So without further ado…

I am so happy to bring to you a fun blog hop.  I have been fortunate to be blessed with a new bloggy friend and her name is Katherine from
Katherines Corner

She is such a wonderful friend and has the most fabulous outlook on life!  Her blog is gorgeous…her content meaningful and she speaks from the heart.  She loves to share all of her experiences with everyone and people surely love it because her blog is growing by leaps and bounds.  I am honored and thrilled to call her “friend”.  Every Thursday Katherine has a Blog Hop called

Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop
It is tons of fun and you make new friends…share new experiences and you can watch your blog grow in front of your eyes!  
I think it is so cool of Katherine to do this each week and each week she has a special co-host that she teams up with and this week it is me!   Thank you so much my friend…you are a treasure!
