happy new year y’all

On this first day of 2009, I am full of hope. A new president, a new one-year-old, new baseboard, new appreciation for all the small stuff that makes up my life. Including this here blog.

I usually write under the assumption that nobody is reading and I rarely speak to readers when I blog because what if there aren’t any I am am just all throwing all these questions and thoughts out there and nobody responds? Then I’d feel super lame. But today, at the beginning of all this new excitement, I am wishing you, dear readers, an abundance of laughter, vibrancy, love, creativity and inspiration in 2009. Why am I breaking my silly rule? Because I do know you are out there and I need you to know how much I get from you…whether you comment or email or just say something while in line at the grocery or never say anything at all…I love that my words sometimes resonate with you and want to tell you that your words and your presence in this whole wide world affect me in this profound and really unexpectedly wonderful way. Thanks for that.

This blog is taking me places I hadn’t expected and I promise some thrilling new dig this chickness this year….starting with a postcard set. They will be ready for purchase and shipment by the end of January. You may e mail me at digthischick at gmail dot com if you’d like to receive notice when they are available.

The postcards feature my photos of Montana homegrown goodness and a very charming backside. They are oversized at 5×7 inches and have darling little rounded corners. A set of five for $10. Why, that’s nothing at all.

xo, dig this chick

    Theses are so cool, so unique, so you! Put me down for….several, (dozen). You know me; I am a firm believer in the lost art of formal written notes. These will be my preferred form of script to write special notes to my loved ones.

    (I have been waiting to see these!)

    xoxo, Mom

    Love em’! And I’d love to hear when they’re available. My sister and I send recipes back and forth and your postcards would be perfect for that (except I’ll want to keep them for myself ;)) Anyway, dig the creativity and Happy New Year to you three.

    Lying in bed on ice has given me a chance to catch up on the blog. (back spasms have put me down for this week, but am on the mend- finally!!) Anyway, please put in an order for me for the postcards- what a great idea! I don’t know how you do it all. Any trips to RL planned?? Love, Aunt Deb ( I wrote about the apron somewhere else on your blog.)
