A Decade of Blackberry Rambles


"Never lose an opportunity for seeing anything beautiful...." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

It's now been ten years since I started this blog! Considering those ten years amount to 1/4 of my life, it's a little scary how fast they went! It's been fun to have a place all my own to publish photos and quotes, book reviews and thoughts about life. I also find it special that some of the bloggers I met during my first few months of blogging are still friends!

Of course this kind of a milestone calls for a Giveaway! -- Just a little something I can tuck into a padded envelope and send someone's way. Leave a comment and I'll choose a winner on July 24th. (And I'm afraid the cost of postage is going to limit this to the USA and Canada.)

Thanks to all of you who have encouraged me over these years of blogging!

I thoroughly enjoy your blog, though I must confess I'm a tad envious of all your talents (knitting, painting, cooking) and have no clue as to how you find the energy to do all! I enjoy your book reviews and seeing your picnics, parties & celebrations of your family. It would be a delight to meet you & share tea & pastries. Congrats on a decade of sharing!

Goodness, Heather, is it really 10 years. I remember some of your first posts, Rachel was little and now she is a young lady. I was writing about my teenagers at the time and now they are grown. I've so enjoyed the glimpses into your lives.
