THIS FRIDAY IS A VERY SPECIAL FRIDAY!!! DO YOU KNOW WHAT DAY IT IS????? keep reading …you will soon find out!
HAPPY FRIDAY AGAIN!!!! I am SO glad to see you!
Friday is a BIG day for us here at Tootsie Time…(ok, just me…there is no one else here…lol) It’s a big deal because it means it’s PARTY TIME!!!! Fertilizer Friday is the day of the week than an ELITE group of gardeners from all around the world get together, snap photos, link up and Flaunt Their Flowers!!!
If you are new to Tootsie Time and Fertilizer Friday, I just know you are asking yourself…”How do I join?”
Well…it’s easy really. Here’s all you need to know to become a part of this great group of gardeners, bloggers and friends:
If it is spring or summer where you live, you need to snap a few photos of what you have growing, blooming or just love to look at that is of the plant variety…if it is winter where you live, you may post past favorite photos…or indoor plants…whatever you like. The only criteria is that it is a plant or something growing! You do not need to use fertilizer to participate in this party, but if you do, this is the reminder to fertilize weekly! All I ask is that: Your post must include the logo above and/or a link to Tootsie Time, or the linky will be deleted.
So....I would like to invite each and every one of you to join in and share your photos...
I am not flaunting this week…I have something a little bit different planned for you today. I am so happy to share this Friday Post with you all …as it is a VERY special post for a VERY special Weekend! Not only is it time for the Friday Flaunt…and it IS Mother’s Day this weekend…BUT….
Today is special for a couple of reasons....the first is that it is my birthday today. I am now celebrating my 41st year of life. ugh
The second...TOOTSIE TIME IS 4 YEARS OLD TODAY!!!
Yes...Tootsie Time is 4!
I have had such a wonderful time with this whole blog adventure...and for three years I have been typing away every chance I get to visit and to post. I hate that life is so busy that I don’t get to visit you all as often as I would like to, but soon…I will have a routine going on, and life will settle down a lot…and I WILL be there to return all the visits I have missed returning in the last while.
Four years ago today, (May 12 2008) I started Tootsie Time as a birthday gift to myself. Four years ago…I was a sad, scared girl, who loved to garden, and share the blooms of my labors with my online family. You all have walked a long difficult journey with me, through hell and back…to take me to where I am today….and for that I would like to say THANK YOU !!!
When I first started Tootsie Time, I began to slowly write, and was so thrilled when I had a whole 20 followers...today...I have over 850 precious followers! I had no idea when I began that this was going to be so much fun and so very rewarding.
Me when I started Tootsie Time
My life has changed dramatically over the past three years…for the better…I never dreamed I could be the person I am today! I am proud of who I have become…and of the happiness I have been blessed to find!
When I think about how much this little adventure has given to me I get a lump in my throat. What began as something to distract me from some upsetting issues in my life, has become a hobby that gives me more than I had ever imagined.
Many of you have been my shoulders to lean on during the most difficult times of my life. Without all the love and support from my online family, I would surely have given up. My friends and family are very important to me…online and off.
Thank you for all of the inspirations, motivations, hugs, and support, good times, giggles and tears that we all have shared. I love that many of you have offered me an unconditional friendship that extends many many miles. I have enjoyed telephone visits, letters and gifts…I just simply have enjoyed all of you!
Blogging is a great way to express ourselves, connect with friends all over the world, and learn about the differences we all have. Without each of you, I would not have become the person I am today! My life has changed dramatically over the past three years…for the better…I never dreamed I could be the person I am now!
I am proud of who I have become…and of the happiness I have been blessed to find! The followers I have are more than just friends...they have become family to me. I am a very lucky girl!
Here's to another year of fun, posting, and growing… with you all!
Thanks for following, commenting and sharing with me… for being patient when I don’t make it around…and mostly for being my friends!
now…get busy…its not YOUR birthday…you don’t get a weekend off!!! I wanna see you flaunt!!! lol
See you all right back here on Sunday morning for a special tribute to Mother’s day!
Until Next time….¸♬´¯`♬Happy ¸♬´¯`♬Blogging!¸♬´¯`♬
