Well, after diligently following the blogs of friends and family for a few years, I thought to myself. . . perhaps I should give it a try. I don't really have a "hook" or an "angle," but maybe the name says it all. Whenever I have people over or organize an outing, my friends call it a Mardy Party. And why not? I guess if y'all are reading my blog you're experiencing a Mardy Party by hanging with me! I hope you enjoy your time here and I'll do my best to be hospitable.
For my first post I chose a picture from my Christmas trip to Peru to visit my sister. My mom took this pic on Christmas Eve after we had returned from hiking Machu Picchu. It was pretty spectacular!
