Feisty Harriet

Nature church is usually my favorite church.

This weekend sounds lovely, and I giggled at how much I recognized myself in your laying down and getting personal with the daffy-down-dillies! :)



Love it!!


Great selfie (sp?) of you and your husband. You are so lucky to live in such a beautiful place. No mountains or canyons in Illinois. We will have daffodils but not for a few weeks.

There are many reasons to have blogs. It doesn't have to be about selling or promoting something. Do what makes you happy, Amy.


Getting out in nature is the best. Family time is even better. Glad you had a good weekend and hope you keep sharing your stories. As a mom who loves our ordinary life, I love the "normal-ness" of your blog posts. We are all in this together, even though our stories are all our own.


I enjoy reading about just life in general. Also- I think that a pre-church walk with your husband is a perfect way to keep the Sabbath holy.

Just a note Amy - I try to get here a couple times a week to catch up on your blog. Thanks for continuing it. I like reading about your life


I love your 'everyday' posts just as much as the ones that challenge me to think. Thanks for keeping your blog going and for sharing your self with us. Thanks too for 'friending' me on Facebook - I got a reminder this morning that we've been friends on that platform for 8 years! I really like having a fellow-quilting, scrapbooking, reading (librarian), hiking, running (well, I walk), gardening, parenting, friend on the other side of the world who also has strong opinions like me (although you express yours a million times better)!

I've read your blog for years, and commented a few times here and there. However, I love the realness of your blog. You write so well about life--the good, the bad, the messy, and the inspirational. Thank you for sharing yourself!


I know I've said this before, but I'll say it again because of your words on blogging: you are a beautiful writer. Your words comfort me.


I love reading blogs, and I recently found your blog and have fallen I love. It is so engaging and written from the heart. You keep writing, I'll keep reading!
