Friday, March 9


Welcome back to CAS-ual Fridays, The Clean And Simple Challenge!

It's a bittersweet day for us at CAS-ual Fridays.
We are saying farewell to Julie Ranae.
Creator, DT & Social Media Coordinator

She and I had the best time bringing CAS-ual Fridays to life,
 and I am really going to miss having her here. 
In the past few months she has had some truly amazing opportunities come her way, and the time has come for her to leave CAS-ual Fridays so she can concentrate on all her amazing creative endeavors. 
So, while I'm sad her time at CAS-ual Fridays has come to an end, I'm absolutely thrilled that my dear friend gets to do what she loves, and I will be cheering her on all the way! :)
