The A-List

Hello all! Just got back from a fabulous weekend in wine country with my girlfriends, for my friend Mollie's beautiful wedding. Hopefully I'll be able to share pictures at some point, but my camera is being repaired, so the picture-taking didn't quite go as planned. :( It was amazing though!

Anyway... one of my favorite blog friends Melissa, at Miel et Lait, has paired up with Gigi from Kludgy Mom to create a new networking site for blogger's called The Blogger's Concierge. They are putting on an A List Affair, and I want to be part of it!

So... I'm supposed to share a bit about my blog... Well, I started blogging in August of 2008 to keep my friends and family in California updated while I was adventuring in Portland Oregon. About a year ago, I moved back to the small CA town where I grew up. However, blogging became a lot more to me than just updating my loved ones. It's a community of friends I never would have expected to make, and a place to share my thoughts.

I've been sharing about my faith journey in this post and this one and this one. Sometimes I share about my pups, Penny and Rocky. I also love to travel, and have been slowly but surely sharing pictured and anecdotes from my trip to Spain last summer. I recently had my blog re-designed by Penny Lane Designs (I stumbled on the site because she shares my dog's name) and I love it! And recently, I've been trying to raise funds through giveaways and other fun things for my mission/relief trip to Haiti in August. If you like Mary Kay, please check out this post about how you can help send me to Haiti while buying make-up for you! It's win-win. :) That fund-raiser ends this Friday, but there will be more in the future, and I'd love it if you came back to visit again!

I'm not sure if any of that makes me A-list worthy, but a girl can try, right?

Good luck, and you're on the right track. Believing in yourself can make you an A lister.

I love Kludgymom and Miel, and they're awesome.

Good for trying, and I hope you make it!
