Hello Jessie,
I just found your Blog and I adore it.
Those classes look like a ball. I might have to think about taking one someday.
I wanted to ask permission if I could snag a picture you have listed below. On the Mother's day post. The one that says Domestically Disabled. I laughed so hard when I read that. Especially since I too am a redhead as in the picture. LOL I would love to post this on my blog. If you mind then I totally understand. I will respect your wishes.
Thank you for the inspiration, giggles and not that I wanted drool but got it. LOL
I am adding you to my links. What fun.
Thanks again
