The Archer's Guild isn't even a year old - it began May 5th of this year. But it has evolved one tiny tweak at a time. I'm thankful for all of you who have been diligent readers, who have taken a few minutes to leave a comment (I love hearing y'alls insight!), who have encouraged me to continue writing, who have offered up suggestions to improve TAG.

They evolve over the years because a person or group enjoys doing something every year and it becomes a staple that everyone would miss if it didn't happen.
One such tradition for us, sort of fell into our laps - the annual Jolibois Family Christmas Picture.Read More
