I don't check my blog stats often (I honestly forget most of the time and only remember when it pops up on my Facebook memories that I posted about the stats one year). When I do, I am often pleasantly surprised - this year, I was FLOORED! Almost FOUR THOUSAND (3, 979 to be exact) … Continue reading 2017 Blog Stats
Sahara, you are my funny, brilliant, musical girl, and remember that no matter how old you are, you'll always be my baby. How did you grow up so fast?
