Archive Meme

Tracy at Pink Purl tagged me for a meme. The focus is to choose and publish your favorite old posts.

Here are the instructions:
Link 1 must be about family. Link 2 must be about friends. Link 3 must be about yourself, who you are… what you’re all about. Link 4 must be about something you love. Link 5 can be anything you choose.
I think this is a great way to circulate some of the great older posts everyone has written, return to a few great places in our memories and also learn a little something about ourselves and each other that we may not know.
Post your five links and then tag five other people. At least TWO of the people you tag must be newer acquaintances so that you get to know each other better….and don’t forget to read the archive posts and leave comments!

I have a really hard time tagging people! I just can't do it! But if you want to do this meme, please feel free--and do let me know so I can go read your posts.

Here are mine :

1. Family

This post lists my sons, daughters, nieces and nephews and tells what they are doing. It also announces the engagement of my son and daughter in law.

2. Friends

About my bloggy friends.

3. Me, What I'm all about.

A random meme.

4. Something I Love.
Duh. Someone I love? Our new boy!

Another thing I love is the beach.

This was so interesting and gave me a little glimpse into your life and family. so lovely to get to know.
Your knitting is so creative.
They have beautiful handspun yarns at the green market at Union Square - makes me think I should take up knitting again.
All best wishes.

This was such fun, Willow, I really enjoyed this chance to read some of your older posts, which I'd yet to read. So thanks a lot for playing along! Your previous post with all the fiber was a feast for this yarn-lovers eyes! I am hoping very much to de-stash throughout the course of this year and start 2009 with much less yarn hanging around the house--LOL! Happy Day ((HUGS))

This was fun to read, and inspiring, too - reminds me that I have lots more topics to write & share about! Thank you.

Have I mentioned how happy I am for you and your beautiful grand-baby?? What an exciting new chapter for your family!
