Oh, How I Miss You Blogfest

 
 
It's time for the Oh, How I Miss You Blogfest, where we name one to three bloggers who have dropped off the blogosphere who we really miss, and name one to three others who we'd miss if they were gone.  This little blogfest is hosted by Alex Cavanaugh, Andrew Leon and Matthew MacNish.
 
Here's the person I miss:  Judy at Life...Minute by Minute.  (But guess what?  I just popped over there, and she showed up again!  She's been back a few days.  She had been gone since April.  I thought she was never coming back.  Yippee!)
 
 
And here's who I'd miss if they stopped blogging:  Well, I'd miss all of you - especially those who visit and comment regularly. 
 
But here are the three:
 
1. Yvonne Lewis who has nostalgic music playing on her blog of lovely poems. (Apparently Yvonne is having some trouble with her website, so I can't get the link.  But those of you who know her, know what a sweet lady she is!)
 
2. Arni at Travel Gourmande who shares her world travels with gorgeous pictures.
 
3.  Dana  who is like a ray of sunshine with all her Sunday Inspirations and Friday Funnies. 
 
If you have a chance, stop by and visit all of these wonderful bloggers!

  1. Yvonne is very sweet and was one of my very first blogger buddies. Hopefully her site comes back.
    Thanks for participating in the blogfest.

  3. Oh, you're sweet. Thanks, Sherry. I'm back now—maybe not daily until after the baby is born and things settle down—but I'm back! ☺

  4. Great post! I just had to stop by to tell you how much I love your blog! Can't believe we've never run into each other (cyberly speaking), before. I'm the mother of 4 and have always wondered if I should gear some of my posts toward my motherly adventures. As you know, motherhood, if nothing else, is one heck of an adventure. Nice to meet you!

    1. I call them journals for life. It's a good way to reflect when the kids are grown.

    2. Thanks for stopping by, SA! Peaches - you are right. It'll be fun to read some of this when the kids are grown up!

    1. Good! When you've been blogging a few years, you start to notice bloggers going. It's sad when they do. Hope you stick around a while! I enjoy your blog.

  20. Nobody would miss me. I could die and no one would notice until I started to stink Not that I smell all that great right now.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. OMG, Janie! I would totally miss you! Actually, it was a huge debate whether or not to put you on my list. I was only allowed three, and I thought I put you on my list last year, so I picked three new people. So please forgive your wayward blog daughter. I would miss you terribly if you were gone. Now go take a shower. ;0)

  21. All people I don't know! I have such a huge list to check out now!

    1. I'm glad people enjoy my garden blog. I don't post on that one as much, and I've toyed with the idea of dropping it because I'm so busy. But since many of you have mentioned that you'd miss it, I'll just keep going with it. I really enjoy your blog, too!

  24. Hi Sherry,

  25. Such a a sweet post.
    I found it so difficult to choose the ones I would miss if they stopped blogging, so I opted to list 8 bloggers who seem to have slipped off my radar...
