Lemon Verbena Shortbread Cookies

lemon verbena cookiesOn a recent trip to the Spice and Tea Exchange, I had my daughter pick a new spice to add to our collection.  She picked Lemon Verbena.  Lemon Verbena has a smell reminiscent of tea with a lemony note.

You know how to make a girl feel special.

I want to take a moment to thank each and everyone of you. When I began blogging, I was unsure where this adventure would go. I did not tell anyone I blogged, for I was uncertain and afraid – what would I write about; would anyone want to read what I wrote; how long would this interest last (a few months?).

Yet here I am almost two years later, and I now have 100 followers. Compared to some big name blogs this is pretty crummy, but it makes my heart swell. I have intentionally not told any of my friends that I blog, and most of my extended family is still in the dark. So each of you is a complete stranger to me. Yet, you encourage me to keep writing.

Lately, I have been sharing a lot of my knitting projects; if you stopped by to see them there are more coming. But I feel I have neglected my other interests. I have several posts planned, but am struggling to find the time to sit and write. I dream of days when I will be able to do that.

If this is your first time stopping by or you follow me, thank you for encouraging me to continue to share the projects that I am working on. If you have just stumbled upon this page, you may want to check out some of my top posts.
