Scared me there for a minute, perhaps two. I love you, too, but I do not want the immediacy that comes with Twitter or Instagram. It just isn't enough for me on the one hand, and way too much on the other. Hope that you understand my feeble attempt to explain why I loved finding you here, at tHiS place. Happy New Year, dear Kim!

Vee

why I LOVE finding you here, not "loved." I'm not going anywhere and I hope that you are not either.

Kim

((Vee))
I so understand! I love finding YOU here.... and I love you.

Happy New Year Dear Vee!

SO glad you decided to stay here. I am not on any of that social media so I would miss your posts! Happy New Year!

Kim

And I would miss you VERY much sweetie! Thank you so much for all!

Happy New Year to you and yours!

I stopped my blog a number of years ago. It was starting to feel forced. But I love Instagram. It's spontaneous and just a better fit for me.

Pom Pom

I can't let go of the blog thing either. I'm glad you still pop in here, Kim!

Stacey

Oh please don't end it! I still miss Dear Daisy Cottage and this is our little dose of it. :)

Happy New Year, Kim! Count me and Mom among the many who love to visit you here on your blog. So thank you for wanting to continue here. We read every word, look at every image and love it all!

Kim, so so glad you're keeping your beautiful blog, at least for now. I don't have instagram, and I was just talking with a dear blog friend and told her that I think I'm the last one to catch up with technology, but that was ok with me because it's where I want to be. I don't know why, but when trends and fads come around, I tend to run the other way. If you figure that out, let me know hehehe. This drawing of Santa is so jolly and cute. He's the perfect Santa, and I'm so glad your mother received it. This is such a precious picture of Summer Lynn and her dad. And your twinkling lights on the tree, how pretty is that picture. I didn't want to let my tree go this year either. Although I haven't joined, I look at your instagram pics every now and then. Who knows, maybe someday I'll join in the fun. But for now, Happy New Year, Kim! I wish my special friend so much joy and love and peace this year and always.

love, ~Sheri

This blog is like 'coming home' to all that is sweet and beautiful in music, words, photos and art. I selfishly would be so sad to lose that and would have to figure out how to sign up for Instagram. I do have a link to one Instagram site which I enjoy. But it's so fast paced and the words shared are so brief it feels like window peeping rather than being home and sharing with someone you admire. You need to do what is right for YOU! Just my thoughts. I'm resistant to change and technology, too. I want to hold on to good things and cherish them. That is why my simple Christmas decor stays up 'til the end of January. I fully savor the season 'til it's time for Valentine's Day. Happy New Year dear Kim!

Deidra

I'm so happy you are not ending this. To me your blog is like going home for a visit. It touches tender places in my heart. I don't do change well either, and I don't know much about the other social media forms. This is good, and you do it perfectly. I look forward to our visits...whenever they are, often or not. You have become a cherished friend even though we have never personally met. Your photography is beautiful, often poignant, ever touching my soul. Your paintings are wonderful and your granddaughter is a delight. Thank you for sharing your life with me, with all of us.

Daniel

Kim I am so glad you are keeping the blog! A few months ago I did a post on my blog that said I was done. At the time in my heart I was done. I discovered that I missed my little blog. So I had to write an apology and am blogging again. So glad you knew you would miss it as we would miss you! Keep on blogging!

Kim

((Beth))

Thank you dear Beth very much for your beautiful words that warm my heart. I am so thankful for your presence and for you.

Happy New Year!

I'm coming in late I know....but NO! NO! you may not change that much. Not having "this" would leave too big a void and that is.....JUST, NO!!!!

Darlene

So glad you are staying here on your blog where I found you years ago. I do not drop in often enough and have not posted to my blog in three years now. I cannot figure out how to as things have changed. Now a group of bloggers have started a group on Facebook. I only know one that I followed for years. Not the same as blogging and like we have discussed not the same as the music that was available to us. I have a memory from your beautiful blog. A man wrote to you as his wife was such a fan of your blog and the music and listened every day to your music in the midst of your music. She passed away and so many made hearts that you sent to him, her husband. I am not crafty so did not but how you have touched so many is so wonderful as is your amazing blog. I am glad you had a wonderful Christmas and wish you a Very Happy and Healthy New Year. Your photos are amazing as always. Thank for for staying here and warming our hearts and spirits. Means a lot to many today.

You are a constant blessing to me and I am so happy you are still here. :)

Just say NO to change! LOL! Thank you dear friend for always knowing my heart - here; there; wherever we are where we share and in the world.

You are cherished and I am always feeling your presence here. Yes, that was Jack who shared about his beautiful wife, Tabatha. He was so touched by ALL of you and your thoughts and prayers. The last time we communicated he was doing well and life was treating him kind. I know he will be forever grateful. Thank YOU for being here and warming my heart and spirit.

Please, please don't stop blogging. I miss Dear Daisy Cottage every day and do NOT want to do without Imagery by Kimberly. The pictures and music are paired so beautifully, it would be so sad for them to go away.
Happy New Year to you and your family,

Love the pictures. Your Santa is adorable. Your mom and sister must have loved their gifts.

Summer looks like so much fun. I will have my 2 granddaughters here tomorrow :)

Glad you are going to be here.

Marcia

And that is more than okay!
Reading your post made me feel as though you had read my mind. :) I've been spinning similar thoughts these days...instagram...blog...change...year 2000 and how peculiar that was and how quickly time has passed. I'm glad you'll continue to share here. I started to use instagram last year, and in spite of all its advantages, I feel it's a hindrance to my creativity.
Just glad this beautiful place will continue to be here in 2016.
My heart smiles.

((Marcia))

I so understand your thoughts and heart! IF I was not able to access Instagram on my large desk top, then I would not enjoy it as much as I do.You always make my heart smile and I am so thankful for you and your sweet soul.

Maybe I should give Instagram a try. Only because of you!

Becky - Sweet Cottage Dreams

My precious friend....
I am sitting in my granny chair in the sewing den..music playing..catching up on your posts..and totally smitten with each and
every photo. What a precious gift you have of capturing smiles, birds, cuteness and beauty. The lake is amazing, such a gift from our Father. And Summer Lynn and Shawn look adorable!!! But the picture that got me in the heart is of Maggie. 12 already? Wow... Duhgall turns 10 in March...oh how these precious days of our life slip by.

I am hearing waves crashing now in the music...thinking of our trip to Florida and meeting you and Laura. I had such a sweet day with the two of you and Spencer..and of course, Maggie.

Love you dear and beautiful friend. Always in my heart..And speaking of hearts, your paintings are simply wonderful. All of them. Your sister and mother are blessed to have such a cherished gift.

xxoo

I remember when you started talking like this last time and you left Daisy Cottage. I read this post right after you posted it, but I couldn't comment, because it hurt too much. I know you think it's time to move on again, but I hope your change your mind.

I understand though. YOU of all people know I do. I left before you did last time. You moved to another place on the web and I thought I had left for good. Turns out I just needed to reassess.

Anyway, if you leave, I'll miss you, but I will understand and love you alway, my dear, dear friend.
