Three Magnificent Years!

It all started at the request of some of my friends.  Three years ago I sat down and decided to write a blog as a way to catalog what I was creating & doing at home.  All I knew at the time was that I wanted to explore recipes, show step by step instructions for friends and give them the things which have made my life easier and more enjoyable.  I wanted to share those good things like I had never done before.

This was my first post on November 23, 2010: Friends & family have been prompting me to create a blog which showcases pictures, recipes & helpful hints that make my life easier and more enjoyable.  I'm not sure where I will take this, but here's to the beginning of something wonderful.  I hope to fill this blog with Good Things for you & your loved ones.

There are two people I have to thank for when I wrote that entry three years ago.  The first is my long time friend of twenty years, Ashley Hoffman, who happens to be a superb graphic design artist.  She was the one who gave me the 'push' to begin blogging.  If it hadn't been for her, I would not be doing this.  You'll read more about Ashley very soon.  The second individual, is my friend & blogging colleague, Andrew Ritchie.  If it hadn't been for his magnificent blog I would not have known where to even begin!  So, to them I say, Thank You!  Good Things by David wouldn't be what it is today if it weren't for their encouragement, kind words and friendship.

As I reflect on these three years of writing, photographing, styling and editing for Good Things by David, I’m amazed at how my audience has grown and how supportive you have been throughout the process.  When I think about how long some of my blogging colleagues have been writing and maintaining a blog, I feel like a newbie in this arena.    

I'm really proud of what I've accomplished here in such a short period of time and I hope to be doing this for many years to come.

Thank You readers for your continued support.  

Here are some of my favorite
