    If you folks are looking for a place to settle, might I suggest Wythe County, VA? It’s one of the more beautiful counties in SW Va. We have both the mountains and the New River. And we could really use a good carpenter.

    How about a designer? 😉 I love your site here.

    You my friends are where I would like to live out the rest of my life. To be able to draw my last breath with the beauty of those mountains filling my eyes would be the closest thing to heaven on earth.
    I am 57 lost my wife 12 years ago, and it seems all I’ve been doing is waiting to die. One of the few things that have brought me pleasure in my life since her passing is the times I was able to visit the mountains, hoping that someday I would find myself there.
    But because of the economy I haven’t been to the mountains now in years. And I begin to wonder if my one dream will ever be realized. Still I keep my hopes alive by visiting Maries Blue Ridge Blog every day to see the stunning shots she shares with us from the flat side of life.
    I will now add your site to my list of places I visit to get my fix for the mountains. All of you are truly blessed to be living in a mystical, magical place as you do.
    Thank you for sharing your pictures with me.

    I happily stumbled upon your blog earlier this year as I searched for something, can’t remember what now. I enjoy your writing, your photos and your sense of humor so much. You share your testimony so transparently through your thoughts.

    I was wondering if I could have permission to use one of your photos of the Great Crested Flycatcher birds as an inspiration for artwork I’ll be doing for a postcard. My family makes soap in Newton (near Hickory NC) and we send out postcards as invitations to our Christmas open house. My mom is in love with birds and I wanted to incorporate that theme with the invitation this year. Please let me know your thoughts on this. Feel free to email me and if I don’t hear from you, I’ll think of something else. jennifer[at]omysoap.com

    Thank you,

    Hi Blue Collar Girl,

    I saw your “Monarch on Mr. Hendrix’s butterfly bush” photo at the url: https://blueridgebluecollargirl.wordpress.com/2007/10/. It’s a really nice photo! Can I use this photo in a pamphlet if I attribute it to you? My elderly father has a nursery on his farm that helps to keep him active in his retirement and wants to put together a pamphlet of some of the types of trees he has in the nursery. A gentleman in my dad’s morning coffee group suggested a pamphlet about the nursery and my dad is taken with the idea. You photo would help turn the pamphlet into a thing of beauty. This pamphlet would be distributed locally. If I can use the photo, should I use your name and url to this web page to attribute it to you?

    Hi, Terry,
    First of all, thanks for asking—-I appreciate it! I’m so glad you like my photo. I’d be pleased for your dad to use my photograph in his pamphlet. My former neighbor, Mr. Hendrix (whose butterfly bush was pictured), would like that, too. He loves plants. Maybe you could just attribute it with my web address, https://blueridgebluecollargirl.wordpress.com in case somebody wants to check out my blog. 🙂 I can always use more traffic.

    All the best, Beth

    I just stumbled on your site also and I have read so many of your side posts. Your photography and thoughts are enchanting. I also like Rick live to be in the mountains when I wake up and I am unable to hike like I once could. Many thanks for sharing your nature walks and thoughts.

    I adore your writings and creativity in just as you are!
    I wish to subscribe to your blog for inspiration and thanks for being you!
    You are special!
    Smiles, Cyndi

    Hi, Cyndi,
    Thank you so much for your kind words. And thank you for reading my blog. I think we all long to be loved for who we are, so it makes me happy to hear that.
    I do love living here in the Appalachian mountains. They are a great comfort and inspiration to me—I feel at home.
    Thanks again for visiting!

    All the best, Beth
