    This is the first time in several days that I have felt human as I have been suffering from the flu. You can’t even imagine how surpised I was when I saw I had been featured on your blog has made my morning. When I say made my morning I mean I am sitting here tears streaming down my face, sweaty from breaking a temperature…HOT mess, pretty picture I know. Maybe I am sleep deprived, maybe because it is my FIRST ever feature or maybe it’s just a small sense of pride that I am featured on your blog and with the many others that I have stalked and admired for so long before deciding to take the blogging plunge. Whichever it may be thank you…so much, I am honored.
