Day 5 of the $5 Family Fun Blog Tour was a very kind review from the blog “Literary Time Out“.  It sounds like the blog’s author Andrea Frisby totally gets why I started this writing project to begin with.

Literary Time Out

If you’re a book lover, her blog would definitely be a great source for new release reviews. 

If you’re a fan of popular genealogy-themed TV shows such as “Who Do You Think You Are?” and “Genealogy Roadshow”, make sure to check back tomorrow for Day 6 of the $5 Family Fun Blog Tour.

BLOG TOUR – Day 4 Gets Personal

Today’s stop is extra special for me.  My birth bestie Kerri Jackson Case, Author & Blogger of “Drink, Sleep & Be Kerri” is day 4 of the $5 Family Fun blog tour.  She is an insightful, beautiful writer and I’m honored that she’s a part the tour.Drink Sleep & Be Kerri banner

Friends since birth, Kerri incorporated pictures from the past & a history of our friendship in her post.  In honor of TBT, I thought it would be fun to incorporate some of my own blasts from the past pics.

Please check out her blog and like her on Facebook for some smart & sassy Southern storytelling.


Thank you to the blog “The Gifted Gabber” for being the stop on day 2 of the $5 Family Fun blog tour.
