    • I know Carol-Anne! It is definitely a lot of work. As soon as I published this post, I had a moment of panic…like, eeeps, what have I got myself into?!? My strategy is to keep the posts short and sweet. Hope to see you around for the series again this year! Let me know if you decide to join in. Cheers, Kerri
