In honor of Leap Day yesterday I thought it would be fun to make a list of 29 facts about me. Some you may know already and hoping some will be new for you. Making lists is one of my favorite things to do as you know and I've even joined a list blog twice in the past. GUESS WHAT??!!  Today I signed up at the last minute to join the 30 DAYS OF LIST again for March. So I thought it would be a perfect time to make a list again to share. During this month I will share some of my lists for you, especially the fun ones. I'm hoping to have their badge on my blog soon for you if you'd like to join. You can sign up anytime and there is a small fee of $8 but it's worth it. My list today is just from my own idea not from the list blog.
Thank you for all the love and prayers you've all be sending to Chardon and their families. They are standing strong and united. There is even a hero in all of this and thankfully 2 of the kids made it thru their injuries. They will still need your prayes to get them thru so keep them in your thoughts. Thank you!
