HAPPY FRIDAY Friends of the Blog!!! 🙂 Today is a special day because we have a guess blogger.  One of my BFFs from back in the day, Valerie Williamson, has graciously agreed to share her blog with us today. Valerie is a wife and mom.  She is the author of the blog, Spare Me No Details.  Do yourself a favor, and read some of her blogs.  She’s an excellent writer and her blogs typically make me smile or shake my head, in agreement.  Valerie loves to write and is a self proclaimed, Punctuation Geek.  Personally, I like Punctuation Princess 🙂  I will put a plug in for her skills, if you are blogging, working or writing a paper and you have a question regarding punctuation, or need a proofreader.

Ok Friends, please enjoy the featured blog of the day, Carrot Parenting.
