Welcome to the thirteenth edition of the SHINE Blog Hop! I want to thank everyone who has been participating in this link party. I’m so impressed by the creativity, diversity, and quality of the posts that have been shared. Thank you for coming here to SHINE each and every week!

Secondly, a couple weeks ago I launched an eight question survey about the SHINE Blog Hop. I would like to thank everyone who participated in the survey. The results heavily weighed on keeping the SHINE Blog Hop functioning the way it has been over the past twelve weeks. So we will be keeping things running the same as they have been. If you wish to SEE THE RESULTS, just click the picture below and you will be shown the document.

I would like to extend a warm welcome to this week’s co-host and my blogging friend Anne Marie, from Crunchy, Crafty, and Highly Caffeinated. Anne Marie shares her many crafty ideas, her yummy recipes, and many other fun snippets on her blog. Please take a moment to pay her a visit and/or follow her on her social media sites.
