Thank You for Your Outpouring of Friendship

I can't seem, to this day, to tell you all what your *gift* has meant to me. The photos on "my" day were astounding enough, your "conversations" on Autumn's thread floored me when I read them, and now this, a book to treasure and share with all your photos in it! I'll never fully comprehend what I did to deserve it, but I *appreciate* it more than you'll ever know!

I'm embarrassed that this arrives as I'm finding less and less time to reply to each of your sweet comments. My days are getting so wonderfully full to overflowing! We had visitors from California come by this morning, and we were so delighted to share this little corner of the world. As we said goodbye to them, we gathered up our dinner contrubution and went up the street to spend the evening with our neighbors again. When we wrapped up the evening, I couldn't wait to come here and let you all know you'd really made my day...*Again*! I can't thank you enough...but I think you know what I mean...
just to give you something to do, we all know you've got "nothing" to do and have "tons" of time, hahaha!

Love that you love your gift! I also love that your flowers from yesterday are in today's photo too! Great photo.

very busy but fun schedule you have.
And same here, gifts mean a lot to me; and even the simplest note I keep them, and I find myself smiling reading old notes/letters.
posted June 3rd, 2010  
Aw, look at that radiant smile! I am so glad Autumn thought of this idea. I am sure everyone who participated was very happy to have a way to show you what an important part of our little online community you've become.

What a wonderful photo, Louise!! ;-)) I love your grey squirrel and the lupines! :-) You couldn't have said "thank you' in a better way! :-) Enjoy your activity-filled days, as we are enjoying the glipses at Lunenberg life with every picture you post ;-)
posted June 3rd, 2010

Your friendship and thoughtful comments have encouraged me and so many others on this site; it's a blessing to see you blessed. Beautiful picture of you, by the way. :)

Louise Brad has put in words my feelings, Thankyou.

lovely lovely YOU!
posted June 3rd, 2010  
hey..I'm sure it was a pleasure to all of us..:-) And you've taken the tiime to remember all of us in an album. You look so happy Louise and I love the lupins and squirrell...Brilliant!
posted June 3rd, 2010  
I'm glad you're having such a great time with all of your friends! That's the way life should be, if you want my humble opinion. ;) I just started following you right around your day (I think just after) and didn't get to join in, but I'd say the tribute is well deserved! You always have such nice things to say to everyone, and you comment on so many photos! We all appreciate your thoughtful responses, so I can see why there was such an outpouring. I'm also sure everyone understands that you don't have as much time to comment now, and we'll even let it slide as long as you keep posting your beautiful photos and sharing your adventures with us! :)
posted June 3rd, 2010  
Aww, you look so happy here. And I see the flowers you gathered (:
posted June 3rd, 2010  
You are very welcome Louise, you deserve it.

Awesome shot Louise. Thanks for sharing and thanks for just being you :-)
posted June 3rd, 2010  
Yay, you got it!!!
You're welcome and it's our pleasure, Louise. I like the lupines (whoohoo, i feel like a genius remembering the name) at the side of the frame and of course, the smile you've got on your face. glad to know we've made you happy.
posted June 3rd, 2010

Hi Louise! Here are some pictures of the hens & chicks from the nursery -- aren't they neat? A new use for your muffin tins! http://www.cadysfallsnursery.com/Miniature%20gardens.html

What a lovely book to keep so nice... (like the little fellow on your coffee table) .. great shot Louise nice to see you smile happy days
posted June 3rd, 2010  
I don't know how you do it! I reckon that little fellow on the coffee table is one of many trained squirrels that answer your fan base, has to be! One person couldn't do what you do, surely.
posted June 3rd, 2010  
I really happy you liked it. I would like to see the album...

You seem to be one of the sweetest, most genuine people Louise! It looks like a lot of other people here think so too. :) Sorry I wasn't introduced to you sooner to add to your collection of photographs. What a sweet way for your friends here to honor you!

You know you have started something now...I'll go on the hunt for monkey's and take bunches of monkey shots for the next few days. I know I have a few at home...lol
posted June 3rd, 2010  
I think this photo really captures who you are. Great shot!
posted June 3rd, 2010  
Lovely photo...we don't have the same couch after all, but I believe the upholstery fabric is identical!

I just read your comment on my Ken-and-Barbie deconstruction, and I am very moved, and responded over there. Thanks so much...I hope all the people in your "real" life realize what a generous, caring and truly beautiful soul they have in their midst.

First of all...HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY to TOM! ;-)
Secondly, yes...Kyle and Maria are getting married NEXT Canada Day, 2011. So, we'll barely have enough time to catch our breath from Kelsey and Ian's wedding here, and then another reception in England in Nov..before it's Christmas, and then K&M's wedding!
Somehow we have to find time ( and $$! ) to celebrate our 30th in Aug! Whew. That one might have to take a back seat. ;-)

Thirdly, I love that you have this book.
I am pretending that I am sitting beside you, sipping tea, and looking at the photos with you!

And fourthly, I am so happy that you are having such a great time visiting with all of your "summer friends" and infectiously sharing Lunenburg with the rest of us.
I imagine that you have inspired many people here, to visit the lovely Nova Scotia, simply because of your amazing shots!
posted June 3rd, 2010  
This is such a wonderful gesture by everyone who participated!

This is a wonderful place to hang out. Not to mention the fact that everyone takes such awesome pictures!!
