Yep…that’s the number of followers I now have. The face above is one of joy, gratitude & friendship…I can’t thank you enough. I love being here…I thought I’d take a step back, I was feeling down…and discovered it only made me feel worse. You’re my online family now and I take that very much to heart.

So I’m a little uninspired, so what. I’m going to plow through it gently because I missed you, missed you A LOT. And it was only one day! LOL.

Amazeballs. My new favorite word (Ryan ☺)

God love and bless yas all!

    IDK how many follwers I’ve had since I’ve been on WordPress. I’ve had accounts on Myspace, Yahoo!360, Tumblr (I’m off and on with them to this day), Blogger/Blogspot, but WP has been by my side for six years strong now. And alluva sudden, within the past year, maybe longer, I’ve been getting feedback on my blog left and right. IDK what happened, and I won’t complain, either. I am happy of the feedback that I’ve received. The last thing I’ll ever do is take it for granted! I’m enjoying this as much as you are.

      Thanks Suzette! Always a pleasure to hear from you. It wasn’t long ago I had 26 followers if I can do it so can you ☺. I agree…I can’t not respond makes no sense to me. There are blogs I’ve unfollowed because they don’t interact. Not my bag. I really had no idea what to expect when I started…now I have this amazing community I love sharing with…it’s been so good for my mental health ☺ meeting people like yourself, it’s the bomb xo
