Here Comes the Sun Blog Hop

The sun is in the upper left top corner, and the design is abstract. The blues represent the ocean or river below. The Tennessee River is very near to my apartment, only about 2 miles.

Foodie Blog Hop- snack mats

Welcome to the final day of the Foodie Blog Hop, hosted by Carla of Creatin' in the Sticks.
