Days of the Month: That's a Wrap!

It's hard to believe that it's been a whole 12 months since I started my Days of the Month series, where I shared fun days celebrated each month and some associate blog post ideas.  We celebrated everything from food and drink, to photo and the outdoors, animals and sharing a little more about yourself.
