Hello everyone! I am thrilled to have you visit with me and I hope you enjoy your stay. I absolutely love company, sharing, and making new friends so I hope you find something here that inspires, motivates, or just pleases you in some way.

Of course, I love to visit and be inspired also. So if I don't already drop in on you, please let me know where I can find you and I'll hop on over to see what you're doing or to just say "hi".

Before you go, I would love it if you'd please leave me a comment letting me know you dropped in! Actually, I'd just love to hear from you -- comments, opinions, or questions you'd like me to answer.

In the meantime, relax and make yourselves at home... you're family here!!!

I'll be seeing you!

Hello, everyone!  As I always pray, I hope all's well in the neighborhood!

I'm asking a moment because, as most of you have probably heard as of March 1, non-Google members will no longer be a part of the Google Friends Connect.  So, in an attempt to avoid losing touch, as I'm visiting with you I'll be looking for your alternative "follow me" connection and signing up; I am also sooo hoping you will do the same with me.

I have come to love you all and do not want to be disconnected from you and/or you from me.   Therefore, I hope you will consider locating and following me through the Linky connection on my sidebar on the right-hand side of my blog page.  You may not believe it but I really do consider you family and I wouldn't want to miss not one of you who are non-Google family-friends -- ever!

As, I also understand, Google Friends Connect will eventually disappear altogether; therefore, Google platform followers can also just sign up on Linky anyway; that way it'll be already done when Friends Connect is no longer available.  That's what I'm going to do!!!

I hope the Google transition from "Friends Connect" to your preferred alternative is a smooth one, and that we'll always be in touch and able to connect!!!

Thank you for your time.

Hugs, and I'll be seeing you!

Hi sweet lady!
I had no idea about this google change. I have really not been paying as much attention.
I for one do not want to miss out on what you share with us so I will do whatever it takes.
Thanks for letting us in on this info.
Appreciate you much!

So frustrating when things like this change! I just can't keep up.

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

ummmm.... I wonder what i did wrong here, I followed the steps of LINKY and though I am on there, let me check my emails and see if I need to click on something in order to complete????
Thanks for letting me know though.
