  5. Thank you so much everyone!! I feel really happy that I earned an award after such a short amount of time :) Part of me feels that I haven't written enough to earn one yet but now I will work hard to earn everyone's praise :)

    To Jessica and Despar, my pleasure, I really enjoy both your blogs and I like passing on awards, so much so that maybe I should make my own ;)

  6. Following you from Girl Talk!

    Feel free to enter your blog in the "Woo Us To Your Blog" Linky each weekend for free advertisement.

    Blogging is so enjoyable to me and I hope you will find it to be a wonderful adventure as well. Many of the relationships I've built online have turned into great friendships as well. It has been such a great bonus!

    By the way, I love your #2 and look forward to seeing lots of your wedding photos!
