Awesome photo of you!! I think it went great with this fun meme!!! My hubby is my best friend too :)ReplyDelete
It is great to "see" and get to know you better! I left a career 25 years ago to be a stay at home mom and have never regretted it either.ReplyDelete
It's fun to find out more about the person behind the blog - I might have to do this too! I love the Autumn too :)ReplyDelete
I think that is the best kind of best friend:) I have enjoyed learning more about you and I couldn't agree with you more about the lima beans.ReplyDelete
Great photo! Loved learning more about you.ReplyDelete
What fun! My husband is my best friend too & I think it's great! I'm with you on the drinks of choice, can't get through the day without my coffee or water! It's so cool that you have twins, I'm a twin. It's great that you were able to stop working to stay home with your daughters. Apples all the way!ReplyDelete
Staci - I wasn't sure about posting the photo, but it did seem to go with the meme. Hurray for best friend husbands!ReplyDelete
Nise' - I see so many people on their profile, I figured it was time to post a picture of myself. I feel very lucky to be able to stay home with the girls.
Verity - Autumn is the best! The leaves are really turning here...next sunny day I'll be heading out with the camera.
Book Psmith - Definitely the best kind of friend! Unfortunately he likes lima beans, and I NEVER cook them.
ds - Glad you liked this...play along any time ;-)
Amy - I'm never without my coffee cup in the morning or water bottle in the afternoon! Have always wondered what it would be like to be a twin. My sisters really have a special bond, but my twins are like two kids that just happened to be born at the same time. All three girls are very close, but no real 'twin thing' going on.
I see you love chocolate, too.ReplyDelete
Your header picture makes me so jealous!
Fall is totally apple season, love the smell of baking apples
Love the picture. Makes me want one of those chairs for myself.ReplyDelete
WOW, I guess twins don't necessarily skip a generation. I have always been a stay-at-home-mom by choice. Wouldn't trade the memories. Oh, and fresh bread w/butter is the best!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks for letting us in your world.
Lovely photo! You were married one month before we were. Our anniversary is Dec 27, looking back what were we thinking!ReplyDelete
Bookmagic - Last night I made apple crisp...the first of the season! So glad fall is here.ReplyDelete
Stacybuckeye - Considering it was made of stone, the chair was surprisingly comfortable.
Kim- I'd always though twins skipped a generation, too. Guess I disproved that theory - lol!
Darlene - November 30 was Thanksgiving weekend in 1985, so our guests had a long weekend to travel. My parents anniversary is Dec 28th..they chose the Christmas wedding, too!
I am enjoying reading all the responses to this meme and am noticing that booklovers generally prefer Autumn/Fall! Must be the time of year that gets us thinking about staying inside and reading to ur hearts content!ReplyDelete
Great picture Joanne. I enjoyed the meme too; great learning more about you. (3 kids/twins--amazing. (I love Santa Fe); have been there several times.ReplyDelete
Samantha - Not sure what it is about autumn and book lovers! It seems that every one I've seen has listed fall, too.ReplyDelete
Diane - This was a fun meme....feel free to play along any time ;-)
Great pic! And this is a really nice way to get to know you. And I love your Quote of the Day; it's my philosophy too.ReplyDelete
Hazra - Thanks...I've tried to live by that quote for a long time now!ReplyDelete
I love these little memes. It's great to learn more about the people I'm reading!ReplyDelete
Justicejenniferreads- I agree. These memes are fun and this seemed especially appropriate after BBAW.ReplyDelete
I love the photo! I love reading these "ABC's of Me" things! I wouldn't be able to answer half of the questions myself, as my life needs to progress a bit more, but that doesn't ruin the reading!ReplyDelete
Madeleine - Guess we'll all just have to wait patiently then ;-)ReplyDelete
I don't know how I missed this post last week, but I am sure glad I found it now.ReplyDelete
Your picture is GREAT - and I cannot get over how much you look like my good friend here in Kansas.
Now when I read your blog I will not only enjoy the serene lakeside photo, but I will be able to put a face with the name :)
Molly - I figured it was time to put a face to the blog! I posted one shortly after I started, but nobody was reading then ;-) This meme gave me a good excuse.ReplyDelete
