Welcome to the sixteenth 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, next week I have a very SPECIAL blog hop in store for you! I’ll be asking that you link to ONE post… something that would make someone fall in love with you and your blog. Stumped as to which post to choose? You can link to your about me page! The idea is you want people to get to know you by reading your ONE post.

This one time hop will be more like a party than a hop and I’ll be telling you more about it next week… and oh yeah, there will be prizes. Say what?! Yup. I said PRIZES! So you’re going to want to come back here next week and get all the the nitty gritty details.

Onto other fun stuff! I would like to extend a warm welcome to this week’s co-host and my dear blogging friend Anne Marie, from Crunchy, Crafty, and Highly Caffeinated. You might recognize Anne Marie from her co-hosting spotlight at the SHINE Blog Hop #13. I’m thrilled to have her back as a co-host! Her blog is full of crafty ideas, yummy recipes, and fun stuff. Please take a moment to pay her a visit and/or follow her on her social media sites.
