Most of the time, I spend my words in the blogging world on Catholic crafts, activities celebrating the Liturgical Calendar, family traditions…and sometimes family birthday parties and other curious adventures. Here are 7 posts where I have strayed a little out of my comfort zone…and published them as a guest blogger somewhere else!
