My First Blog


I have to decided to blog the adventures of making memories. I got got back from an amazing trip to the Fiska-Friendzy in Hershey, Pa. I am have withdrawal from orange and chocolate. 7 of us had a great time meeting other Fiskateers, meeting Kathleen Reid (author of A Page Out of Life), and winning more and more prizes. We also had a trip to Hershey Chocolate World and an amazing historial trolley tour around the city. I didn't realize that the history of the township would be so great. That night we were treated to a Chocolate Sensation fountain. We cropped until midnight and the prizes kept coming until we walked out the door. Wendy Jo, Fiskars, and Brains on Fire made this a day to remember. We drove 7 1/2 each way and it was worth the effort.
