  9. Oh my gosh! I’m sooooo excited. You are like my blog hero, and I actually am featured on your blog!!!! Talk about total happy dance! You just made my night. I’m trying to balance work, family, caring for elderly relatives, and starting a blog this year. I’m trying to figure how to add social media buttons, and now I wish I had that figured out already. Thank you so so so much for the antler wreath feature. I link up each week, and I think this week was the first time I linked up and was in the 200 numbers. Your party is fantastic and has so many great ideas. I just never thought I’d get seen being that far down. I’m just super pumped right now!
