3 Years Ago Today...





A great event in the history of man occurred. Okay. Just a bit of hyperbole there. It wasn't a *great* event and very few people noticed. Actually NO one noticed at the time. It was the day that old Susie Q introduced herself to the world. Well, so to speak.
Howdy do, my name is Sue!
It was the debut of Rabbit Run Cottage. October 20th, 2006. Just click on the words Rabbit Run Cottage and you can take a peek at what passed for a post back then! I had no idea what blogging would come to mean to me or of all the delightful friends I would have come into my life because of it.

I have truly been blessed to be a part of this wonderful blogging community. It is an honor to be invited into your lives, your homes, to have you share a bit of your world with me. I hope you have found something here at Rabbit Run that has made you smile, laugh or think. I have been so inspired, uplifted and delighted by each one of you.

I hope to continue blogging for a long time to come and I hope that you will share that journey with me. I may not always post or visit in a timely fashion but I hope you will forgive me for this...and for that I want to thank you so, so much!


AND, to thank you for being such special friends over these past 3 years, I want to have a little giveaway.

I am offering 3 books. The first is Waterside Cottages  by the fabulous Barbara Jacksier for the decorator and home lover in you,
Eloise: The Ultimate Edition for the child in you, and Julie and Julia just because I loved it AND the movie!





Just leave a comment here, on this post, and I will add your name to the list of possible winners!


I will pull a rabbit...er...name out of my hat on Tuesday, October 27th so you have a week to get that comment on here! 'K?


Thanks to you, each one of you who mean so much to me!

Love and Hugs,
Susie Q

Hard to believe I have been in the blogging world almost 2 years now. Of course I have never been as prolific as you, nor as talented at photography, but I have made many new friends and I am happy to count you as a very special one!

Does flattery buy me an extra chance??

Happy Birthday Rabbit Run!

Gretchen said...

I've been blessed to "know" you for at least 2 of those years. Your sense of humor, decorating talent, and beautiful photography are only a few things I lurve about your blog. My favorite thing is just the "SusieQness" of it all. And I heart the name.
