** BIG ANNOUNCEMENT **


I feel very honored to be a part of the blog community, and very blessed that my little blog has grown since the day of my first post. I want this blog to focus on paying it forward, so I have decided to re-do my sponsorship platform.

As of right now 100% of advertisement sponsorship proceeds will go to my charity of choice, the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge. There are dozens and dozens of Hope Lodges across the country that give cancer patients a free place to stay while out of town for cancer treatment. 

With just $10, you can get a month long ad and know that it is going to help real cancer patients and their families. And for $25 you get a prime ad spot AND an awesome "HOPE" tshirt to be mailed to you ASAP as my thanks to you!



This is your day to give back and also get some great exposure in return, so please help me raise money for this awesome organization by becoming a sponsor HERE!



Your generosity makes the world go round - thank you!

  14. Our Saturday morning was spent biking around the vineyards in Clarksburg. Our son was snug in his Burley and slept the entire time and it gave our family some much needed time together at the same time squeeze in some exercise.

    I admire your project and would love to support to you!
