So, first off let me start by saying sorry I’ve been gone for months! It was a fun filled summer and I was so busy keeping my daughter busy I had not time. Here we are and it’s already Fall and there is so much going on I knew I needed to post something. I’m not sure if I can do this every week, but, as usual I was in search of different things going on locally and came across so many fun things and just had to share! I hope maybe as the cold weather approaches I will find more time to sit quietly at home and blog. If not, I will be sure to add a list of fun things as I see them. Also, be sure to check out my “coupon page” and “great finds” page- I will update those as often as possible.
My daughter Rosanna has made so many new friends this school year and seems to be a social butterfly, so it would be great to run into her friends at some of these local events. Hope to see you all there!!!!
Happy Fall Y’all!!!
