Bloggers Meet & Greet

It’s mid October, Canadian Thanksgiving has passed and the American is approaching fast (well, yes it is kind of…). Down here in Australia we’ve been blessed with some amazing weather once more and in a true Aussie spirit it’s time to crank up the Barbie and put some shrimps on it!

  • Check out at least 3 of the other bloggers that have left a comment
  • Share this post with your readers so they get the chance to introduce themselves as well
