Thanks to reading a blog from one of my friends, where today she jumped in to do this challenge, I am too! has a weekly thing where bloggers share their world.  What a great idea.  I wish I would have found it earlier!

Have your blogging goals changed? Yes and no. I originally started blogging to put my thoughts down on paper and to share them with others, hoping sometimes it might resonate with them, help them.  I still blog for that reason.  But now, I also want to expand on it. I want to make this an ever-evolving thing!

If you could go back and talk to yourself at age 18 what advice would you give yourself?  Or if you are younger than 25 what words of wisdom would you like to tell yourself at age 45? Wow, it could be so much. Or so simple.  Hang on tight-you are in for a heck of  a ride.  It is going to get bumpy, but it will always always be worth it! 1401532_10151998161159769_1574149641_o What is your favorite comfort snack food? This is a tough one.  I am not really one for snack food.  Comfort food for me is more like things my mom or grandma used to make.  Aha…Grandma Ritter’s Coffee Cake! 1005194_10151761002634769_429140680_n-1 Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? What am I grateful for from last week?  Specifically, I got to meet my son’s girlfriend’s parents.  They are from across the country. She moved here well over a year ago and this was their first visit here.  I am grateful they got to see where she lived and more importantly, that she is happy!  The coming week? I am looking forward to the fall-like weather. It always lightens my mood! 041514-sywbanner
