Yes, I can!

Today I want to share some exciting news with you. Recently I was invited to join Vision and Verb, one of my very favorite blogs. It is a collaboration of "women of a certain age" and its collaborators are a pretty international crowd. Back in September I wrote my very first guest post for V&V. Shortly after that Marcie Scudder sent me an email asking me whether I'd like to join.

This was the first time that my reaction was not "I can't do that" but instead a loud and clear "Yes, I want to do that!". Yes, it is a challenge for me and I'm a little bit scared, but at the same time I'm mighty excited.

One thing is sure: Your support has helped me a lot to get here. I was pretty intimidated when I started the whole blogging thing (thanks Kelly Rae!) back in July (only three and a half months ago, can you believe it?) and you came along with your openness, kindness and friendship.

My hope is that you will visit me at V&V (I'll be there every other week or so, starting this coming Saturday) and love that blog just as much as I do. And of course you will always find me here at my own blog.


Have a wonderful week and enjoy the autumn colors!

Go for it, I'm looking forward to it! Stunning pic.

Wow! So awesome. Congratulations Carola. You will add much to Vision and Verb. Your tree and leaves photo is beautiful!

By the way, you are the winner on my blog of my "Pumpkins" limited edition print. I have sent you a couple emails apologizing for the confusion with my blog. There's still a few things not working correctly with my blog, one of them being the scheduler. I should have left the post up even though it posted at the wrong time, but I didn't think anyone had read it. I have very few people reading my blog, so I didn't think it was a big deal to take it down and re-post it the next day when it should have posted. If you would like to claim your winnings please email me. Thanks Carola! And again congrats on Vision and Verb.
