Social Media?

You bet. Here are a listing of a few I belong to:

  • Twitter (I twitter a lot about fashion, coupons, my pets, the weather, and food. Consider yourself warned.)
  • Facebook (I check in almost daily but it is a love hate relationship.)
  • Instagram (I check in daily, addicted to “seeing” what others are eating, wearing, doing.)
  • Google+ (I check daily but am still at a loss.)

I’d love for you to follow me and I’ll do my best to follow you in return, let me know you were here.
