Friend Of The Week – Denyse


Summertime is all about travel – so this week, we’re going “down under” to the Central Coast of NSW Australia to meet Denyse Whelan – a retired teacher and principal who now spends her days blogging at Denyse Whelan Blogs!

To use the word “retired” and “Denyse” in the same sentence is a bit of a stretch, you’ll discover as soon as you visit Denyse’s blog. Even though Denyse lives in a lovely place near the beach, she spends time daily blogging about life, education, health, photography, her creative pursuits and more!

As if her interests weren’t enough to fill her days, Denyse is also married and the proud mother of 2 adult kids and 8 grandchildren!

There are so many fun things to explore on Denyse’s blog. Won’t you drop by Denyse Whelan Blogs and congratulate Denyse on being our Friend of the Week at Create With Joy?

Now It’s Your Turn To Share!

Let's Chat

Question Of The Week:
Would you rather spend your vacation
At the beach, in the mountains, or in the woods?

Please share your thoughts in the comments –
Inquiring minds would love to know!

We’d love the opportunity to get to know you better!
Please introduce yourself in the comments and
Tell us a little about yourself, your blog, and the story behind it.

  1. Thanks for hosting! I hope you have a lovely weekend! Re your question about where I would most like to vacation, I’d be happy vacationing anywhere! However as I’m being treated to a special day of pampering aboard a cruise boat tomorrow, I’d probably choose a cruise vacation right now!

  2. Thanks so much for hosting! Have a fabulous weekend!!!

    Hi Ramona!

    I’m finally back to blogging. Still lots of head shots to process, but excited to get back into blogging!

    I hope you’re doing well! Liam and the cats are doing well and keeping us busy!

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Wow. This was a lovely surprise to wake up to on a cool and sunny Friday in Australia. Thank you so much for sharing my story with your readers. Denyse

    Thank you for introducing a fellow blogger each Friday – and for hosting the inspiring & creative fellowship!
    Happy weekend greetings,

  9. I started Delightful Repast in February 2010 to showcase comfort food with a difference—original recipes that feature sustainable, local, organic, whole foods. Even though I’m an omnivore, I’ve developed lots of recipes for friends with special diets. There are organic, grass-fed, pastured meat recipes as well as lots of gluten-free, nondairy, vegan and vegetarian options.

    Weekly posts often reflect my “heritage cooking” (English and Southern US) and occasionally feature a review of food-related or tea-related products, equipment or travel, relevant to Delightful Repast and its readers.

    My husband is very polite and humorous, often simultaneously, and has said to me after nearly every dinner I’ve ever made for him, “Thank you for the delightful repast.” How could I name my food blog anything else!

    I love a rainy day with a nice cuppa tea, a cat and a book! Thank you for hosting. I look forward to perusing your blog and Denyse’s and checking out some of these great links.
