After posting on the lost tradition of weekly baking and hospitality yesterday . . .

(and then a friend stopped by this morning and I was totally in sweats and uncombed hair and I forgot to offer her a cookie – sorry, Heather –  so, clearly, I am still working on it) . . .

I thought of you.  Yes you.

My followers.  All 61 of you.

This little blog of mine is a virtual front porch.

I hope it is a cozy one.

I hope you hear sweet words sometimes . . . since I can’t bake you sweets.

I hope you are encouraged sometimes or laugh sometimes, or learn . . . that your cup runneth over.

Thanks for clicking “follow” and for reading and laughing, learning, crying right along with me.

Some of you follow the blog (if you want to follow just check out the sidebar to the right and click “follow” – so easy, right?), some my boards, some my fb, and others my instagrams (I’m jenanninga) or tweets (ok, I admit I have only tweeted like twice – I don’t get it, I just don’t).

To say thanks, I have some adorable baby pics.

OK. OK. I really just needed an excuse to post these because – I mean let’s get real here – how cute are they?

I actually have a giveaway today as my thank you!  Scroll down to read more!

I am giving one lucky follower a coffee cozy!  I love my cozy and use it all the time.  With fall (and pumpkin spice lattes) coming our way, now is the perfect time to use a cozy!

To enter the giveaway simply:

Leave a comment telling me that you follow and what you enjoy reading on my blog (tutorials, funny stories, encouragement, etc,)


Click follow and leave a comment telling me you did!  YAY! 

The winner will be announced on Monday!

Good Luck!
