And I love getting to know you, my blog readers. Every once in awhile we have a day here on the blog where you get to tell us about yourself.
So today, let’s do Six Word Memoirs. I’m game if you are. (My Six Word Memoir is the title of this post.)
Put your six word memoir in the comments.
Let’s get to know each other, six words at a time.
