2014 A to Z Blog Challenge!

When my writer friend Donna told me about this, my immediate reaction was, "Sounds like fun!" 

The challenge was to pick a theme and then a word from each letter of the alphabet and write a blog on that word. Naturally, I chose Adventuress Travel!

Little did I know it would consume my life for the month of April, 2014.

But I did it, I'm proud of it, and, if you missed some of the alphabet, I'm happy to share all the posts with you here.
