Hello Spring and the April Ultimate Blog Challenge

April Hope you are enjoying spring so far. I like Fall the best, but spring is a close second 🙂   Earlier this year I took part in the January Blog Challenge and had a good time. For those of you who are not familiar with the Ultimate Blog Challenge (UBC), it is a virtual event for bloggers held every quarter with a goal for bloggers to write a new blog post every day during the challenge month.  I posted 28 days out of 31 as I was still on vacation until the 3rd. However I made it the rest of the month, and felt very good. Thus I have decided to do the April Ultimate Blog Challenge. Thus I will be sharing a post every day for the next 30 days! It seems like a lot, but I know I can do it if I stay focused and set goals. Continue reading “Hello Spring and the April Ultimate Blog Challenge”

Top 5 Memorable Places I Want to Visit Again

We have been blessed, and have been able to travel quite a bit. Not as much as we would like, but definitely more than a lot of people I know. No matter where we go, or how long we are there, it never seems to be enough time. I always leave sad and wanting more time to explore and learn to appreciate what the country, city or area has to offer. Sadly a week, or even two weeks is not enough. While we have traveled a lot, there have been a few places that grabbed me, and I find myself day-dreaming about being able to visit again one day.  Today, I want to visit these 5 cities and countries again.  There is so much more to see and do  🙂  Continue reading “Top 5 Memorable Places I Want to Visit Again”

Blogging is like a Diary for Adults

DiaryUltimate Blog Challenge Day 21 — I have always loved to write and like most little girls, it was in a pink little diary with a lock that only I had a key for. Little did it matter that my mom probably knew where the key was and would have been able to read anytime she wanted. I don’t know if she did or not, but at the time I felt safe writing down all my secrets, thoughts, dreams, frustrations, excitements, etc.  Continue reading “Blogging is like a Diary for Adults”
