  1. Well, HELLO THERE, Ally Bean!! You’ve got yourself a blog, and that just makes me happy. Hooray!
    Love this list. I’d be an apple too, btw. It’s my favorite fruit.


  2. Hi Stephanie. How fun that you found me first. 🙂 I’m not going to be a daily blogger again, but I thought that one or two posts per week might be fun.

    I really need to get the word out about this blog, don’t I?


  3. Hi La P. Glad that I figured out a way to tell you that I was here. I’m much less organized than I once was.

    Margaret, the one time that I was in Seattle I really liked it. I liked the freshness of the air and the flowers and the fish. I liked the smart, friendliness of the people I met. And I liked the grayish weather. It didn’t make me squint.


  4. Yay! When I saw your comment earlier, it didn’t link here, and I thought, Ally’s stopped by, which is wonderful, but I wish she were blogging again. So glad to see you are! Thanks for letting me know.

    I’d be a tulip, too. I love them.


  5. hey, i didn’t know you did this! 🙂 fun! i like the oyster answer best…that’s deep. actually, the whole exercise is deeper than it at first appears.

    glad you commented today so that i found you…nice to find others who are still just blogging what they feel like and not trying to get a deal with a fabric mfgr.


  6. julochka, I agree that this meme is deeper than it seems. I was surprised about how long it took me to put it together. Like you, I may make it an annual event.
