What I have learned about blogging so far…

I knew … Continue reading

This has been a very interesting week.  This next week … Continue reading

I began the new year as most people do: hopeful for new beginnings and a bright future. I accomplished two things in preparation of the new year: I chose my word of the year and my list of resolutions. My Word I thought long and hard about the things I wanted to accomplish in 2014 … Continue reading
