Hospitality, Friendship, Encouragement

Monday, March 31, 2008


Thanks to my dear sister in law, Miss Paula, I have been reminded that my 1 year blog anniversary came and went without my notice! The date was the same as Miss Paula's anniversary of her marriage to my brother Robert.

I have had a lovely time posting. I hope that it has accomplished what I wanted; for it to be a place of encouragement, hospitality, and friendship! Here is the whole first post:

Welcome to Creekside Cottage.We like to practice hospitality at the Cottage, and I hope you feel welcome here. I trust this will be a place of encouragement and friendship.

I have a wonderful husband, and 6 great kids. We home educate.

Some of my interests are homemaking, decorating, gardening, sewing, taking tea, reading and Jane Austen.

So again welcome, make yourself at home.

Mrs. Rabe

I have enjoyed meeting so many new friends, and keeping up with my delightful family spread out throughout the world!

I will think about a blog giveaway! With my camera still not working, I couldn't post any pictures of stuff to give away, but I will see what I can come up with!

So happy blogiversary to me! Glad you have joined me!

Yahoo! This has been such a wonderful way to keep up with you all! It makes being far away from each other physically, much easier! Plus the other lovely friends that have been made!

Happy Blogiversary!
I can't believe it's been a year already! Wow!
I've so enjoyed visiting you nearly every day! It's such a great way to stay connected with each other.


  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We spent Saturday, doing things around the house, and then we swam. Kyle and Sarah left after that...
