A Newbie Linky Partay!

If there is a party for blogs, less than 6 months old and with less than 100 followers, then my name is definitely on the invite list!  I started blogging last August after faithfully reading home blogs for several months.  I was so inspired and enthused about the sharing and learning process I wanted to jump in!  I am currently in a job search which can become very frustrating and tedious.  I hoped the blogging process would give me a creative outlet and it has. 

Let me take this time to tell you a little more about me.  

I am from south Georgia.  
Although my husband says, "girl, you aren't from south Georgia,  you're from the coast"!

I really love my home and look forward to sharing more of it with you in the days ahead.  We have done a ton of renovation to it and several projects are still hanging.

I have done a fair amount of traveling and lived in Europe for a few years as a missionary.

I cannot go to sleep each night without slathering my lips with Blistex.   
(I have 4 unopened cartons just so I won't run out)

Together, my husband and I have 6 grown children and two wonderful grandchildren.

I am currently reading One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp.  
(Anyone else?  Learned about it from The Nester.  I am certain I will blog about this) 

I have not cooked a Paula Deen recipe that my family 
didn't love and beg me to cook again.  Really! 
(maybe that is a southern thing)

We have a Pomeranian and his name is Toby.   
He is 15 years old and the sweetest dog I have ever owned!

I believe that Every Day is a Gift from God.  
Precious.  Priceless.  Ready to be unwrapped and lived to the fullest.

I hope you will join me in this blogging journey.  
I look forward to connecting and growing together.  

It is definitely a home blog, but it is about my life in my home.  

Now it is your turn!  Tell me something about you!  Libby!~
