Three Candles Mean...





It's my third blogaversary. Happy birthday to Buttercupland! 

And my blogging goal for 2010...to keep blogging, even when I come home at night and I'm tired and not very inspired. To be a good friend to my blog friends around the world and to keep my focus on all that is good and positive and joyful. Here's to 2010 and all the friendship and wonder and surprises that are yet to be discovered.  And now let's party!

This is what I wrote two years ago and posted again last year. It still rings true in 2012 and I am happy to recommit to the same goals. Thanks for laughter, support, encouragement, prayer and friendship. It has been a wonderful year in Buttercupland. I became "Aunt Buttercup" to sweet Rocky, spent time with Pat and Lorraine in New York and loved every second of BlogHer and meeting Lura and John in San Diego.   

I love poetry and some of my favorite lines are these by Robert Browning, "Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be..." So it is in Buttercupland. The best is yet to be! Every thanks for the year past and every dream and prayer for the year ahead. The best is yet to be.

Happy Anniversary to you..I think I must be coming up on my 3rd year also but ...I need to check. Funny you should mention pj's..that is the one thing I could use. I'm just staying out of the stores..seems that is the only way I cannot buy something. Soap doesn't count!
