I want to keep walking away from the person I was a moment ago. Only a good story has a character different at the end than it was in the beginning.

I stumbled upon your blog and loved the ABC's of me, and decided to use it on my blog. I thought of a good "V" question. Vacation of choice? Kinda came to me as I was making up my answers. Thanks for the idea! I really enjoyed reading your blog, I will be sure to keep up with it! Have a blessed day and happy blogging!

So fun to read your blog and get to know you better. Guess what I did after church?... bought blueberries and thought of you!
PS - BBerries - on sale right now at Vons...awesome price... awesome berries! I'd tell you the price but I can't remember it and yes, I'm serious, so maybe I should go eat some and then the price will come to me.
