You guys

I have no idea what to write on this Internet Web Log anymore.

Your suggestions appreciated.

    Just tell us more snippets about your life. That’s why we all started coming here to read–or at least, why I did, and have always come back.

    Turn your gorgeous handwriting into a font and post a link to d/load it! Yours was the 2nd blog I ever discovered back in `99 when I started working fulltime…its been a delicious downhill slide into the world of Google Reader and many RSS subscriptions since then…I’d hate for one of my first original reads to close down! 🙂

    The state of my own Internet Web Log indicates that I’m not qualified to weigh in!

    I second May. Yours is and will always be my most fav blog to read. You are funny. Real. I love your kids (yep, never met them, but I do), and enjoy hearing about your life, day to day – the difficult and sweet. Please don’t go away.

    When Oprah went off air my #thanksoprah was “Live your best life.” Writing for my site keeps me accountable and keeps the momentum going. In a life filled with jobs, family, errands and commitments your blog is yours and yours alone.

    I have loved your sweet blog for years and you have inspirited me to start my own. Thanks for sharing your life with the rest of us. Start a project! Pick a theme! Feature guest posts! Just try something new.

    Thanks you guys!
    I’m not going anywhere.

    This is the longest project I’ve ever undertaken and I love this web site. I just don’t know what to do with it.

    (And holy moly — Tan, NINETY NINE? We were babies! I’ll start researching fonting it up now.)

    Updates seem fun.
    Maybe I’ll just go with that.
    Grin.

    Love your menu plans and recipes. Your sangria and Feta/orzo salad are summer staples around here (southern Ohio).

    I ditto on the snippets/updates on you and your family, even if just a few lines (with a photo if you have time, but not if you don’t!). We love the ordinary, the everyday 🙂

    I love the life observations and recipes too. And, this might just be me, but I would really love to learn about how you got from WI to CA, if you have advice for anyone contemplating getting into the wine industry.

    I only met you last year (I KNOW) but somebody somewhere linked to a quote: Keep telling your story.

    People are busy and don’t have the time to go through archives (Or maybe it’s just me?)

    Anyway. Just keep writing. We’ll be here. 🙂

    I agree with what everyone’s said above – from the daily snippets of your life with your kids, your hubby, your dog, your bocce…your recipes! I still make the sangria (love) & the corn chowder (love love)…I don’t know…I’ve been visiting your site for a long long time & yours is one that inspires me…so I guess, just keep being you! Corny, but true.

    I love your blog, have been reading for over three years, since the birth of my first child – I am located in Australia, near a wine growing region in Victoria and enjoy hearing about your part of the world … and the wine and food of course!

    I lurve your hand-written menus for the week. Perhaps you can show us what that means for a grocery list – what do you make completely fresh, what do you make from frozen veggies, what do you heat up from frozen pre-made?

    I don’t know how you do it w/2 little ones… I can barely get a 1-course meal for my 1-yr old! I’m always so impressed with your 3-dish menus. 🙂
