I definitely spent more time looking through tons of images that encompass the followers to my blog than I did actually writing this blog.. First, I came up with this one:
But I immediately thought, “BORING”. We may be a lot of things, but boring, we are not. So, I continued my search. I considered zombies, but then I remembered I’m an adult. So I stopped looking and started thinking. What do the followers of my blog represent to me? Then it hit me!
Diamonds! While I may not know you personally, I know that I appreciate each and every one of you. Just as no two people are the alike, the same is true for diamonds. Beautiful, interesting, complex and admirable. Diamonds. The perfect way to describe my blog followers and guests.
I touched on it briefly a couple of days ago, that I have been in hospital. I am home today but, as you can imagine, I’m a gigantic, hot mess! Even so, I still wanted to send you something brief to explain the irregularity of my posts. I also want to convey to you how much I admire and appreciate you sticking with me.
Look for more posts coming soon. Funny stuff to share with you!
Talk to you soon! xoxo

Talk to you soon! xoxo
After one month, I have had 1075 views on my blog! I’ve not watched any “how-to” videos or measured myself against other bloggers. I’m quite sure I still know next to nothing about the blog world. But, like anything else, I will read the instructions…eventually.
In light of this most recent milestone AND as promised from the beginning, I will slowly allow myself to be vulnerable to you in an effort for you to do the same. So, if you have not already seen a photo of the woman behind the “heartsnlaughs” blog, here you go:
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Karen Page Jennings, and this is my husband, James. This photo was taken at one of our favorite places, “Alabama Jacks”. It’s located on the way down to the Florida Keys. The place has been there forever and it’s fantastic. If you ever get the chance, stop by.
That’s enough information for now.
I primarily wanted to write this as a huge “thank you” blog. Heartfelt thanks to you all who have clicked a button on your computer and have read my thoughts and stories. You spur me every single day to keep going. Thank you so very much! xoxo
