Thanks for reading/noting me. I love your blog too, I'm currently reading and, as you said you do, going back and reading old posts.
Thanks for your kind words, they meant a lot to me.
We seem to have a lot in common. I also scrapbook and watch JK+8....even though I don't really "like" them any more!
