Here’s another installment of YouBlog– where I introduce you to one of your fellow blogmies. Remember the goal is to get to know each other! Many of you readers/commenters were born to be friends- I just know it. And I’m out to prove it!

Today I want to introduce you to Victoria.

Seriously. What a name. So fancy and beautiful. I actually got to meet her last weekend and she was super sweet. I mean, one meeting doesn’t make people b-fries, and I don’t know her super well, but what I do know of her is quite fancy and wonderful. Victoria blogs over at Let The Son Shine and her writing is absolutely lovely and inspiring.

Here we are last weekend. We were totally born to be friends. Look! I’m wearing a super cute posy pin. More on that particular accessory tomorrow.


I particularly enjoy when Victoria writes poetry. This post called REJOICE really stands out to me. A friend asked me recently if I ever write poetry. My answer is that I do sometimes for fun, but I’m not near refined enough to be a poet. Victoria, on the other hand, is for certain a poet. It’s absolutely lovely.

So hop on over to her place and say hi- tell her AnnieBlogs sends her sincerest regards. [I mean, that sounds fancy, right?]

Do you wanna be featured one week as the YouBlog-ger? Just email me at annieblogs [at] gmail [dot] com and put “YouBlog” in the subject line. Or leave a comment. I don’t know… just get in touch with me. :)

    Ha! Annie, I love you to pieces. Thanks so much for your encouragement and simply genuinely, caring self.

    I know we were born to be buds for a few reasons. We are sisters in Christ, so we’re family already–and I suspect you may be just as dorky as I am. See, how can we not be friends!? Oh, and there was that quiz I took…what should your parents have named you–and word, I should have been named Annie. You can’t deny the wisdom of a facebook quiz.

    Oh, and I guess I have to tell you the name story now. geez. My name is Victoria Brooke…my entire family calls me Brooke, always has…and then one day I decided that I wanted to be called Victoria. On the first day of 4th grade, I made the switch. Fancy…and LONG. I had to look at the tags on the classroom door to see how to spell it…on more than one occasion!

    And the poetry…I think this is the very thing that astonishes me most about how God transforms us as we seek to live for Him. Since I was a preteen, I’ve been writing the saddest, most morbid, tragic poems. I had never written an upbeat or encouraging word in my life–until God came along and reclaimed that gift He gave me. God can totally get away with the whole takebacksy thing! =]

    I think you’re super sweet, too, and I’m so glad we got to meet..and so tickled to be on your site, because let’s face it…AnnieRocks.

    Love ya!
