Summer Sun Award


Some of the sunniest things that happen in the blogosphere is that you get to meet creative, interesting people.  Like Anne who writes Tales Along the Way.  Anne has been living in India for six months and now writes about her experiences. But look for a variety of posts on other topics, too, on her blog.  I’ve enjoyed reading her posts, especially since we visited Nepal and India only one year ago. Her greeting/closing of Namaste brings back so many fond memories.

Anne has nominated our blog for the Summer Sun Award, and to thank her, we’ll follow her lead by answering questions and nominating others.

You can visit Anne at
