My Life is an Open Book

Hello!  I have a very special post for you today, it’s a little bit out of the ordinary, but still so very fun!  The fabulous Beth, from hello, splendor, is hosting a Blog Crawl where tons and tons of wonderful bloggers give their own interpretation on “My Life is an Open Book”.  Last Friday, The Social Thread, shared her journey of turning her passion for fashion into a career and tomorrow, my dear blogger friend who’ve I’ve actually met in real life, One Sydney Road, will share her story with us!

Hello, Splendor

And this is where my open book begins… wide open… for you all to read!  Do you have your bookmark ready?

Well, that’s all folks!  Hope you enjoyed my story.  And make sure to check out the full list of bloggers here so you can discover new blogs, learn more about bloggers you already know, and leave them some love!  And you’ll have to come back often to see how my twist unfolds!  😉

    Sandy, this is fantastic! I’m not sure how I missed this blog crawl business (I would have loved to be involved), but I’m thrilled I get to see what you put together for it. I love the way you set up this post — it’s just so much fun and reminds me of my days in theater.

    Oh this is just awesome! What part of Ohio is your hubby from? I’m from NE Ohio — Youngstown area, but lived in Columbus before moving to Texas. And my dad had a buckeye tree in the backyard — when I was a kid I used to drill holes in them and make necklaces, ha ha ha!

    Anyhow, really truly enjoyed learning more about you!

    HUGS! 🙂
