Together on Tuesday {Join Us!}

Temperatures are rising, the days are wonderfully long, and the lightening bugs are twinkling at night.  With summer's arrival, many of us will be spending less time blogging and more time enjoying life.

I know my computer time will be limited, but I still want to be purposeful connecting with other women.  From ten weeks this summer (June 19th through August 21st) my real-life friend Dorie and I are hosting Together on Tuesdays, a link-up for women to share about themselves while getting to know others.  Together on Tuesdays is just a casual way to meet and connect with other women because being together really is more fun!
Week #1(June 19) Introduction to self and link to favorite post
Week #2 (June 26) Favorite food or recipe
Week #3 (July 3) Favorite book or film
Week #4 (July 10) Favorite place (local or vacation spot)
Week #5 (July 17) Summer plans, activities, and traditions
Week #6 (July 24) Tell us about your family (those in your home or beyond)
Week #7 (July 31) Tell us about where you live (local area or your home)
Week #8  (August 7) Favorite backyard (or neighborhood) activities for summer
Week #9  (August 14) Person who influenced your life
Week #10 (August 21) A summer wrap-up or fall plans

We'll begin a week from today, June 19th, with week #1's topic...an introduction to yourself!  Instead of the standard introduction, want to get a bit creative?  Maybe you could help us get to know you by showing snapshots of your typical day, sharing a weekly routine, telling about a recent unusual morning, creating a list of 10 lesser-known facts about yourself, top 10 favorites...or whatever you want!  Feel free to include a link to a favorite post so that we can explore your blog a bit more, too!

How you can participate...
We know you are busy, too, so there is no obligation to participate every week, just join the fun when you are able!  Each week will have its own post theme (as noted above), and you are always welcome to link to a previous related post as it applies. Though we do not have an official "button," you are welcome to use the Together on Tuesday image.  When you link up with the weekly theme, please include a link to the link-up so others might participate, too, and then visit These Grace Filled Days or This Simple Home add your post to the link-up.  Then, visit the other participating ladies to get to know them, too!

Would you like to connect with other women?  We hope you might come Together on Tuesdays!    Come back next Tuesday to link up your post!  I can't wait!
