  1. Thank you deciding to follow my blog…I hope you will enjoy the trip.

    Be encouraged!


    • You’re welcome! I’m embarrassed that I didn’t quite a while ago. I get caught up in life a lot and probably need to slow down more. There are sites that I follow that I care about a lot because they are really great people from all around the world. I keep telling myself to slow down to check their postings more, and I think that following your blog will be a wakeup call to me to do just that. i look forward to your site.
