Before you say anything, the answer is yes, I know I've been the absent blogger these days. And yes I do miss not only my blog and its followers, but also catching up with my new blog buddies and commenting on them on a regular basis. Life is very busy - good busy - and keeping up …
Memoirs and Memories
About two years ago, Lisa Tener inspired me to work with my mother to write A Girl From the Hill.
