Welcome to our party! This week we have some news to share with you before get to the features and the party. We are sad to say goodbye (for now) to our wonderful friend and most fabulous hosts, Cathy from over at A Peek Into My Paradise. She has made many of us in the blogging world a better blogger with her wisdom but most of all her sweet friendship is a blessing.
Cathy is stepping down not just from a host of this party, but from the blogging world for a bit. Life happens to all of us and for Cathy, it means focusing on family and new chapters in her life. As of Sunday, January 31 she will blog her last post and shortly after that her blog will shut down. She tells me that she'll definitely miss blogging and all of us but will remain active on her social media venues. So, if you have not yet connected with her, this is the time! I've listed her links below. This wasn't an easy decision for her but it's one that needed to be made. I consider her the "mama" of the many link parties I have co-hosted or participated in as she is always "there" as a host in some fashion.
Now, that I've grabbed my tissue, wiped my eyes, and blew my nose; let's get going with this week's features and party! Let's make this the BEST one yet! Also, I invite you to leave her some love on her site, or on any of her social media links (even in the comments below, she'll see them!)
