Somerset Life is such an inspiring and beautifully put together magazine...
Every issue I have seen is lush and lovely. The pages are ever so exquisite. It's one of those magazines that you want to hide out with, and immerse yourself in.
It even inspired me to doodle on my hand :)
But why such excitement over the current summer issue you ask?
Why, it's because we got to be a part of it, and are sooooo excited!!
My mom and sis picked up a copy at Michael's craft store.
You can find the issue many other places, or order online (summer 2012).
If you get the chance and are interested, I would just love for you to jump in and read. And maybe, just maybe, you will feel the vibe of what I speak of, and how you have helped create the feeling.
The blogosphere has changed so much over the last year.
Slowly, people have come and gone.
Lives get busy, interests change.
One thing for sure is...
I am so overjoyed that so many of us are still out here.
Yay for that!
I love when folks stop by to say hello, because truly, when you say hello and let me know you are out there, I am inspired to continue writing and sharing and snapping photos.
Inspired to continue coming here several times a week.
And I especially love, when folks who have stopped blogging, start again.
It's sooo good to have you back!
I have such a tender spot in my heart, and feel like I know so many of you, and that, in some way we are really connected. I wonder if you feel the same way too?
Thank you for that.
Thank you for being here.
And so, I wrote this article about you and me, and how we found our way to this funny little virtual world called the internet, and through it, to like minded souls. It's a gift, and a miracle, this internet thing, isn't it?
I hope that in some little way, through searching for inspirations myself, I have imparted even a tinge of inspiration to you. Because honestly, your words and kindness inspire me.
Yes I am a sentimental sap.
Ah well, could be worse.
I love the sharing of dreams...
Whether dreams are big or small, or outrageous one and all - each one matters.
Each dream counts.
Each hope goes out into the air and spins around - and if you hold on...
Somehow, believe can turn into is.
I have learned that the little dreams are crucial.
Day to day hopes and dreams, that really do come true.
Let's never forget those, whatta ya say?
And maybe, just maybe...
You'll plunge into doodle hands and glitter feet?
(if you haven't already that is)
Who knows, maybe one day we can meet for a doodlefest.
Faces, arms, toes....
In the meantime, if you happen to doodle on yourself, good golly, you simply must let me know!
Thank you for you.
Let's keep the fun super alive, shall we?
Oh also, I will be giving away a copy of this issue. All you have to do is say hello in comments, and I will enter your name into a hat. I'll draw a name for the next post.
