The Food Temptress travelled the virtual highway for 60 days, stopping by some fabulous locations and meeting several people. It exceeded my expectations. I cannot wait to go on tour in the near future.
I appreciate all those who supported me during my excursion. I look forward to you joining me again soon. Thank you!
