubp_400x130 Thank you so much for stopping by. If you don’t know what the Ultimate Blog Party is about, see below for more details and where to go to learn more.

Stop by my $15 Amazon card giveaway to leave a comment and/or guess where the picture was taken! A winner will be drawn from the entries on Friday, March 14.

Now about me, I am a writer-in-training stretching her wings through the blogging world while a few children’s books fly around in my head waiting to land. Some have already been formed into chapters and some have far to go.

I have two wonderful girls from whom I get much bloggy fodder. I have a wonderful husband who has his own podcast with a friend. See the link in the sidebar for The Handyguys Podcast. Feel free to check out the 100 things about me to learn more.

I have only been a full-time blogger since January but I am already addicted to the fun memes, carnivals, giveaways, devotionals and so many ways to connect with women around the world. People have so many interesting things to say from their point of view or experience. It is also a fun way to keep in touch with family and friends around the country.

Each day I wonder what I will write about tomorrow and it is amazing what comes to laugh or joke about and enjoy putting in words. It has been a fun way to chronicle this journey and I greatly appreciate you joining me in it.

Keep check back this week for all kinds of good stuff!

Check out other Ultimate Blog Party Participants at 5 Minutes for Mom. There are lots of great giveaways, etc. There so many awesome prize choices. If I had to pick, I would pick the following:

INTL 1&2 – Mary DeMuth’s Conversation Starters or Nonfiction Proposal Writing.

#107 – $15 Gift Card to Starbucks and other travel info at Mel’s World Travel Biz

#63 – $50 worth of American girl sized items at Emily Rose.

#93 – one of Rebecca’s Originals.

or anything money or gift card related! Thanks Pamela from Happy Panda for coordinating all these giveways!

PS. Let your love be extravagant, your words eloquent and your eyes lifted to the heavens in praise of the Lord alone.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16 (NKJV)
