100 Random Things About Me

February 10, 2014

I couldn’t sleep last night. I’m certain I was thinking about what I had and HAD NOT packed???

I got out of bed and spent some time reading some of my favorite blogs.

I recently discovered Roni. She is quite the inspiration. Her blog has a LOT of information and last night I spent a little more time looking around her blog to see what all she had to say.

One of things I found on her blog that I liked, was “100 Random Things About Me”. I’ve done the “25 Random Things About Me” before, but 100 seemed like a challenge, and she challenged her readers to do it. I was wide awake……so……
