    Oh, I am feelin’ the love!
    Sorry to disappear on you. Josh is home on leave (vacation) and we’ve been working on our adoption paperwork. It’s like a mountain of paper. You just wouldn’t believe it.
    We’re hoping that we’ll be parents before the end of the year. Cross your fingers and hop on one foot, will ya?

    Thanks Tipper. You have real talent. I always want to pick up my guitar and strum a few bars when I leave this blog. Tell your brother and Pap the Pappy approves this site. 🙂 I enjoy their music.

    Those cards are beautiful! I am so jealous of your talent. I just noticed that you sell these in Etsy…I would love to buy some of these and do my first real give away. I’m kind of nervous about it because I’m new but I have a few faithful followers and I would love to give them something special.
    Thanks for the inspiration!
