Today is the first day of A to Z Blogging Challenge. For the letter A I have chosen the word Arbitrary (happens to be the month’s theme as well). Tomorrow…the letter B. I think we need some bubbles or baubles, maybe some blunders or bungles. I’ll let your know tomorrow.

Until then, I hope your day is filled with wonderful arbitrary happenings.
