  1. Thank you so much for including my blog on the list.  I enjoy reading your blog as well.

  2. Thank you for including me in your list Rhonda! I like the way you described my blog, too. You are certainly one of my own must reads and I need to add you to my own Links page. You're right, you come across new blogs and abandon others and I had just forgotten to add you to my list! I am off to rectify that and to read some of your other suggestions. What Happens at Grandma's is one of my favorites but I'm not familiar with the others. Thanks again!

  3. Rhonda, my friend, what a lovely compliment! I am so pleased and humbled to be part of your "must read" blog list! Thank you!
    I had a chance to scan the list of new posts, and I caught "Amaraland" on your summary. I hurried over to tell you that she is a favorite of mine, too….and then I saw my own site listed! Such a sweet surprise!
    For the record, I read you faithfully as well. Your grandchildren are adorable, your crafty ideas are classy and your gardening tips and recipes are welcomed. I like your frank and honest commentary on life too! Hmmm….I've never thought to make a fave list of my own, but sounds like you'd be on it if I did! And of course, the delightful Kc at Amaraland!
