When we discovered that our family were all off for the Thanksgiving week, we decided to take a trip for some sun, sand and much needed relaxation. Isn’t it difficult to plan vacations when your children are now adults? It is just so hard to get everyone’s calendars in sync. It is even harder when they live in a different state. Why Puerto Rico?

It is wonderful to be on a public forum such as The Commons, sharing what we’ve all come together for, mainly to learn and expand our knowledge of blogging. My name is Loretta, I started Safariofthemind about 8 months ago. At the time I had just returned from a trip to Brazil and thought I’d start writing about my adventures there, add some gorgeous photos, and thus my journey began. My blog mainly focuses on cooking these days, but I also blog on gardening and travel. … Continue reading What makes me tick…..Blogging 101
