2010-04-01/30 Monthly LOVIEE

Yes, I was a little late with this one. As tempting as it was to get in the April Fool’s spirit, I decided to pass and spend the time coming up with the real deal.

I may add another event in the next couple days depending on what else I find. This is the eighth monthly LOVIEE and Monday marks the six-month anniversary of wide launch. I’m feeling pretty good about how far this blog has come, but it’s also about you, the readers. Love or hate, if you’ve got an opinion either way, I’d appreciate the feedback.

Thursday 04-01 thorugh Saturday 04-03
