Loving Lately: Lala-Land & Beautiful Things…


I’ve been a little mentally unavailable.


Distracted maybe, is a nice way to put it.


And as some of you may have noticed… I’ve had technical difficulties.


Coincidence? I think not.


As this week celebrates my 1 year blog-iversary,Β I’ve been contemplating the futureΒ of Sadie’s Nest.


My goal was to set out for one year. Mission Accomplished!


Where it leads from here; I am uncertain. I’ve made so many wonderful friends! Good times…


I have been nominated for awards that have not been acknowledged, blog-fully challenged and unresponsive, honored by a dearΒ few without mention; I truly meant to reply, but time keeps slipping… So without further ado, as a small token of my appreciation to the following…


A sincere Thank You!!

Anna of Life Bellissima

Lynn of Lynz Real Cooking

Roberta of Chorizo & Thyme

Katie of Quirky and Wonderful

Terry of Spearfruit

Antonia of Zoale

Natascha of Natascha’s Palace

Fabiola of My HeartΒ of Mexico

Lynne of Lynne’s Recipe Trails

Parul of Gharkepakwan

I truly cherishΒ you taking the time to mention my little blog in one way or another. And thank you to many other blogging friends I’ve made new and old. It’s been a great year and experience! To whatever the future may hold!
