Gratitude......and a little frosting on top.

I wanted to let you know, my lovely readers, that I truly appreciate you! I might not always tell you, but I do.
I occasionaly get letters from you, and that makes my day. Knowing that I am reaching out to you, really makes me thankful that i have you to tell all about my happenings.
So, thank you dear reader!
I also wanted to fill you in on something special! I believe I am coming on my 100th post!!
Now, that calls for a celebration don't you think?? So................keep checking back, and we will see what it will be............................

Dear Kasey,

Here I am...a girl completely new to the computer. I just got internet for the first time last week and I am trying to create a website for an online store that my sister in law and I are trying to start. I was surfing around doing research and found the farm chicks. They seem really great. I found your sites from theirs. The first time I clicked on your blog and that music started...I was mesmerized! I put the blog on my "favorites star" and kept finding myself returning to hear Regina. You have me completely hooked on her music. I can't get it out of my head.
I love your website. It is beautiful. It's like opening the page of a really good scrapbook.
I too am 34. I am the mother of 2 lovely girls, 7 and 5. I love all things French, the color white, and being outdoors.
My family and I live in a 1901 Craftsman house in Missouri. I love our old house...it took me two years to talk my husband into it and it was worth the wait. It is a work in progress but so satisfying to finish each project.
It has been fun to look through your decorating ideas, and your photography is enviable. (I don't have a digital camera yet-that is next on my list to update me into this century)
Anyway, I just wanted to tell you that I've enjoyed the reading and have been inspired.
Best Wishes,

Hi Kasey!

It is true what has been said about you being an inspiration to people. Reading your blog has been a great experience for me too.

I love it and always enjoy listening to the music. Your blog was the first one I read and it is my favorite.

I love your on line store too. It would be great to have the music there too.

All the best to you and your family,
