I can’t believe one year has past since I hosted the First Annual Judy Garland Blogathon. Unfortunately, last year I was hospitalized due to serious headaches, and was unable to fulfill my hosting duties. This year however, I’m well, and certainly I’m excited to kick this spectacular three day event off.
This Sunday, the legendary Judy Garland would have been 96 years old. For the occasion, all you wonderful bloggers are penning tributes to Judy, her life and career. Please submit your entries below. I look forward to reading them.
Happy Heavenly Birthday Judy.
