Romantic Homes Featured Bloggers March Issue

when I get my
every month.
I let most of my subscriptions
lapse but this is one I
will keep renewing-
maybe forever.

when I get it I quickly go
through to see what is in
the issue and then go back
and absorb it at a slower pace.

Now...here is what is
amazing to me.
In the front of each issue
are "featured bloggers".
I am so blessed to follow each
of these blogs.
It makes my heart beat a bit faster
to know that they pop by my
blog, too, and comment sometimes.
I feel like we are kindred souls,
even though our blogs are
nothing alike.

First up,
Sweet Abby over at
 has a beautiful blog and
she is leaving an image and
quote every morning now.
Next up is June,
a dear, sweet gal,
over at
She has had her share of heartaches
and joys in her life but her
spirit will lift you up and give
you wings.
And, then there is Mikey,
Another blog you will love to visit.

And, although this is not a blog,
when I saw this purse
I smiled right out loud.
You might want to visit her here at
Try and drop by and
say Hello to these talented people
and tell them I sent you!

Happy Tuesday, friends.
I am on my way to my daughter's home
for the night and then headed to
Florida tomorrow.
You won't be rid of me easily though
because I am taking my computer
with me- HA!

So...watch your mouth!

  31. Hello friend, thanks so much for sharing the exciting news with all of our fellow bloggers, it's so nice of you to mention me. Have fun in Fl, bring some warm sunshine back with you.



  32. Hi Diana! Thanks so much for letting those of us who don't know about "Romantic Homes" magazine see the section on bloggers. I will need to go get a copy in the morning. Have a great time on your trip...you are going to think it is Spring when you get down this way...it is unseasonably warm (in a good way).

  33. That is so exciting Diana! This is the first I have seen this. DO you mind if I steal these pics of my layout so I can post it on my next post? As you know I live 60 miles from the nearest store to buy one an I had let my subscription lapse :( so I won't see it until I go sometime.
    Thank you sweet for posting about it so I could see it.
    biggest hugs ever!!!

  34. Thanks for the heads on these blogs. Have a great trip.
    Hugs, Ginger

  35. Hi Diana, so sorry I'm just now getting by to visit with you, it's been so very hectic around here. I wanted to thank you so much for the sweet words about my purses. It's always nice to meet new blogger friends. I will definitely be by for more visits. I do have a blog but I haven't been able to post much lately as I have been so busy. Hope to do a new post in the morning though! Would love for you to visit anytime!
    Hugs~~~ Daphne Nicole
