I don't usually post on Sundays. But this is no usual Sunday because it marks the 5 day countdown to London 2012.

I am seriously excited about the Olympics. I think you might have noticed it in previous posts, here and here.

To kick start my Olympics Special, I have decided to do some time traveling. Yes indeed. Today, we will go back to the early days of the Modern Olympics.

Weren't they fabulous?

  1. Hey! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Definitely try cacao nibs if you can find them. They're 100% cocoa, it's ground up cocoa beans. Full of antioxidants so they're good for you. On their own they taste a bit bitter (since it's pure cocoa) but on oatmeal or in granola it's super good and gives a hint of chocolate flavor.

    1. I'll look into and let you know once I try it! Thanks again.

  2. I found this on internet and it is really very nice.
    An excellent blog.
    Great work!


Your comments make my day! Thank you!
