A few things to chat about….(plus the giveaway winners)

First of all, thanks so much for all the tips, advice and emails regarding my Blog Issues that I shared yesterday.  I will look into all those feed suggestions you mentioned.  And I have a long list of names who I’m looking through to help me with tech issues and let me tell you…….I’m so grateful for these contacts that I now have.  I’m trying to respond to everyone, so you should see an email from me sometime this week.  Wow.  Thanks again……I didn’t know the response would be so helpful. :)


One more thing.  Have I told you we’re moving?  Again?  Yes…..what are we thinking?  I’ve been blogging for, I don’t know, 4 years.  And during that time, we’ve moved, I don’t know, 4 times!!!! (plus 3 other times before I started blogging)  But this time, we’re moving into a home that we’re buying.  Our very first home.  We’re thrilled.  I opened up my inbox this morning and saw that Pick Your Plum was offering those rubber address stamps and for some reason, my stomach turned to spaghetti noodles……..because now we can finally etch our very own address into one of those rubber stamps.  So, I bought 2!  YAY!!!!  I can’t wait to start painting.  And decorating.  And tearing things down……meh, just because we want to.  Ahhhh.  So exciting.  But things will be a little crazy around these parts during April because yep, the Johnston’s are moving again.


But, I have a few Easter things to share during the rest of the week.  Stay tuned. :)
