This is my 8th Blog Anniversary. Those years just seem to have flown by. I have "met" so many wonderful people and traveled the world thru their blogs. I appreciate and thank everyone who has visited and commented on my blog.
For my anniversary post, I am sharing some of my favorite blogs and blog parties. Some of these blogs I have been following since I started blogging. Blog parties like Skywatch Friday, I have always enjoyed I love skywatching, moon watching, sunrises and sunsets. This blog party has followers from around the world, I think it is awesome to see beautiful skies from all around the world. I have done 296 Skywatch posts since I started blogging.
I love to travel and have included many of our trips on my posts with nature scenes, wildlife, sunrises and sunsets have been shared. I hope you have enjoyed my photos.
