101 followers!! Thank you

Today I reached 101 followers!!

Ok, I’m counted in that number so it’s really 100. 😉 When I first started, I told myself that I’d be happy with 50, but that darn human nature kicked in: kept saying maybe 10 more and a little more. Every time I receive a WP follower notification, I tell my kids and they do a loud hooray for me.    

When I first started in June 2017, I sat in front of my computer for hours pondering if I were really going to do this. I got the final kick in the butt when Pamela, my dear friend from NYC, called me up one morning and asked for the umpteenth time if I started writing, besides in my journal. She challenged me to do what scared me; her encouragement never stopped. It was like that when we were roommates and still the same after I moved to CA. “Sing” in my blog name was part of Pamela’s idea. I love that my admiration for wildflowers incorporates her jazz singing background and colorful spirit with my little space in the blogging world. In true Pamela style she called me thirty minutes later to check if I opened an account on WordPress.  

Writing in this blog gives me a happy space to keep writing, discover new interests,  find new blogging friends from different parts of the world, and reconnect with old friends through this forum. I’ve also met a handful of bloggers who faithfully cheer me on: I am so thankful for them!! Amy constant cheerleaders: my dear friends from church, friends from my school days in NYC, homeschooling moms, my neighbors, and of course, Chris and my little peeps. Love you guys!

Thank you everybody for your encouragement, support, reading, and keeping up with my blog!! Last but not least: God, thank you for your incredible blessings and for this desire to keep writing even when I feel like I have nothing to say. You continue to teach me about my heart’s longings, weaknesses & strengths, my ambitions, and my fears through this craft.

Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

    1. Thank you!! It’s kind of embarrassing to admit, but I could not wait till I got to the 3 digit milestone so I could write this post. oh, man. so human. so flawed. But I’m happy for each person who reads my blog out of their busy days and to leave me comments and likes. It’s nice to be connected this way. God is so good to give me this space to share the things on my heart. I’m still shy about sharing my faith, and I’m learning everyday how to be more bold. Love you girl!! Thank you for your continued support and for your constant cheers. 🙂
