Lots of changes for me this year! Please drop by and see some of them on my new website, MelanieKaris.com. I look forward to "seeing" you there! Note: I am finally doing as my husband suggested I to do always - sometimes husbands are right! - and authoring my books and sites using my first name rather than my middle name - Ann - and a family name - Nichols (Ann Nichols). But you, my dear long time blogging friends, can call me Ann any time you want! Thanks!

200th post!

Ann Nichols
I'm back!
(Well, almost!)
To my dear blogging friends,
I truly haven't dropped off "blogging earth" taking my much appreciated St. Nicholas Churches from Around the World with me!
I'm afraid that the wonderful thing called "Life" (and writing several books) just kind of intruded upon me. Blogging, something I truly love, kind of got sweep to the side and here I am now, wondering how so many months could have passed since my last post. But by next week, I hope to be back in full swing with a new improved look and lots of exciting things to show and tell!
I just want you all to know that I have been thinking about you and can't wait to catch up with everyone's adventures and news!
PS It's my 200th post!

Hallo Ann. Good to see you here again today. What a lovely smiley photo!
We all understand about life getting in the way of blogging.
The good thing is that we're always here waiting!

Nice to have you back, I am nearing my 500th post

You have word verification the makes commenting a bit harder when one can't decipher the mess they require you to type:33evuaMar means little to me, and you can take it off

BEAUTIFUL ANN!!!!!!!! YOU ARE BACK! HOW GREAT TO SEE YOU, and I mean, truly SEE you here! Thank you for coming by to visit, and you have been busy! I totally understand; blogging has been my absolute favorite thing to do, but I've had to trim away at the amount of time I spend POSTING since my writing goals have changed. But a new job is keeping me from doing both things (blogging, writing poetry) effectively. I wish you well on all of your books, and welcome you back to blogging with open arms! Anita
