Today, exactly one year ago, I began the blogging adventure. I wasn’t sure what I find when I embarked upon this journey but I have to say that I am glad I was along for the ride. I have gotten to know some really awesome people and even had a chance to go to a blog party in November in Atlant. I really enjoyed meeting people face to face.
