It’s the Ultimate Blog Party! Please Come!

Hi  You’re invited to the Ultimate Blog Party! 

Ultimate Blog Party 2008 

Hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom

The purpose of the Party is to find wonderful new blogs to visit and to promote your blog as well.  Won’t you join us?


Now, on to the party…I understand that I am to introduce myself to you and tell you a little about blog.  Here goes!

How’d I get my name?

A few years ago we had a hobby farm which we named Harvest Lane Farm.  My husband enjoyed riding his tractor and playing at being a farmer.  The wheat in the back yard whas actually planted by the real farmer down the road. ~smile~  My Farmer Boy planted a nice big garden and a very big to me 2 acre pumpkin patch!  We sold U-Pick blackberries that grew around our property.  We also had a pumpkin patch one year open to the employees at my husband’s day job.  While we were there, I became Laura of Harvest Lane on the internet.  That name just stuck; so, when we moved to town to try to lower our debt, I became Laura of Harvest Lane Cottage.  Now my blog is Laura of Harvest Lane, and my Etsy shop is Harvest Lane Cottage.

What do I do when I’m not blogging?

I homeschool 3 of my 4 children, I am assistant editor and contributing author to the Kingdom Business Journal, I scrapbook, I sew, and I oversee keeping our home.  I say oversee because I don’t do it by myself.  My kids help me a lot. 

 What do I want to be when I grow up?

I want to be a writer, my man’s wife, and  grandma to lots and lots of children!

Why did I start blogging? 

My husband pushed me into it.  I didn’t think I had a thing to write about.  The Lord has inspired me many times when I’ve sat down at the computer.  I’m truly enjoying it now.  I’ve lived through some really tough times; it’s good to share some of what I’ve learned.  I also started so that I would be in practice for writing for the Journal.  See the sidebar if you’d like to see what I’ve written so far.

What do I want to learn this year?

HTML!   More of my Bible. 

I live my life day by day, knowing that I can only trust and depend on God, our creator.  No one else and nothing else is dependable and trustworthy like God.  He is my healer, my provider, my comforter, my Father, my never ending hope in trouble.  I am learning to love Him more, lean on Him more and pray for His perfect will in my life.

Well, I think that’s enough partying for now!

God bless you!  Have a wonderful week!


Happy at Home

    I chose to visit your Blog as part of the UBP.
    I selected your Blog based on your Blog name and I have been delighted.
