I think that I might be able to get my Joy Dare posts done sooner if I didn't spend so much time looking through my pictures and editing them to add to the blog... but I also think that sometimes, a picture is worth a thousand words. So for now, this post will be without pictures... not to say that I won't go back and add pictures later this week... or next! :)
