One Year Blog Anniversary


Today is the one year anniversary of my blog. The year has passed quickly. To celebrate, I'm having a little giveaway of handmade notecards. Leave a comment before Friday at midnight Central and I will select a winner. I want to spread the love, so previous winners, unfortunately, are not eligible! Thank you so much to those of you who have become blog friends and who stop to read my little musings. I'd also love to do a little de-lurking, so if you are a reader but haven't commented yet, please say hello! I'd love to hear from you.


Here is my very first post, explaining the reason for my blog and its name:

So, why ‘Meadowlark Days’? To put it simply, the call of a Western meadowlark is one of the most joyful things I know. Their exuberant song echoing across a short grass prairie always grabs my heart and raises childhood memories of long days exploring outdoors, examining stones, flowers, and branches as I ambled in the fields near our house. The meadowlark’s song is a thing of beauty and inspiration; I hope to use this blog to prod myself to remember to notice the small bits of beauty, joy, and wonder around me and to remind myself to explore with as much abandon as when I was a young girl. A day when I hear a meadowlark’s call is a good day. I hope you will join me on this journey and share your explorations as well!

Another favorite early post.

Since I recently won a give-away from you, I won't enter my name this time but I did want to stop by and say congrats on the milestone.

I posted something about letter writing and finding pen friends at my blog in case you're interested...
