How fun! I'm in another blog carnival and we all write on the same topic on a certain day. The topics are broad and open to interpretation. (The first one was "beginnings.") Might be fun to try with NCW.

Maggie said...

Thank you Kerrie! I had a great time reading blog after wonderful blog.

Kerrie said...

Michelle, I like that idea, we will do that for our next carnival.
Maggie, you're welcome.

Thanks for listing all of us. My blog stats show that people are reading this and jumping over to my blog.

I am so glad to hear that. We will do it again soon--this time with a topic like Michelle suggested.
