A giveaway for Happy 100...


...Posts to me! When I started this adventure in blogging I had no expectations. I knew I liked to read other people's blogs and thought it might be fun to have a blog. I'd tried blogging a couple of other times and really didn't find a voice. I gave those attempts up quickly. But somehow the voice of Buttercup stuck and six months later, 100 posts and genuine friends all over the world, I'm still here and enjoying the blogging adventure enormously.

The winter of 2009, for which I'd had such great hopes, had its large measure of sorrow. And yet when I came here I would look to blessings. Some days they were hard to find, but I looked hard and one of the great pleasures of this year was finding blessings all around New York City and being able to share those blessings with all of you who stop here and visit.

Dear Gentle readers, I can't thank you enough for sweet comments, funny comments and for stopping by and just saying hello. I'd like to share "firefly lane" with one dear and gentle reader. Please leave a comment if you are interested in receiving a copy by Saturday, July 11 and I will draw a name. Let me know if you link to this post, that will count as two entries. "firefly lane" is a great summer read and I am happy to pass it on. It's a small way of saying thank you.

It's amazing how people that you have never met can quickly feel like they are family. Blog family! You read about their lives everyday and they share their photos and ideas so you just feel like you get to know them. Blog buddies are awesome, kind & supportive!
Happy 100th Buttercup!

Happy 100th! That is quite an accomplishment. The Blog World makes the Real World a little smaller and a little friendlier.

100 is a huge accomplishment. I've had many days where blogging has escaped me but then after a small break I'm back again. Congrats and can't wait to see future blogs.
