Happy Anniversary!

You registered on WordPress.com 1 years ago!


We just can’t believe it’s been one year!

It just seems like yesterday we started sharing our grand adventure and journey to opening our dream bed and breakfast. We have been through so much this year and we have come so far. While the blogs have been lacking in the last month due to us working like crazy to get the doors open, we have enjoyed having our blog friends along for the ride.

In this year we have seen some wondrous highs! We have had 126,125 visitors from 154 countries and have made over 4,000 new friends. We have meet people that we have things in common with and have learned about new places and new ideas and seen a view of the world as we would have never seen it before. We have also shared some of our low times with the set backs in opening the bed and breakfast and the death of my mother. In all those low times, our blog friends never failed to love us, support us, encourage us and to give many, many hugs!

I can’t count the number for times we have been nominated for a blog award. While with the number of nominations we get keeps us from accepting, they all mean so much to us! Please know it is a honor to be thought of.

We want to stop and thank everyone for a great year! Each and everyone of you mean a lot to us and we appreciate everything we have received and been blessed to share in your lives too.

Now on to a new year and lots of great days ahead at the Plantation! So hang on to your hats! The ride has just gone into overdrive and we are racing to the finish line!

    Congratulations! You’ve accomplished a ton of stuff in a single year. Wow. I’ve enjoyed your posts and keeping up with all you’re doing. All the history and unburied treasure you reveal gives great insight into the founding of America and those who did so much, including, of course, Mr. Madison, who did so much for this country. Look forward to future posts. Thanks.
