Aria: Thanks, Sweetie...I didn't do too many changes, just little things here and there. I don't have a clue how to redesign my blog like you are doing! I would like to come up with a better header, I will have to read up on that.
I will go to your blog right after I write this and get my "present" (award!) You are such a Sweetheart. I bet if I lived near you, we would become buddies and visit each other a lot. ha
In my mind, I could never "pass you up" are a born comedian with a huge heart. Back atcha with a whole bunch of blogger love!!
