  1. I love it! I am trying to buy new living room furniture and it is so hard to make that commitment. Congrats on the weight loss. I agree with you, when I read that story about the baby I almost vomited. I am hoping, against hope, that a fabulous candidate appears out of nowhere to help us out of this mess... I guessing that won't happen soon.


Please leave a comment! I'd love to hear from you!
