Is it Saturday? Yes, it is.
Is it the day before Mother's Day? Yes, it is.
Is this a day that the Lord has made? Yes, it is. Rejoice and be glad in it!
Is it the day of my 646th post on this blog? Yes, it is........and you're getting close.....
Is this the three year anniversary of my blog? Yes, it is!
Three years ago today I was sitting in Dunn Bros Coffee Shop with my daughter, Kari, trying to wrap my feeble mind around this new thing I was going to try, blogging. I was still three weeks away from retirement, three weeks away from finalizing the sale on our home, three weeks away from moving into our new fifth wheel trailer, and three weeks away from taking off on the huge adventure called full time RVing. And three years ago I still had my mom.
Wow, has my life changed in the last three years! We retired, as planned. We sold the house and moved into the trailer, as planned. We traveled, as planned. And we lost my mom, totally unplanned.
In the last three years we have gone to all four corners of our great land. We've visited Alaska, Florida, New Foundland and Nova Scotia, California, and every state and province in between those places. We have loved every single mile of our travels, I've shared it all with you through pictures and words. I hope you've enjoyed my travels a little with me.
And I would give it all up to be able to hug my mom tomorrow on Mother's Day. I miss her terribly.
Now to celebrate the past three years I decided I must have a giveaway! So, leave me a comment in the next 48 hours.......well, make it by midnight Monday.........and tell me what state or area of our great land you would like to visit. And, no, the prize isn't a trip to that place as much as I would like to give that to you! But, the winner, chosen by a retired Air Force guy, will get their choice of a purse or tote bag, lovingly crafted by me, in the colors (well somewhat close anyhow) of their choice. Okay?
Are you ready? Okay. Get set. GO! Comment!
