Can I come back now?

I feel like I’ve been gone for months! We had a wonderful trip to North Carolina but I MISSED YOU ALL! I knew I would! It’s the first break from blogging I’ve ever taken and I hope I don’t have to do it ever again. I missed all of my girlfriends. I can’t wait to visit everyone and try to catch up. If I’ve missed anything really important, please tell me in your comment.

When we planned to be gone for a month, I knew I would miss sewing but I didn’t know I would have trouble with the internet. I even broke my camera on the trip. (but hubby has been sweet to order me a new ‘refurbished’ one)

So I can’t wait to get back to sharing happy times and hard times with my blog buddies. What a difference your friendships make!

I’m joining Beautiful Sunday. Thank you Diane for the beautiful postcard you sent me! You are a wonderful penpal and sweet friend!

So glad you are back Diane. Nothing much new going on in NoAla.

You're back? Wonderful!! I dropped my camera a couple of weeks ago and broke the lens. Luckily I just had to replace that part. Can't wait to hear all about your break.

Hello Diane, so glad to see you back! I am sure your visit to the mountains was relaxing and fun! I love the beautiful mountain images and colorful trees. Sorry about the camera and I am glad your hubby already ordered you a new one.

It's really interesting how much we miss one of our regular blog buddies when they are out, but we all need a break now and then. Glad you are back and have a camera ready. No big news missed, just regular life stuff.

Linda Walker said...

Good morning Diane!
Well, it's about time! I have missed you! Seriously, I am so glad you had a wonderful time. Sometimes it is just necessary to cut the communications and focus on the real world! Your virtual world is still here and glad that you have returned to us! Welcome back!
xoxo

Welcome back! That's about how my blog went, but it is good take a break. My computer was acting up; it was too hot, and my photos were rearranged when I updated my computer, because I never put them in albums. It will be wonderful for you to have a camera again. xoxo Su

Lovely shots. It is so funny in a peculiar way how we can miss blogging when we are away. Blogging friends are so wonderful.

Welcome back. NC is gorgeous.

Kathy said...

Nicole Beadwright Campanella said...

Musings from Kim K. said...

Welcome back! The blogging community certainly missed you. It's ok to take a mini respite every now and then, but blogging friends are indeed an extended family. Happy October! Happy soon-to-be Halloween!

Linda aka Crafty Gardener said...

Welcome back, missed your posts. Aren't you lucky getting a new to you camera, sweet hubby :)

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Welcome back lavender sis. Too bad your camera broke - I was lucky last year that my DSLR broke after I got back from Ireland.
I'm changing up MM by only putting up a host page and linking as a participant. It was taking me too long to visit everyone and...becoming a bit of a chore. Now I'm promoting No Obligation Blogging for the meme and hope this works.
Enjoy your new camera when it arrives.

Elizabeth said...

Glad you are back! I hope to make a trip to N.C. this month, how is the fall foliage?

Take care,

Lorrie said...

It's funny how much we miss blogging when we're away from it for awhile. So glad to see you back. Sorry that your camera broke - that happens occasionally. Beautiful photos from your trip. I hope you're soon settled back into ordinary life (and blogging).

Donna said...

Welcome back! Looks like a wonderful trip.

Vee said...

Welcome back! Glad that you had a nice time away. Sometimes the breaks from blogging are good. Sorry about the camera...any chance it can be fixed? (I haven't been blogging so nothing new with me. =D )

Danice said...

Yes, welcome back. We surely did miss you. Glad you had a nice trip, but so sad you broke your camera. The photos you posted are beautiful, as always. Well, as for what you've missed, head on over to my Homespun Hannah's Blog to enter the 5th Blogoversary Giveaway :)

Diane said...

Welcome back! Too bad about your camera. Hope you like the "new" one!

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh no, you broke your camera on your trip? I hope you were able to get a lot of good pictures first when you visited North Carolina. I look forward to seeing pictures of another state.

It's always nice to be back with our blog friends, isn't it? Missed you too. :)

love, ~Sheri

Shug said...

Welcome back....sorry about your camera, but I am excited to see the photos that you were able to get. There are certainly some gorgeous places in that area....

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

Oh welcome welcome welcome back - I'm sure everyone has missed you - but not nearly as much as I did - and my dollies have missed you too. They are just waiting to see what glorious things you have sewn up. I think they are doing the happy dance - I can hear tiny tap tap taps in the other room and some giggling.

Your photos are wonderful - so glad that you got a new camera right away. I just hate being without a camera - both of mine travel with me no matter where I go.Hugs and happiness.

NanaDiana said...

I was just thinking about you today and wondering when you'd be back and then here you are - I missed you and your sweet comments. Did you leave before the trees changed colors?

Happy you are back, you were missed too. My beautiful niece passed away and we had that whole thing to go through. My twin sister's youngest child~

ann said...

Well, I have been away too, but not on a wonderful vacation. Bummer about your camera. I'd be lost with out mine. The girls in their fall fashions look so festive and happy. They have a good mom who sews for them. I still have to do some sewing; I need to tear myself away from the dollhouse. I am glad that you are back. Now you can play catchup.

Lovely photos Diane,
I can feel you are happy to be back blogging.
I have not been blogging for a while..
I hope to do a little more, now that my hand is really on the mend from my fall.
wishing you a great week.

Diane, I'm so glad that you are back. I look forward to all your photographs. :-)

Susie said...

Diane, I think you have truly been missed...That's a good feeling. I missed you, your sewing and your hikes. We just got a new modem so we could have wifi...and believe me , I was even scared to hook it up for fear of losing my computer services...LOL. I am too nervous for that kind of trouble. Hope you are adjust to life back at home. Blessings to you and your husband. xoxo,Susie

Penny @ The Comforts of Home said...

Welcome back to blogging. Were you having problems at your condo with the internet? You could have gone downtown Hendersonville, they have WIFI....

I was just thinking about you today! I'm so far behind all things blogging, too, but I haven't gone anyplace! Ha! So glad you're back and I can't wait to hear all the details!

Diane Writes said...

Dearest namemate,

I may not often visit you here but I don't ever forget you. You are one of the few people I consider as friends in the blogosphere. Life has not been so good to me lately so to escape from all the negativities, I found other ways to divert my attention. One of which is writing and sending postcards to my dear friends. I really find it therapeutic whenever I write letters. So I hope you don't mind if I'm sending you more. :)

Thank you for the friendship and looking forward for more years with you.

Always
Diane :)
