I really had so much fun this week, and ran the gamut of emotions from laughing delightedly to being just a wee bit choked up :-) What an involving journey. I loved that there were names I haven't encountered before, it's always so fun to find new, and interesting blogs. Plus, there were some familiar names too, so it was like visiting known friends too.

Great fun! Thank you, Hilary. I do love that you, and the people who recommend posts, find things I really would miss otherwise...and I'd be the poorer for missing them.

Mage said...

Thank you for introducing us to all these nice folks and their days. :)

Unknown said...

Oh I love all the new blogs you've introduced me to.

Thanks to Daryl for including me...that girl is so easy to please! She's the best.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Thank you Hilary. I am flattered and very touched at being selected as the POTW. I am in very good company with the other great blog nominations. And thanks for highlighting Stone Spirit. I think Izzy wrote a fabulous post.

Hope your week is going good. You made mine!

What a great idea; I love it.

May said...

I visited here a little ago and I been planning to return. I simply love you posts and this post as well. Thanks for the lovely tour and the beautiful sights. My ex-husband used to drive across country and I can remember him driving to Canada a few time. He would always bring me something from there. I wanted to share this story because many of things he brought me I still use and wear them. That's been 15 years ago.
Have a great day.
