Welcome to the 50 States Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the 50 States Blog Hop! Most of us would love to travel but are having staycations this year. What better way to travel but through a blog hop.

The United States is truly beautiful with many wonderful places to visit and see.

  8. I have never been to CT either. Someday though. Very pretty L/O. I don't or haven't done digital yet. I didn't know it was till I read your post. tfs Tami

  9. I'm a new follower. Not been to CT. Liked your Autumn photo in the CT layout. My fav place to go would be CT to see the NE Autumn colors and another fav of mine if I'm being truthful would be Alaska which I've been to but would go back to in a heartbeat since there is so much to see & do there.

  17. I love the layout. Thanks for sharing it with us. So far, my favorite state to visit is Texas, but that's because we don't go much. I am sure there are many more states I would enjoy more. Hoping to visit South Carolina soon

  18. Great layout! I follow you already. I have 2 states, the first one is Florida to see Mickey and the other one is Missouri. We go to the Lake of the Ozarks every summer with my entire family. It is more the tradition than the location that makes it so special!!

  19. Very Nice LO!

  30. I've never been to CT...maybe eventually I'll get to go...I don't get to vacation often, but my favorite vacation LOCATION tends to be somewhere in the Great Smoky Mountains...however a GREAT vacation really hinges on the people you are with. My best vacations are always spent with my family.

  31. You captured the spirit of CT very well. Thank you for sharing.
