    They loved it! My pleasure, right back atchya. Have an incredible week. :)

  3. Congratulations on the 18 months! I’ve enjoyed many of your posts (I don’t get to as many as I’d like though). I’ll be celebrating 2 years of blogging in June, so I know how you’re feeling at this point. Kind of awesome to hang with something that long, and to know that you can continue with it for as long as you need/want. Okay, I can’t even pretend to write an intelligent response at this hour of the day, so I’m going to bed now. :)

    • Hi Kristy!!

      Thanks so much for the good wishes & the fab compliment. Made me smile this afternoon. :) Congrats on your own upcoming achievement. I know about the awesome factor; it’s like getting to know somebody just through their writing. I love your blog for that reason too; I feel like I know you even though we’ve never met in person. Cheers, darlin & get some rest.
