  3. Dear Dawn,

    Two things I’m grateful for today. One is that our furnace is fixed and the second was following your links and finding out that you had AOMOC on your list of your favorite books of 2017. I enjoyed your beautiful photos, too. You do have a photographic eye.

    • Thank you Rochelle. I’m so glad to have you see past my weekly100 word offerings, which quite frankly, as of late, have been rather disappointing.
      BUT,,,I shan’t give up. Tomorrow may be my masterpiece! 😉


  4. Love your list, Dawn! I just wrote mine (haven’t posted it yet) and wanted to take a break before adding links and images so I went to Facebook where I saw yours 😉
    I am officially a follower of your blog. So beautiful.
