Sharing the Love

Want to meet our friends?  I know that you do.  Many of them have amazing blogs with beautiful stories to tell.  These are my cosmic twins, soul siblings, and sources of joy.  One moment with them and you’ll see why I profess my loyalty to their zany, creative, and positively lovely selves.  They are not in any order because…. well, because I am not very organized in the braincase but they have all decided to hang in there with me nevertheless.  Thank goodness they have.  What would I do without them?  Seriously.  Actually, I don’t want to know.  *Just keep swimming, just keep swimming*

  • gingela5 - Awww thanks for the link love friend! 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Meadowlark - Wow. The list is impressive and I’m beyond honored to be included. Found some neat sites that I wouldn’t have otherwise. And THAT is what I love most about the blogging world.

    Peace to you, my friend.ReplyCancel

  • Heidi - Wonderful, wonderful list!ReplyCancel

  • Barb - Your list is great Lacy! You, yourself, have touched so many lives! I am truly honored to have “met” you, and hope someday, somehow, somewhere…I can REALLY meet you and give you & Josh a huge hug!
    Now, I need to go meet some of your friends & family.
    Have a great day!
    Momma BarbReplyCancel

  • YDavis - Have I told you lately that YOU ROCK LIKE KISS????
    Thank you for linking me. I guess we should thank our goldens for our friendship. If it’s not for them and our love for Goldens, I wonder if we would have ever “met”.ReplyCancel

  • Laurie - You are so sweet for including me in your list. You certainly have lots of blog friends and otherwise. I will be back (probably lots) to this post to check out some or all of these folks. My goodness, if I did it in one sitting, though, Jeff would be pretty upset when he gets home and there’s no supper to be had!

    Thank you so much for including me. That really, really makes my day!ReplyCancel

  • Jeni Hill Ertmer - Thanks for the shout-out and linky love there! Just reading down your list reminds me of the number of bloggers on my reader! I think we are both hitting about close to the same number of bloggers there! A bit daunting at times -but using reader to manage it makes it all a bit easier then!

  • Jennifer - WOW THANK YOU MA’AM!!!!!
    You sure have a BIG FAMILY!!!

    Jennifer and SandiReplyCancel

  • Michele - We may not meet in person but that makes us no less friends. Thank you for including me. Sending big hugs to you and Josh.ReplyCancel

  • Paula - Wow! Thanks so much for including me on your list of friends! Back at you. As I’m reading this list, I’m seeing so many people I don’t know and I want to go visit them all! Must have taken you forever to link all that.
    I noticed on Stacey’s blog you mentioned that you were going to tell a ghost story but I can’t find it. Will you let me know where it is on your site? I’d love to read it!ReplyCancel

  • Ann - Wow.
    I got shivers reading that – simply from the beautiful and heartfelt and personal things you’ve said about people. You are, as always, JUST LOVELY.

    Thank you, my dear, for such wonderful words. You know what’s interesting? You’re the 2nd person this month to compare me to David Sedaris…how coincidental is that?ReplyCancel

  • Barbie - Oh wow! I made your list. 🙂 I’m glad to be your friend, Lacy.ReplyCancel

  • Paulette - Awww, you are so sweet. I am honored to make your list.

  • Julie at Elisharose - Well, aren’t you just the sweetest thing. Thank you so much. I’m so proud to be your pal.ReplyCancel

  • Linda Sue - Shucks ma’am – I’m a little surprised and very pleased – I think of your blog as visiting a friend also! Of course I’m not so good about posting often and so interesting! Just read about testing soil – you are smart cookies you are! Good list – lots of variety and one constant – all good folks.ReplyCancel

  • Tipper - How nice are you!!! Thank you for the shout out, the linky love, and the very sweet compliment.ReplyCancel

  • Holly - Awwww – what a sweetheart you are, Lacy. *hug* *smooch* I don’t remember you linking me to this, but I’m sure glad you dropped by to give me more specific directions on how to get here – my “braincase” ain’t workin’ so right either, lately. 😀

    Thankyou for including me in your list, my friend. You have blessed me… *hug*ReplyCancel

  • ToilingAnt - Wow, thanks for the link and kind words. 🙂

    I’ve read through your adoption posts… how exciting! I can’t wait to hear when you bring your kids home. 😀ReplyCancel

  • Aly in GA - Thanks for the love and link, Lacy! You’re such a sweetheart and I hope that one day we can get our families together for a meet n’ greet. I know my boys would love running through your woods and I’m sure my husband would love to pick your husband’s brain about chickens and coops and such (as the boys grow, we’re considering investing in some egg layers – between your success and Robyn’s!)

    Hope you’re enjoying your weekend. Both Lil D and myself are under the weather at the moment – he on the mend, and me wanting nothing more than a pillow and some peace. But this too shall pass and tomorrow will dawn brighter and full of hope.

    Peace and Blessings, Lacy!

  • Jana - Thanks love! We are totally soul sistas! I just imagine myself sitting in your kitchen making soap and you teaching me how to can, laughing and talking. Why can’t Georgia be closer?! Someday, my friend, someday…ReplyCancel
