If you have just discovered My Pleasant Places, let me help get you started by sharing a few interesting details with you. First of all, I’m sure you’ve probably already visited the About page, but if not, you can learn about the premise of the blog and a little about me (the author) there.

Secondly, just so you know, the header (the picture at the top of the page) is an actual picture of one of my real pleasant places. I change the pics out now and then, but they are all personal–the view from my deck (my very favorite place!) or a shot of somewhere I’ve visited (usually, the picture is timely, meaning it is a place I have visited recently).

If you have not already subscribed to the blog, you may do so by leaving your email address in the form in the right sidebar. You will automatically receive any new posts in your inbox, and in the event that I have a special announcement, you will receive notice of that, too. Don’t worry; I promise not to harass you. As of this writing, I have never had a special announcement. But just in case… 🙂

Finally, to acquaint you with the emphases and the values at My Pleasant Places, I am listing the links of some of my personal favorite posts below. Read and enjoy. And, please, always feel free to leave a comment. I love to hear from you!
