A few days ago, I opened my e-mail to find a blog comment from a dear friend. When I, in turn, went to her blog, I found that I was the winner of her recent giveaway. Well, if that ain't just a kick in the pants and a Happy New Year.
I was so tickled that apparently I emitted a joyful little squeal, and it got my daughter and I laughing so hard. Oh, I'm so thankful for the friendships that I've made because of blogging. I can't say it enough.
The blogs that inspire me most have beautiful photography -- but it's more than just that. Because of Christ, love shines in every photo these bloggers share, in every corner of their homes, in every post. They are gracious hostesses, as I feel like they have welcomed me into their home with the push of a button. I sit with my cup of tea, and drink in their hospitality. They inspire me to be a better blogger.
What's inspiring you for 2013?
