Genealogy Blog Carnivals
Don’t forget that entries for the first installment of Bound for Mom are due on Tuesday, March 24, 2009! The theme? A Journey of Firsts: “Moms go far and along the way there are so many ‘firsts’ such as first date, first love, first home, first child, and more. Take all of these beginnings and bundle them up into a story of how your Mom got started.”
Also, I just received my Legacy Kit from Cherish Bound and I am blown away by not only the contents but the quality! I will be posting more about the kit (with photos) later today.
