A Special Night

Tonight is special.  One year ago on this date I hit publish and the "View From Harmony Hills "  became a blogspot.

It has been an amazing year.  I have seen the world and never left my hilltop.  Traveling to the UK, Canada, Australia, Germany, Scotland, Italy, the Island of Malta, and all over the US has been such a blessing.

All of you have made me feel so welcome...you have invited me into your homes and shared your dreams, your lives and your loves.    Thank You!

I wish to express a special thanks to Diana M Davis .   She was my first visitor.  If you have never stopped by her blog be sure you do.   Her watercolors are breathtaking.   Barbara Joan  was the second to visit me.   Her encouraging words gave me the faith to keep posting.   BJ's art is extraordinary.   She works not only with watercolor but pencil as well.  Bless you both for making this "newbie" feel at  home. 

     
Blogging does take time and effort but the rewards are great!  God Bless all of you on this special night.   I am so grateful you let me share my view with you.

  16. Congratulations Debbie on reaching the year milestone. Blogging world is fabulous as we get to meet some really lovely people. You are one of them and I am glad you entered the blogging world. Your blue jay is just so adorable. Reminds me of my first visit to Canada when I thought these birds were just so exotic. I was constantly taking a closer look through binoculars. The locals thought I was crazy as they were just common average blue jay birds for them. So I am so glad you elevated the blue jay's status with your painting. :-)

  18. hHppy one year blog Anniversary...I am so glad to be a part of your blog friends. I went back and read your first blog post.I was surprised to find we started our art in much the same way \0/ Your blog has grown and developed so nicely. My first year was full of learning to use my computer and lots of whining LOL.
