Welcome Spring and My Three Year Blog Anniversary!

Good morning and a Happy Spring to you! Although to be precise I believe it actually begins at 12:57 PM EDT. Wouldn't it be great if at 12:57 we went outside and just like in the movie The Wizzard of Oz the sky turned blue and the flowers and trees bloomed? Ok, I know that is wishful thinking in Wisconsin as today I saw a few snowflakes but a girl can dream can't she?

In addition to the first day of Spring this week is my third blog anniversary! Frankly I cannot even believe I started a blog. Although I always thought it would be fun to start one and even signed up in 2008 I just could not bring myself to post anything until three years later. What in the world I was waiting for I could not say, perhaps some Divine inspiration?

In any case I am happy that I finally took the plunge. I have been blessed to meet many inspirational and exciting people that I now call friends. I have expanded my horizons, learned many new things, grown not only a little older but also a little wiser. To date I have published 843 posts and have had 1,125,905 visitors!

I just wanted to thank each and every person that visits and comments on my posts, your encouragement and kind words always make my day! 

Happy Spring! And thank you again for coming to visit Pine Cones and Acorns!


  1. Congratulations on achieving this milestone. Unlike you we are having an extended summer and I'm waiting for Autumn, not so much looking forward to Winter, but during the colder months I do have more opportunities to stitch. I'm so glad we don't have the snow that you do, I would just want to hibernate like a bear. Best wishes Wendy

  2. And a wonderful three years it has been! Happy Anniversary Elizabeth and Happy Spring! I am keeping my fingers crossed for the first buds of the season. Sending you warm wishes from Saigon..
