    Hi Natalie. I love your blog so much that I have nominated you as a Rocking Girl Blogger in my blog. I had to nominate 5 blogs that I like and where I find inspiration. And yours is one of them.

    And now it is your turn to find someone to nominate. 5 actually.

    Good luck.

    We’ll be there on Sunday to take the wittle ducky off your hands! Sandy’s volunteered to take him to an AA meeting. You think she’s being nice, but she’s all about the free coffee.

    Looks like you got tagged to nominate 5 blogs that you like! Mine better be in there. Your inspiration was “I had to, because she knows where I live”.
