7 In Monday Morning Chit Chat

Monday Morning Chit Chat // Upcoming Birthday/Blogiversary Bash!

Welcome to this week’s edition of Monday Morning Chit Chat. Today I am so excited to tell you about a little something that is coming your way during the month of July. The month of July marks my 49th birthday AND my 7th year of blogging. I can’t think of a better way to spend it than with all of you! So in honor of my Birthday/Blogiversary Bash, we are going to chat it up about my life’s journey and my blog journey, and there will be a giveaway each week of some of the things that I love. It’s my way of saying thank you for being here and supporting my little corner of the world wide web.

Today I wanted to share a  blog post that shares a little bit of my life’s journey, as well as one that shares a bit of my writer’s journey.  Just click on the images to be taken to the posts.


I hope you’ve learned a little bit more about me via these posts.

Be sure to come back next week for our first Birthday/Blogiversary Bash & Giveaway!

Have a blessed week!

    I loved rereading these posts about you again, though I want to go and rescue that little girl and give her some love and nurture.

    Beautiful! I wanted to pick that little girl up and hold her tight, take her home and raise her with unconditional love! Thank you for sharing. Your writing touches me deeply! 🙂 ❤

    Hi Barbie …

    I guess I’ve known you enough to say ‘hi’ to {thanks, Mary!} … and after reading your stories here today, I feel like I’ve gotten to know you at a deeper level. Thank you for sharing your heart with those of us who are not regular readers.

    I’m in the midst of a big blog change, too, so it’s fun to visit you and see what’s happening here! I’m in the midst of tech difficulties … I’d so much rather write / create than trouble shoot.

    Sigh …

    Monday blessings!

    Happy Birthday/ Blogiversary month, Barbie! The 2 posts you shared were perfectly chosen for getting to know you better. The younger self letter brought tears to my eyes. I could so relate. I’m so happy you made that decision 7 years ago to blog. I’m thankful to have you in this online world :).
