Hello, and welcome to my Guestbook!
I hope you enjoy your stay
enough to return again someday.
Don’t click off without fetching
a nugget of comfort or delight –
or perhaps even a sliver of insight.
And just for you,
I made something sweet
to thank you for your visit.
Go ahead, grab a cookie,
it’ll only take a minute.
These gems were not
pulled from a box,
but mixed up by hand
with the best of ingredients
for creating something grand.
So, thank you again
for your precious time.
Your presence in my corner
has been absolutely sublime!
In Love & Friendship,

Awww…thanks, Renee, I appreciate your visits! I didn’t think anyone else would notice the new guestbook, so you made my day! Hugs! 🙂
I like that! It is so YOU! Sweet. It is nice when one makes changes and others notice. tee hee. I have been busy on my blog changing here and there and still have more to do. I am having fun with it though. 🙂
Thanks and I just commented on your blog and love the new header and style! I’d like to make more changes, but so much to do and so little time! 🙂
Thanks Lauren. I know it is all so time consuming. All in good time hey. hugs. 🙂

Earlier last week, Deb, just for the fun of it. I’ve always loved yours, so I finally did it, but I didn’t think anyone would notice it, so thank you! 🙂 And thanks for your prayers! You are a sweetheart and the same to you, too, my friend! xo

Aww, Angela, you are too kind, but I will admit your graceful, compassionate comment is a great start to my Friday! Thank you so much! I can “ditto” all and pass it back to you, too! Hugs and blessings to you, too~xoxo
Yeah, I noticed the new layout too. I think it’s unanimous–we all like it:-)
Awww..thank you and I don’t know how I missed your comment! Sorry! 🙂
Something happened to my smiley face. Here: 🙂
Got it and I’m hooked on smiley’s, so thank you! 🙂

Hello Lauren!! 🙂
How are you?
Just wanted to let you know …
I really appreciate your blog and you for all of your support to my blog.
But I have decided not to blog for awhile…
you can email me anytime 🙂 would love to hear from you.
Many blessings and hugs Lauren !! 🙂
jhasmoments…. J. 🙂
Thanks so much for your message and your timing is perfect, as I’ve considered the same thing. I haven’t had as much time, lately, for blogging and have been overwhelmed with being behind. The decision hasn’t been made, yet, but still contemplating. Anyway, I hope you’re doing okay and just needing a little break, which is understandable…I’ll send you an email, too, but thanks again, and I also appreciate your continued blogging support! Hugs and blessings to you, as well! 🙂
Greetings Lauren, it has been a very long time … thanks for dropping by my blog again and letting me rediscover yours! I am glad to see you have continued to share your gifts and talent with “us”. I have a lot of reading and catching up to do. Take care.
You’re welcome and I am so far behind in visiting all those I follow. I don’t like it, but I think everyone is in the same boat, most of the time.. Unless we blog 24/7, which I’m unable to do! 🙂 See you soon and thanks for dropping by, too!
Delicious! Thank you for your offerings in words and vitual cookies and encouragement, and especially of the beauty of your spirit. XO ♥
Thanks for stopping by, Diane, and I really do wish I could share the cookies with you! And I feel the same about the beauty of your spirit, my friend…xoxo
Beautiful cookies, beautiful you ❤ xx
Aww..thanks, Christine, and ditto to you, too! I wish I could share the cookies! 🙂 HBL ♥
Nice, Lauren! 🙂
Thanks so much, Patty!
Lauren, so glad you reminded us to visit your Guestbook … how did I not see this before? I love coming to visit and reading your lovely words … and virtual cookies are simply awesome, thanks – it tasted great with my morning tea, and no calories! LOL. Have a wonderful day, my friend. ~ Love and hugs, Julie xoxox
With so many posts all over WP, it’s easy to miss a few, but thanks for stopping by, Julie! I’m glad you enjoyed the “no cal” cookies, too! Heehee! Love and hugs to you, my friend! xoxox
Hey Lauren, I’ve enjoyed more than a year of this virtual but real friendship with you. We’ve seen each other’s ups, downs, and many expressions from our hearts about our lives. You’re a great writer and person in general my friend. In blogville, for me, everyone kind of feels like family so what would I be? A blogville brother, cousin, or uncle or something? 😀 Just had to say something silly with the serious stuff too.
Much love and hugs to you and your family. Continue blessed always
Aww, Scott, thank you! It’s been great getting to know you, too, and I agree with how our blogville friends seem like family.
Your writing continues to fall off the charts! I valued your feedback from the beginning and still do. Thanks for the hugs, love and blessings and returning some to you…take good care of your daughter and your heart. xx
I want one of those cookies!! 😉
Help yourself and I’m so sorry for not replying sooner! 🙂
how did you know I wanted a cookie? 😉
Mental telepathy! Hope you enjoyed, Geraldine! 🙂
I enjoy visiting here – thanks so much sharing your work
Thanks, John, you just made my night, as I’m about to go off line. I really appreciate all your visits and “likes” too, and I love your writing, as well. Thanks again!
How warm and welcoming! I hope you are enjoying the holiday season.
Thanks so much, Lisa! I’m happy to see you here and wish you the same! 💗💗
Great site and great poems. Keep writing the good write!
Thanks so much, Dan, for your comment, visit and also for following me! I’ll visit you soon, too!
Hi Lauren…I am going off the blogosphere for focusing on my editing work!! Meanwhile can you guest blog once or twice?? You can put up a post on your book and poems!!! I am inviting you to guest blog and if you can please accept that 🙂 Thank You!!
Hi Kruti, I’m so sorry I missed this comment. How that happens, I have no idea and now it’s been over a month. Will you forgive me? I’d be honored to guest blog if you still want me to, but you probably meant while you’re gone. I think I missed the boat! Sometimes, I just can’t keep up but if you still want me to guest blog, I’d love to and would be honored. Thank you and if it’s too late, no worries, I’m flattered you asked me and just sorry I missed this! 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend!
You made me smile with your comment! I hope you enjoy those cookies. They’re pretty good if I may say so myself! 🙂 Hope you’re doing well and I’m very behind on reading blogs, but will see you soon! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
love them and did not stop dreaming about them since xx
Haha, well, if I could, I would share them! 🙂 Hope you’re having a nice Sunday!
Lauren you see it is great, so many day and it is still great Sunday we are talking about… Apology for late reply but I spend very little here now a day but it always great to come and see you around. happy Sunday my friend xx
No reply is late in my book, Doron. Blogging is like a game and most of the time, we’re losing. It’s so hard to catch up, but we all do our best. 🙂 Wishing you a peaceful Sunday, my friend..xx
Thank you and super week ahead to you all across the pond my friend. Hope you are all OK and well x
I’ve enjoyed reading your poetry, particularly the one of the ‘carousel’. Any little girl would love riding that one. (I have a darling little 3 yr. old granddaughter, youngest of four grandchildren.).
Thanks so much, Joyce! I appreciate your kind words. I write a mixture of poetry, spanning from encouragement, romance, passion, nature and children. I hope you continue to enjoy during your visits and my daughter was just a little older than your granddaughter when I wrote the Carousel Dream. They are precious! Take care, Lauren
Thank you for supporting my blog Lauren. I have now stopped blogging on WordPress, hoping to discover new things 🙂 Thank you for sharing you awesome poetry!!!
You’re welcome, Kim and thanks for the update. I wish you all the best and I enjoyed getting to know you through your blog, as well. And thanks for your kind words! 🙂
Lauren, such warmth and personality you infuse in all of your writings here…so wonderful to engage in your words. Thank you for making our days that much brighter.
Warmest regards always,
I’m humbled by your words. Thank you so much, and I’m truly glad you enjoy your visits here. I always love reading your thoughts and feedback on my poetry, as well! And although I’m late in reading yours, I feel the same way! Take care!
Ha ha ha. I just offered you a cookie at my place.
Well, it looks like we’re both fans, and one can never have too many cookies! 🙂 Thanks for visiting and for following, John. I hope you enjoy each time you return.
I’m sure I will. I’m a closet poet. 😀
Lovely blog. I send you a big hug and wish I could gobble up those cookies…my favorite. ❤ pat
Aww, thanks, Pat! I wish I could share them! 🙂 Many hugs, too!
I just left a message in October but wanted to come back and let you know how much I enjoyed your work in 2017. I am not your first follower nor will I be your last but want to continue. All the best for 2018. Thanks for the cookie. (I confess I took two)
First of all, thanks for popping over here again, and secondly, I really appreciate what you said. That makes my day, and I’m glad you’ve enjoyed my posts so far. Thanks also for the new year wishes, and please…take as many cookies as you’d like. 🙂
I’m enjoying your blog and writing, as well, although keeping up with the posts is always tough. I do my best, though, so please know that…
Hope the beginning of your 2018 has been positive and will continue to be, too.Thanks again!
Don’t worry about hitting all the posts. I run seven a week. Too much for one person
Thanks, John. Whew! That’s always been the tough part because I want to read them all. But it’s humanly impossible if you’re following a lot of people.
Lauren, a delight to pop by and wish you a very happy seventh blogging birthday – congratulations and a great achievement!! It’s been lovely to meet you here, read your posts and chat…here’s to the next seven years! 😀❤️
Thanks so much, Annika! I’m glad you “signed” my Guestbook. It’s a fun addition to the blog. Yes, seven years with several breaks. But, it’s been a wonderful, learning experience, and I’ve enjoyed meeting so many great people – You, being one of them. I’ve enjoyed your writing and blog, too, so Cheers to more inspiration and great reading! Hugs ❤❤❤
I already signed this page, but doing it again hehe. Happy new year!!
Thanks, Scott, I knew you already did, but I appreciate you coming over here again. 🙂
Many hugs, my friend, and Happy New Year, too!
Happy New Year, Lauren and congrats on your seven years of blogging. I’ve enjoyed our friendship over the years and look forward to many more years of conversing via our blogs. Lots of love and hugs.
Thanks, Michelle, and I feel the same way about our friendship, too. I also hope your New Year has started out on a positive note. Sending you much love and many hugs! xoxo
Thinking of you. Lauren, and checking in to see how you’re doing. Hopefully all is well.
Hi John! Thanks so much for checking in. All is good here. I joined a local writing group earlier in the year and have ventured into writing personal essays, stepping out of the poetry box. I’m slowly working on another book also that will have essays and a small group of poems. I’ve really enjoyed the group, so I’m not sure when or if I’ll return to blogging. But I miss everyone! Hope all is well with you too!
Hi Lauren, I am visiting from Jill Weatherholt’s blog. I love your “Guestbook!” I look forward to learning more about you. Erica
Thanks so much, Erica, and I invite you to visit my “About Me” page too. I’m just returning after a long break and I’ll be over your way soon. Take care, Lauren
Hi again, Lauren. I just left a comment on your “About Me.” I look forward to reading and learning more about you.🙂
I love visiting with you, Lauren. You are one of my happy places. ❤ xXx ❤
Aww, that’s wonderful to know, Jane, and I feel the same about you. I appreciate your visit here, and I hope you grabbed a chocolate chip cookie on your way out. 🙂 Hugs, dear friend! 🧡🌻🧡🌻
A lovely blog site, Lauren. And you are so welcoming to your visitors. You know I will be back. 😉
Thanks so much, Kaye, and I’m glad to hear that. I hope you enjoy when you do visit. 🥰
Hi Lauren! I just bought all 3 of your books! I am so excited to read them!
I’m Carol Anne, from Ireland. I am blind, and I have mental health challenges, I blog here
I’ll be sure to leave reviews once I read your books! xoxo
Oh, Carol Anne, I am so touched by your kindness. I truly am. And I’m also happy to meet you. That’s the beautiful gift of this blogging community. Thanks so much for buying my books. Each has its own purpose and I hope you enjoy them all. I will watch for your reviews in the future. And I will also visit your blog soon and look forward to doing so. Thanks again! ❤️❤️
