The Great American Town Tour Party!!!

I am hosting my first Blog Party!!! I would be delighted if y'all would join in and participate! Mark your calendars! Wednesday, July 1st!

The Great American Town Tour
Mr. Linky will be up by 9pm central time on June 30th

July 4th is rapidly approaching and there is no better way to celebrate our country's birthday than with a tour of the towns that we all live in... all across America (and beyond! All countries are more than welcome to participate!)

Here are the rules:

Take pictures of your town (OR where you grew up OR have lived)... and anything that you would like to share about it (historically, significance, a story, a little bragging or some local insight). It can be your Main Street... your water tower... your courthouse, city hall, farm fields, city skyline, favorite restaurants, bakeries or shops (Antique and craft shops, home decor stores, yes please!), rivers, oceans, a sample of housing architecture and styles, tourist attractions, your neighbor's rose garden or the view from your own backyard... the possibilities are endless. It will be a little Blogland vacation with each participant's post! I'm so excited and hope y'all will join in the fun! Please pass the word along to all of your blogging buddies or copy and paste the party button onto your blog... the more people that join in, the merrier our Blogland vacation! ;)

Grab the Button!

Can't wait to see your Town Sweet Town! :)

Thank you for your visit. I always enjoy the opportunity to meet a new friend. I have a soft spot in my heart for Texas, because I met my wonderful husband in Houston. I lived there for a year and enjoyed the friendly people and lifestyle.

Your blog is a hoot! The Great American Town Tour sounds fabulous!
