So glad I finally stopped by after seeing your comments on Pajama Gardener for so long. After reading more and learning a bit about you on Lisa Kenney's blog and from your profile, I regret waiting so long and look forward to stopping by often! K.

What an amazing quote. It speaks to me so directly at this moment that I've written it down and placed it on the corner of my desk. Thank you for leaving it where I'd find it. :)
