  • Online BlogCon has come to an end, and I want to thank so many of you for making it a success!

      Ha! I’m definitely taking a much needed break…. for a few weeks anyway ;) I was just telling my husband last night that just thinking about next year’s makes me SO tired. And he just rolled his eyes and said I’d be all excited and planning it by next week. LOL. He knows me so well.
