Why I love blogging.

Whats in a name?
That which we call a rose. By any other name would smell as sweet.

William Shakespeare ~ Romeo and Juliet.

We can visit wonderfully sweet places and meet talented people at the click of a button.
Each day I know when I turn on my computer, something special is waiting for me there.
There is so much inspiration and creativity and it is a blessing and a reminder to us all, that we are here to make our life the best we can.

Thank you for the encouraging words you leave and for your friendship.
Your comments always warm my heart and bring a smile to my face.

I am still playing around with my new camera and I hope to learn some more and try for some better photos.
I hope that you are having a lovely weekend.



  1. I love blogging for the same reasons and for the friends I make. I do believe we are in excellent company and I'm so glad for your friendship!

  5. Hi Carolyn, I too love all the inspiration and creativity out there in blogland and I would have never thought that blogging would bring so many new friends from all over the world into my life :-).
    Have a lovely Sunday, dear friend!

  6. and because you can meet up with your oldest and bestest friends from childhood. I have been thinking of you especially in the last few days. It is a hard time for both of us as we share a special anniversary. All my love is with you and your family .

  7. Lovely post Carolyn, I agree there is so much creativity I spend more time reading and not enough time actually blogging. Just get so caught up with so many talented artists. We are so fortunate to live in these times when we have all this at the click of a mouse. Happy week ahead Robynxx

  18. Friendship is some-thing I didn't expect to find when I first started posting my french travel photo's. But I now have so many lovely friends I think of you all as my pen~pals across the seas. You were one of the first bloggers to leave comments on my site Carolyn, and that encouraged me to continue. Thank You for that.

  19. Mmmm, and you smell heavenly, too! Thank you, dear Carolyn, for giving me my NZ excursions. I LOVE that you are enjoying your new camera!
