Happy Blogoversary Dzintra!!! And congratulations to Micki and Simone! What a lovely gift!

I just want to say that I have so enjoyed the friendship we have struck up... over the miles of ocean, and the days of keeping in touch, finding things we have in common, sharing and caring...

When I started blogging this past January, I was very nervous, didn't know how to do it and was afraid to put myself out there. But you, dear Dzintra, were the first to reach out to me, encourage me and share yourself as well. Now blogging is a blast! Now I know that out there in the big wide world we all share, are many kindred spirits, many friends, and much caring and sharing between us ladies. We are a big family... that's how I see it.

So again, Happy Blogoversary to you and to JoJo too! I know she's reading (: She's a darling special girl~ xxxVicki

Welcome To My World

Hello, my name is Dzintra Ingrid ... have been known as Ingrid and since our Sea Change I have started to use Dzintra ... pronounced without the D ... (but still known as Ingrid, I know, it's confusing ...)

Welcome to my world ... a journal of our Sea Change ... Mum to three wonderful children ... bringing up a daughter with a disability and seeing life through her eyes ... being a new Nanna ... photos ... inspiring quotes ... taking on a cookery course ... the odd recipe ... and trying to get some stitching done amongst all this ...
