Twelve years ago, I sat down at my computer, opened Blogger, and created an account. Little did I know where that impulsive decision would take me over the next dozen years! Today, my blog has connected me with many amazing moms and given me opportunity to travel and work with great brands, while providing a part-time income for my family and a creative outlet for me. For the next ten days, I’ll be celebrating all of that with five other bloggers in our annual online party, BloggersFete!!!
