I have met so many new blogging friends while participating in blog hops, link parties, and trains lately. Oftentimes, I only see the usual suspects. In hopes of expanding my blog and connecting with new and old friends I am trying out some new hops. Today I am participating in the Social Parade over at Smart, Trendy Moms. I realize I'm not a mom, but I am smart and trendy (I think)! I hope this helps many of my current and beloved blogging friends make some new ones too!
