In honor of my first blogiversary ~ let's make it another first. In a random drawing giveaway a market bag similar to the one pictured, color subject to change, will bless someone. Yours will not arrive quite as long, unless of course you carry a watermelon in it when you go to market. The eight year old pictured here was so excited to use it, why not haul a watermelon in it. A lady in my knitting group did some research, before she made hers, and found recommendations for adding a "stabilizing" yarn in as it is crocheted. I will make this improvement to the one that I give away so, when you put a watermelon in it, it will not grow to this length. Please leave a comment on this post and feel free to pass along the information. Comments will close Tuesday night.

One year ago today I began this blog as a way to send information to our family and friends while we took a 5 week trip starting here. It was fun and I soon realized I could manage this much easier than pictures and scrapbooking. While I still want to create those memories, in the form of a scrapbook, it is my hope to have this space printed and bound for them also. Life happens so fast, unless someone is journaling, all the small day to day activities become a blur. I do not want that to happen, I want them to remember what daily life was like at our house. As a side note, I have met some really neat people in this space, who knew?
