Link Love

This week is a week of reflection: counting my blessings, thanking those who have helped me in innumerable ways, acknowledging progress - personal AND financial, redefining future goals - short and longterm and developing ideas that will hopefully benefit others.

So the first thing I want to do is give a big thank you to my online community.

The following are the top referring urls for my blog:

Thank you!!

A big virtual hug and thank you goes to Laura Jane at Whimfield who, back in August, posted a blogroll with my blog added to it. Then Witch came to visit and the rest is history. I checked out Laura Jane's and Witch's blogroll and found my way to all of you. And I am so grateful that I did!

I've had your support through the good times and the bad, I've made friends with women who are intelligent, thoughtful and thought-provoking, compassionate, helpful, funny and sincere.

I look forward to learning so much more in 2011 through my connection with all of you and I hope I can add something to the conversation. May the conversation be fierce, honest and productive...may we listen, challenge and grow together.

Have a wonderful and safe New Year celebration whatever that may look like. Going out or staying home, with friends or family, have a look around at all you have to be thankful for. We are blessed in so many ways.


  1. Jane, it's been a pleasure to discover your great blog and become virtual friends with you during the last half of 2010 :-) Usually when one blogger in the pf blogsphere discovers another good one, word spreads around fast, thankfully :-)

    Have a great week, enjoy the time off, and have fun reflecting! I'm going to do lots of that myself!

  2. Thanks for love. I am really happy to have found your blog and I feel the same way about all our blogging friends.

  3. I feel the same way! I brag that I have friends all over the world!

    It's been a pleasure and privilege getting to know you too, Jane. 2011 will be a great year!

  4. Jane,
    Thanks for the pat on the back. I so much enjoy you site and post.
    I'm glad to call you a friend and you never know our path's may cross one day and it will be a real blessing.

  5. I think I also owe a big thank you to Laura-Jane. I had much the same experience in that without Whimfield I would not have come across your blog, The Witch or peihome. It's so nice to meet local people and share our experiences. I look forward to reading more of your blog in the new year. Marguerite

  6. Jane you are a pleasure to follow and a pleasure to know, so I say straight back at you kid. Looking forward to sharing more of your Crofters Lane plans, maybe one day I,ll turn up on your door.

    By the way I added a comment on my blog regarding my retirement day.

  7. Thanks for the shout out Jane! I enjoy reading about all the happenings in the blogger world, and the feeling of a community, even if the majority of us may never cross paths in the real world.

    I honestly don't think that I would be as far into my journey with out the support of everyone out there in the cyber world!

  8. it has been so fun to get to know you! i look forward to a great new year! <3

  9. Aw... I feel honored to be named, even for something I didn't consciously do! ;o) We love your attractive and lively blog. It's always full of inspiration and real-life tidbits that are either interesting or useful! And how refreshing that you share so many pictures, which personalizes the blog so well! Even just the background makes it a blog worth clicking on just to see if anything is new!

  10. I love visiting your blog Jane! You write beautifully and you inspire me and others along the way. I feel a friendship with you that is being built over the internet. Who would have thought that two young girls of the 60's would be so technically advanced? :)

    I look forward to checking on your blog each day for inspiration and to see your beautiful pictures.


Thank you for your comment - it means a lot to me that you read my post and are leaving a comment - you just made my day!
