Holy Cow! A Year Already?!

Today marks the one year anniversary of my blogging endeavors. I'm shocked! 2008 was an up and down year for me, and it shows on the blog. I look forward to sharing my world with you for yet another year!
I promised the other day to post pictures of my grandmother Nonie. And here they are!
Nonie is the looker in the middle. I think they were doing their sexy pose.
I just love this picture of Nonie in the pigpen. She was a total germophobe (made up word) in her later years!

Dad said he found this picture torn up. I guess Nonie didn't want anyone to see her in a bathing suit. She didn't look too terribly thrilled with the photographer at the time either.This is a shot of Nonie and my grandfather looking very Great Gatsby. Definitley a sharp dressed couple.

Raise your glass to another year of fun blogging!

Dear Plant Freak,

Happy New Year! My name is Becca, and I am a senior Visual Studies major in college. I’m writing in hopes that you’ll help me out with my thesis. For this, I am working on a project titled: “A Need To Write: The evolution of personal narrative from books to the blogosphere.”

The project centers around researching what it is about writing that compels so many people to keep diaries, journals, scrapbooks or the like. In recent years, blogging has become increasingly popular as a way for people to keep journals/diary. As part of this project, I have begun my own blog which acts as both a public diary as well as a place to discuss the progress of the thesis. In addition, I have begun following other bloggers. I have tried to research a diverse group of writers, found randomly through Blogger or WordPress and simply began following the person’s writing.

This is how I came across your blog. I was wondering, if you wouldn’t mind, if we might do an e-mail interview regarding your blog. I’m not looking to intrude, but I would really just like to hear your thoughts on blogging, why you started writing, and other related subjects. I would really appreciate any and all insight as this is a very important aspect to my project.

If you would like to know more about my project, or me, please visit my blog at and feel free to contact me with any questions at

Thank you very much for your time!
