There has been a significant increase in traffic on my little old blog. This is in part to a few wonderful people putting me in their side bars. But more specifically from an amazing blog that I had never visited until the owner wrote me a wonderfully encouraging email yesterday. The gentleman calls himself Clayton Holiday over at

He gave me some welcome words of encouragement, and a compliment or two. That’s always nice to read! 🙂 I don’t know what will become of my blog in the future, but as my lifestyle unfolds before me I will definitely be sharing it here.

So, to all you new readers stopping by: welcome and I hope you return. Leave a comment while you are here.
