It's a great idea but how do you organize your commenting so that it doesn't take hours a day? I don't want to let my friends down but it's hard to keep up!

Happy Valentines Day!!!

I didn't enter because I don't know what my blog categories ever are going to be. I blog about whatever, whenever. Sometimes it's photography, sometimes it's stories, sometimes it's the boy's artwork. I never really know. It's just what we're doing at the moment. It's a great event! I'm going to visit some sites on the list!

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

I am so glad Sandra from Thistle Cove recommended this blog hop because i am discovering a whole new world of the kind of blogs I love ! Blogs that encourage, uplift,& inspire me in the activities and life I already live. Everyone can use some encouragement & learn a few new tricks in their every day life and I see that in so many of these blogs. Thank-you. Thank-you also for your kind comment on my blog.
