  1. Hey Cindy!
    I'm so sorry I haven't been in touch sooner! I did not get an email from you, and I have been so busy that I haven't checked the comments on my last Friday Confession until just now - in preparation for writing tomorrow's Talk Back Thursday post... (Generally I read my comments every day - but this week has been crazy!) Do you want to try email again? You can try either gwendolyn_campbell@hotmail.com OR gwynhug@gmail.com. I can't imagine why it didn't go through the last time... :(
    I hope things are going well! :)
    Take care,
