  1. Yes, I read the post too and commented. Enjoyed learning more about you!


    • Glad you enjoyed it, Pat! With all of these guest posts and awards where you have to tell interesting things about yourself…I don’t know that there is anything about me that people don’t know. ;)


  2. Thanks for being my guest, Vivian. I am honored to have you visit my blog. :)


  3. Very cool! I remember the first time I read That Little House with my kids. I got tears in my eyes at the end and my kids wondered why I could barely read the words… I think that most affect parents a lot more than children as they have more perspective on life, but kids do get a sense of the passing of time.

    Great guest blog!
