Six months ago today, A Sawyer’s Daughter was born. To commemorate this momentous occasion, I’m re-blogging one of my earlier posts.
Blogging has been satisfying on so many levels and it’s hard to believe I was reluctant to begin in the first place. In just six short months, I’ve become acquainted with a number of incredibly talented bloggers from all over the world. More than anything else, I greatly enjoy reading other’s works and I’m in awe of some of the fantastic photography out here in The Land of Blog.
Thanks to all of you who’ve been apart of this process and have cheered me on along the way!

To say that we’ve been close would be a bit of an stretch. Our familial ties have been strained over the years due to the usual sibling rivalries, petty fighting and misunderstandings. Add to the mix that each of us is so incredibly different from the others and it’s no wonder tension is sometimes in the air at holiday and other family gatherings. For many years I felt jealousy, resentment and not a little confusion whenever I observed sisters from other families who were close knit or who proclaimed to be ‘best friends’. What on earth was wrong with US I’ve often wondered.
