Life Gets in the Way

This post represents my response to today’s Blogging101 brief – “Be Inspired by the Neighbours”. We had to expand on a comment that we made on someone’s blog yesterday. This has been a fun experience so far, lots of new blogs to read and new bloggers to meet. I was just reading back through the…
