  3. I am still trying to get more into Twitter
  4. I don’t have any tattoos
  5. I found $5 on the trail yesterday, I wanted to give it a homeless woman in a wheelchair I have been seeing lately, but she wasn’t in her usual spot, so I am bringing it with me this evening and hopefully I will see her!

  1. I was coming to your site to tell you I nominated you for the family award, and noticed my own blog on your page… So thank you! Congrats on that award and this one! I’ve enjoyed our new blogging friendship:)


    • Thank you so much! I have considered getting one over the years but chickened out. I do have a couple ideas for one, it would be tiny, but then again, I worry once its done I won’t like it, so I am not so sure if I ever will! 🙂


  2. Big congrats and super dooper thanks for the award!!!! I used to have my belly button pierced too until my pregnant belly made it look all stupid! And I love that you are going to pass that $5 on. There aren’t many people who would do that. You have a kind heart 🙂


    • Thank you and you are very welcome! And I hope to see her this evening, I didn’t see her Sunday evening, but her things were at her “hangout” still so hopefully she is okay and still around. I think one of the things that made me chose her over some of the other homeless I see, is she always smiles and waves back when I pass her. I feel like to share a genuine smile when from what I can see she has been dealt an awful hand of cards is admirable. 🙂
