The End: Alphabet Soup

The end of yet another odyssey with Alphabe-Thursday has been reached!  What a challenge it has been at times to come up with a creative post for the current letter of the alphabet.  I've enjoyed this journey with you, my readers and fellow Alphabe-Thursdayers, sharing our posts and lives. 
Thanks, Jenny!

Dear Ms.Jenny, 
I LOVE Alphabe-Thursday!  Thank you so much for hostessing this awesome meme AND visiting EVERY single post!  You have created a wonderful community of bloggers.

It is often challenging to come up with a post for each letter as well as committing to posting for every letter.  But it is so much FUN!

So begins Round 8 in which we start with the Letter "A."    Come visit others' submissions HERE and join in the fun!

NOTE:  You do not have to post for every letter.
