Wow it’s been a year since I started blogging. I can’t believe it that a year has gone by so quickly. I am happy that I have successfully completed a whole year of blogging, this is all due to the support and encouragement I have received from family, friends and you my dear readers. It’s been an exciting year for me and am hoping to continue with the same spirit as before. I have big plans for the coming year and hope to expand into more categories and hope to get the continued support from everyone.
