Our first Blogiversary Celebration!
Whew!! What a week!
Happy Blogiversary An Extraordinary Day!
All week long we’ve been partying to the hilt.
And boy, has it been fun!
Just to add to the fun and my appreciation of you.
I’m finishing the week with this lovely photo of apple blossoms. And…
The fun part is that you can click here for an 8×10 to print,
or here for a free desktop background. I hope you enjoy either or both.
What day was my actual blogiversary?
Though my first published post was April 29, 2012…technically Sunday was my blog anniversary day. Why do I say that? Because my first post was a Sunday…Joy Day! post. I don’t think I have missed a single Joy Day! post this whole year. That in itself is a personal accomplishment.
All that being said…this is the graphic from Sunday’s Joy Day! post. I have been amazed at how popular it has been. When I went to grab the link I saw that it had been pinned 338 times. Wow! I wish I could see how that happens. Anyway…I really liked it and I’m thrilled that others do too. The best part…God gets the glory all the way around.

One more thing….
Sorry this post is late today….I had a little idea that I’d been wanting to do for the last week or so. It involves crab apple blossoms, but the wind has been busy being windy this week and I had to snip some branches, finish my idea, and shoot it this morning or the whole idea would have to be put on hold for a while. The light was good this morning so I chose blossoms over finishing this post on time. I think you’ll be glad I did. However, if you usually have coffee and read The Week at a Glance each Saturday…I hope you forgive my tardiness.
Wishing you an Extraordinary weekend!
