It’s hard to believe that just a month ago today, I began creating my blog. Now I have the honor and privilege of being nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by Amy at Insights From The Edge and Mark at Down Many Roads. I greatly appreciate their kindness and consideration of my humble beginnings for this award.  A big thank you to Amy and Mark.  Please check out their blogs–both are great!

Here are the VBA rules:


  • Thank the person who gave you this award.
  •  Include a link to their blog.
