Well, first posts are always the hardest, but I do want to say hello and thank you for joining me in my little spot on the web. It was a New Year's goal of mine to start a blog and keep it up throughout the coming months. My plan is to focus on the things I know and enjoy, hence the Smiles, Shopping and Self Indulgent Prattle. I will share a smile, a find and an occasional rant or story. Please join me and share your own!
