A Little Sunshine


I have recently been mulling over the idea that I should say farewell to my blog - Barefoot in the Orchard - for many reasons (daily chores, playdates, horseback riding lessons, swim lessons, dance lessons, time with extended family, time with my favorite guy, time alone, and the list goes on...). I have found it more and more difficult to get to my blog on a regular basis. Then - a sign - my wonderful friend over at "Content in a Cottage" (thank you ♥ Rosemary) gave me "The Sunshine Award" and told me I should pass it along. Of course, I immediately began thinking of who I would pass it along to, since many of the people I blog with have become special friends over the years (btw - I would love to have lunch with any of you girls if you are ever in my neck of the woods). So... I have decided that I will continue to blog as much as life allows and hope to spread a little bit of sunshine anywhere I can.
P.S. xxoo's to all my bloggy buddies!!

Here is the short list of people who blog and spread a little sunshine along the way - in no particular order.
♥ Content In A Cottage (Rosemary, your blog has always been a favorite!)
♥ Five Months Until Paris (Cindy, you are just the best!! See you on SL.)
♥ Honeygo Beasley (Cindy, you got in here twice but technically it's Chole's blog so...)
♥ Wild Child (Meg, I wouldn't make a list like this without you on it!)
♥ Reverie Daydream (Mel, your blog & tweets inspire me daily!)
♥ Paper Schmaper (Krissy, you are just awesome!)
♥ Momma Chae (one cool momma!)

Wow! Thank you!! I know how you feel - I've been having trouble finding the time / words to do much posting lately. I love your blog, though, so I'm glad you were given a little boost and flattered that you passed it along to me!

Dancing Branflake said...

I love your blog and I am so happy you are going to continue it. It really is a great blog.

Sabina said...

Momma Chae, Ha - that's so funny that you found this award before I could give you a heads up. ♥ So glad I could pass this award on to you!!

Thanks also for the comment Tiffany!! You are one talented woman!! ♥

Megan Walker said...

Oh Sabina, you sweetheart! First of all, I know that feeling of just being spread too thin... but I want you to know that you really *are* a ray of sunshine in my life and I would be so sad without you. I'm glad you decided to stay :)

Thank you for making me part of your sunshine list, my friend :) That means a lot to me. I can't think of a list I'd rather be on! And don't forget that I just gave you the Beautiful Blogger Award - you earned that award, and you deserve it :)

Love You! xoxoxo

Krissy said...

aw, thanks sweetheart! I'm right with you on the blogging thing, but I do get such joy out of it! I keep it and just don't care so much about how often I post, or how many comments I get... it's just about the joy of sharing things.
Love your blog :) Too fabulous.

Punctuation Mark said...

congrats on the award... you really deserve it!

Simply Mel said...

Sabina ~

You just made my week! THANK YOU Dearest Sweet One!

Summer seems to be showing signs of a lot of 'blog slowing', and rightfully so! Enjoy this glorious time of the year!

And you know what, I WOULD love to bring the crumb to Santa Rosa and meet you and yours one day soon. Seriously!

Sabina...You should never retire from blogging. It's not allowed. I know you're busy...we all are but there is a big virtual community out there waiting to see what you're doing. I'm so glad my award made you see the "light" because you are definitely spreading sunshine all over the place. Thanks for passing it back. xo, Rosemary

Melkorka said...

I am so glad you are continuing your blog - It is one of my favorites :) (even though I lurk more than I should!)

I also sometimes wonder about whether or not I should quit blogging -because I lost that initial 'once a day' blogging passion - but I think there are all sorts of bloggers and it is such a generous medium that I like reading some of my favorites even if they only post once a month :)


Piecefulafternoon said...

Glad to see you back - and super glad you are staying. I always enjoy reading your blog!!! You are indeed sunshine.

Honeygo Beasley said...

Aw, Thanks Sabina! Chloe and I love you and your blog. You were one of the very first blogging friends we made here on the internet.

I know what you mean about when will it be time to say bye to our blogs. My Paris blog goes until my trip in Paris (in Sept.) but Chloe's is indefinite. And my Mark said I have to keep Chloe's blog going ... or else he'll be upset!

So blogging on, thanks again. And you are a ray of sunshine in the blogosphere!

Blogging can be addictive. I wanted to stop doing my 2nd blog but it's hard. I am following you blog, enjoying the pictures and your writing style

I hope you will continue, Sabina. One of my favorite stories was yours about the time your husband absent-mindedly got in the wrong car. I made copies and anytime someone needed a little cheer, a copy was poked inside a card.

So, you see? You have spread sunshine. You just don't know it!

I am happy you decided to continue to blog since I just discovered your lovely little corner of the blogging world! :)

Dogwood said...

You have a nice blog and I am glad you will continue. Take it easy and just blog and comment on blogs when you feel up to it.

Sierra S said...

I'm glad you're sticking around, your blog is always very fun and inspiring to read!

Jen of Made By Girl said...

Blogging takes a lot of time..especially if you want to keep your readership...

Good luck and hope you can keep it up!
