Happy Anniversary ~ Over at Julie's

Follow Me on Pinterest
It's hard to believe 1 year ago, today Over at Julie's began!
As I reflect back on those first couple of months when only family was reading my blog, I was struggling to find my writing style and get my thoughts written down only to have my blogging program crash over and over again, losing everything I'd written, night after night! Blogsy has taken great strides to improve their program, and I, for one, am exceedingly grateful!

Words can't begin to express the love and appreciation I have feel for my beloved Will's selfless devotion, encouragement, and computer skills . . . making Over at Julie's a reality! I am forever in your debt! Special thanks to my daughter, Deborah Joy for her continued prayers for the success in reaching out to the world via Over at Julie's. Of course Will and I are doubly grateful to our sons and daughters for having given us 7 wonderful grandkids! They love being photographed for my blog and having a "World Famous" status!

March 4, 2012 was a huge turning point. When I published "Easy Crock Pot Greek Yogurt", people began pinning it on Pinterest and a following from all over the globe became a reality!

Hoping to pass on "how to's" to make your life richer in this coming year. You have really challenged me to keep on studying and growing in The Art of Making it Homegrown, Homemade, Back to Basics.
