One response to “2011 Challenges & Events

  1. I took part in the Paris in July challenge and had so much fun doing it that I decided to host a challenge which begins in September. I thought that since there are several popular books from the south and the movie “The Help” is opening in theaters tomorrow, I would host a Southern Belle challenge.
