Yay! I have finally learned how to comment on blogs! This is my first time, I am a blog (and commenting) virgin but your blog is just so cute I figured it was worth the effort to figure this world out. Which blog do I love to look at? Yours, of course! By the way, yesterday in church a girl made a comment and just happened to tie in the fact she's been reading this amazing blog of a girl she doesn't even know but which she loves - and guess what? It was your blog and Hillary's! You ladies get around!
