So, when I started this site, I assumed that the blogging world would be much the same as my previous work experiences – everyone out for themselves & a breeding ground for extreme cattiness. But, I have been pleasantly surprised to discover it is the exact opposite. There is an incredible network of bloggers out there who have embraced me (though I am the “new girl”), welcomed me into their club & even helped me promote my site. You probably know who you are, but I’m going to give you a shout-out anyway:
In our house, we work hard to instill in our children a spirit of gratefulness – for the things they have, for presents they receive & for the people around them who enrich their lives. As their mother, I want to make sure that I am setting a good example for them in this area & practicing what I preach. So, thanks to all of you (even those not mentioned here) who have embraced me with kindness & helped me along the way…it has not gone unnoticed & will not soon be forgotten.
