2 Years of Memories

Two years ago today, I started this blog. I would say I deserve some chocolate to celebrate, but I already have too much (thanks to my kids who know me well and tried to outdo each other in pleasing me this Christmas). So instead of feasting on food, I’ll feast on blogging memories.

I started out with a BANG–posting a couple times a day for the first few days to fill up my blog so it didn’t look empty. I’m awed at my writing endurance back then. Whew! It makes me tired just reading back through everything.

If you like Chocolate…this post is for you

Award time again. I’m so slow at accepting these that I hope the bloggers who give me these awards will not hate me and think I’ve forgotten about them. I haven’t. I just am a blogging award turtle…slow, but steady.

Tell us a little about yourself, Carrie. Continue reading

I love Ormie’s face at the end.  Priceless!  Thank you ARC productions…or as Cookie Monster would say…”Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum!”
