I want to begin by thanking you for being in my community and for inspiring me every day. I look forward to all your messages, comments and love.

There are so many people you could follow on social media, so you pay me the highest compliment, when you take the time to read my ramblings. You rock. I couldn’t do any of it without you.

There are a few new people in our family, so I thought I’d share some random facts you might not know about me. Here goes.
