Welcome to this site every one!  As some of you may already know, I’m Joanna a/k/a Yahobahne.  I love to read, write and was known by most of my college professors as a good researcher.  Having those abilities are good combinations, and that’s a part of what prompted me to set up a blog site.  My spiritual destiny involving the heart to inspire via Yahobahne “Designs” is the other.  In addition, I am a wife to a keepingitreal, great man of God.  And you know what I love best about him?—his sense of HUMOR!! Together we have two fun-silly, but thoughtful, and loving adult children.  Between the two, we’ve a few grandchildren.  When you get a chance, go to the blog post entitled “‘About Me,’ Your Host.'” And there you will find more about me—my interests and hobbies.

And I have to add this bit of information because the colors “blue and white” will be shown on some blogs from time to time.  These colors rep the Pi Gamma Mu IHS in Social Sciences—frat colors.  So, whenever you see them in my blogs, that simply means that I’m repping my chapter—MDTheta; and I hope that my frat will give me a holla. The royal blue and white cineraria is our chapter’s flower, beautiful indeed.

MarylandThetaFlower_CinerariaWell, I hope you find my posts interesting, exciting, and unique to the end that you will be drawn back to this site.  Also, you are more than welcome to add your comments and or “Like” your favorite post(s), only register first.

  2. Hi! I nominated your wonderful blog for the Liebster Award. I’m never sure if people enjoy getting these nominations and participating or not, but I have enjoyed your blog very much. I think your writing is wonderful, and I wanted to send a little shout-out to say so. Please don’t feel that you have to participate, but please know how much your blog and your writing mean to others. Thank you for blogging!

    Here are the Liebster details, if you choose to accept and participate: http://blogofloveliness.wordpress.com/2013/03/18/the-liebster-award-part-i/


    • Wow, CONGRATULATIONS Lady Pishnguyen and thank you kindly for the Liebster nomination. I am grateful for your compliments and shout outs. They mean a great deal, especially after recently receiving the same award as a “Double Portion,” (see my “Liebster” page).
      However, as difficult as it is to decline this participation, I must. Currently, I don’t have the quality time to accomplish every aspect of this award due to the amount of research and writing required for my first novel. Nonetheless, I wish the other 10 nominees the best and I look forward to reading all (of your) posts. Blog on!😊

      • You’re so welcome! And congrats to you on the double Liebster portion. I am not at all surprised, as your blog is wonderful and wonderfully fun. I always look forward to visiting it.

        No worries at all over not feeling able to participate. As I said in my post, my main goal is, hopefully, to bring more people to your wonderful blog. Even though I don’t reach many followers at the moment, I feel that I’ve accomplished my goal if even one new person visits your wonderful site. Good luck on your novel! 🙂

    • Thank you lady Sherline and I’m glad you enjoyed part one. Feel free to read the other part, etc. I’ll be back to your blog soon. Multiplied peace and joy.

    I look forward to reading your posts.

    Happy blogging!


    • Hello and welcome lady Nancy. I’m glad you stopped by to visit and made a “follow” landing. Thank you. Make yourself comfortable, peruse more, and enjoy. 😊

  4. Aha! I finally found your blog again! I wanted to come back to take a longer and better look around, but I somehow lost your email from my inbox. (Truthfully, I probably deleted it by accident. Terrible “user error” >.O) Anyhow, I’m so happy you posted a follow-up comment on my blog tonight, as I was able to get back over here to read some more. And I am loving it!! I’m looking forward to following your blog and reading even more of your wonderful posts. 🙂

  5. So many comments and likes…feel like I arrived at a party while the caterers are cleaning up. Any Way…Guess I’ll just kick back, check it out, and see what’s what. Great smile under those earphones. Hope you’ve got a sense of humor…if you’re reading any of my irreverant posts.

    • Once again sir Scott, thank you for the follow. Idk ’bout the caterers cleaning up: but it looks to me like they’re still serving the food. AHA! You’re welcome to kick back. My home—blog is open to any and all who are not offended at what I serve, usually plate size, healthy messages.
      Thank you for the compliment and hopefully I’ll be able to dissect through your writings, finding the humor! 😄
