For My Virtual Besties {and some blueberry muffin inspiration}

Just like in regular, everyday life, writing a blog has it's ups and downs. There have been times over the past year when I've thought, I think I'm done, I don't think I have another thing to say, what if I'm empty?  There are times when I'm more vibrant than others and am inspired to tackle big projects and share them here, and times when I'm quite uninspired and feel like I don't have a doggone thing to share. There have been times when I've pondered not having a blog, but something or someone always pushes me to keep going. The thing that propels me the most are all of you. I can't see  you, but I know that you visit and I just adore reading your sweet comments. I know that we suffer the same and feel joy the same. I know that you have low valleys and high peaks just like me, we are different, but still very much alike.

I couldn't be more grateful for you all and even though we can't sit down at the kitchen table and share our thoughts over a cup of coffee and some homemade blueberry muffins, you are my sweet, precious friends nevertheless.

So today, I wanted to say thank you for all of you that show up and read my posts and to all you sweet folks that comment from time to time. Y'all really and truly rock my world. I wanted to send a big ole virtual hug to each and every one of you.......... and since I can't share an actual blueberry muffin with you, I can share my favorite Blueberry Muffin Recipe  just in time for a delicious and fresh weekend breakfast:

1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 sugar
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1 well beaten egg
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1/3 melted butter
1 cup blueberries

Mix dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl and set aside. Combine wet ingredients and add all at once to dry ingredients. Stir just until moistened. Gently add 1 cup blueberries. Grease muffin tin and fill 2/3 full. Bake at 400* for 25 minutes.  Makes 12 muffins.

Have a blessed weekend everyone!
