I just keep putting one foot in front of the other…

I have a blog! It feels a little weird to be honest, but I finally caved to the peer pressure from my twitter buddies @Gingerheaddad, @ShawnDPhelps and @theekarenesq One of the things I discussed with Shawn Phelps when she and I met in person were the reasons why I should blog and what I would blog about. I gave […]
