Happy Blogging Anniversary To Me!

Today is the third anniversary of Home In Douglas!

I have really enjoyed the experience of writing this blog and I so much appreciate my readers and followers!

I thought I would share some of my favorite photos from 2013 with you.

Charles painted and installed this shrine to Our Lady next to our Mary Garden

Frida loves me!
Windy and 6 degrees F!
That dang mouse!
St. Agatha icon shrine
Charles' birthday celebration
Habemus Papam!

I will do more pics in the days to come.  I don't want to overwhelm you!

I have enjoyed blogging and sharing my life.  I don't do big decorating posts, nor am I a "mommy blog".  I don't have hundreds of followers and I am not "famous".  I consider Home In Douglas a personal journal and chronicle.  Thanks for letting me share my days with you!


  1. Happy Blogoversary! You don't need to be any of those "other" blogs, I like Home In Douglas just the way it is! Keep writing...

  2. To you! And to me. I consider myself very fortunate to have found a friend in Alaska. Here's to many ,more years of blogging.

    1. And I am lucky to have a friend in NYC!

  3. Happy anniversary to my Alaskan blogging buddy.

  4. Thanks for sharing your life with us Paula!

  5. Happy Blogging Birthday!

    I like smaller blogs because when I write a comment, I actually hear back from the blogger. I have stopped commenting on the larger blogs even though I look and enjoy them.

    Have a good 4th year of blogging.


I love to receive comments - please tell me what you think!
