Look at me! Say hello:)

Do I look pretty or what? Thanks to Ragan at Blogger Boutique (http://www.bloggerboutique.com/), she's responsible for all you see here. I just love it, my favorite colors, and random patterns, and for Josie, butterfly's.

That said, I was checking my stats today and noticed that I have new readers. Australia popped up in the countries listing for the first time, as did Sweden (hello Gail!). There's someone reading in Israel, someone in the UK, Las Vegas, Montana (Jackie is that you?), Tel Aviv, it is just so cool. It's also humbling to think that there are lots of people out there who take time out of their day to read whats up with us in the middle of the wheat fields. I mean, the idea that me, stay home mommy/farmer's wife is writing something that they are reading in the Middle East just blows my mind.

So, I've seen people do this before. If you've never stopped in and said hello please do, I'd love to know who's reading, and have to say, thank you for taking the time. The comments setting on this blog allows anyone to post, you don't necessarily have to have a blogger account. So, please stop in and say hello, I'd love to meet you!

shan-your blog looks awesome. i love it so. your photos are beautiful, but I have to tell you, the family photo in the field is incredible. Aesthetically, it is pretty, but it is so much more. You can see the love, acceptance, and happiness in all of you...just in that one moment.
So simple, and yet so complicated. Love you.

I hope you and yours are well today! Big hugs & Prayers.

I found your blog some time ago through Trish My New Normal. Her daughter and my son have the same genetic condition. Your girls are beautiful and I love to read of your strength. All the blogs I read help me to be thankful of the good days and reassure me I'm not alone
