Also, Jennifer over at Party of One gave me this awesome awards. I don't usually re-post awards but I wanted to say thank you and give her a shout out! You're supposed to list 7 things people don't know about you, and I'm hoping you gleaned some of that from this list. Also, the 15 people I'm supposed to pass it on to? If you want it feel free to grab it! I think you're all great :)
